In today's episode, we join John McIssac and Margaret 'Peggy' Farnell (O'Conner) for the first part of their September 20th, 1984 interview. Farnell, a veteran of William Stevenson's security services during the Second World War and later librarian at the University of Alberta, describes her childhood and education as a child of one of Edmonton's wealthy pre-World War One business elites.
