The research focused on finding more local details, in particular, more on the life and times of Harry Bronfman's sojourn in Yorkton, the involvement of his brothers Abe and Sam in the community's life and the role the Bronfman family played from 1915 to the mid 1920s during Prohibition years in Saskatchewan.
