Name of creator
Annie Dalton was born in Yorkshire, England and displayed an early interest in painting and poetry. In 1891 she married Willie Dalton and in 1904 moved to Vancouver, British Columbia. Although well-known in literary circles, Dalton did not gain a lasting popularity.
Following Mrs . Dalton's death, the collection was retained by Willie Dalton and was eventually passed on to the Daltons' only child, Edith (Mrs . Sydney Scott). Mr. Scott, a reporter with the Vancouver Province, arranged many of the papers into subject files, and added penciled notations on envelopes or memo paper. Following Mrs. Scott's death in 1981, the collection was bequeathed to her son, Dr. Tony Scott, of the Department of Economics at UBC. He donated it to Special Collections in the fall of 1982.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of biographical material which include poems, speeches and photographs, correspondence dating from 1905 to 1938, and subject files containing clippings, pamphlets and handwritten notes. As well, there are manuscripts in the forms of essays, articles, speeches, and poems, notebooks, scrapbooks of memorabilia and illustrations used for Dalton's books. The fonds also includes published works and reviews.
Immediate source of acquisition
In arranging the collection, the original order of the papers was retained as far as was practical, although files of biographical materials and letters were artificially created. Some printed items of no direct signigicance to Mrs.Dalton's work were de-accessioned.
