Dates of existence


Richard Butler was a Master of Arts candidate in the Department of English at the University of Victoria in the mid-1970’s. His Master’s thesis proposal was a bibliography of Roderick Haig-Brown’s works. After his thesis proposal was rejected by the Department of English, Butler intended to pursue the publication of the bibliography outside his M.A. program. He later directed his efforts towards the preparation of a biography of Haig-Brown. Butler was in correspondence with both Ann and Valerie Haig-Brown through the mid-late 1970’s and received their active assistance in the accumulation of material for the biography. There is no indication that Butler published either the biography or bibliography.
