Biographical history

Eileen Keel was born in Vancouver in 1918 and graduated from Burnaby South High School in 1936, winning a $150 Junior Matriculation Scholarship. She won several other academic prizes in school, including the Governor-General’s bronze medal for Burnaby in 1932. She enrolled at UBC later that year and was able to earn a scholarship or bursary every year after that. She graduated in 1940 with a double major in English and French and a minor in German. She married Roy Cassidy in 1951, moved to Coquitlam, and was a local high school and elementary school teacher for many years. Eileen Cassidy died in 2017.

Custodial history

This written record of Eileen (Keel) Cassidy was initially sent by her to the UBC Development Office, along with a donation, in August 2015. It was forwarded to the University Archives by Leanne Bernaerdt of UBC Development.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of nine pages of handwritten excerpts from Eileen Keel’s diary covering the school years 1938/39 and 1939/40, and one page of photocopied prints depicting the UBC campus during this period and Keel’s graduation.
