传纪历史

John Laurence Russell Meredith was known as “Laurence,” “Laurie,” and “Larry.” Before attending UBC, he worked for a lumber camp. This allowed him to interact with the Kwakwaka'wakw ("Kwakiutl") First Nation. He wrote four articles about the nation that the Library of Congress published. The publishing fees allowed him to attend UBC. He graduated in October 1929 with 2nd class honours in English and Latin. While at UBC, he was literary editor of The Ubyssey, president of the Letters Club, winner of the University Prize, English honour student, member of the Players' Club, and the Publications Board. After graduation, he moved to London and became a teacher. He soon joined United Press International. He joined the RAF during WWII.

保管历史

Materials received from Tim Stanley of London, in April, July, and August 1991, which he acquired from the estate of Laurence Meredith.

范围和内容

The fonds consists of records and ephemera pertaining to John Laurence Russell Meredith and his family from 1863 to 1990. Records and ephemera pertaining to his father’s life are of genealogical interest as they provide insight into who he was. Records pertaining to his sister’s death show the painstaking detail the family took in providing a meaningful burial for her. The UBC ephemera provides a glimpse into Laurence’s social life at UBC. The music and theatre programs show his interest in the arts from a young age. The photographs provide valuable information on who his family was, what Laurence liked to do, and the activities in which he participated. His diary, letters received by him, and a list containing the translation of various words and phrases of the language of the Kwakwaka'wakw First Nation provide insight into who he was as a person.
