Mary Williams was born in Westville, Nova Scotia. From childhood she loved music and reading and in her late teens wrote her first two published poems. In 1906 she married A. Hugh Williams and then moved to Winnipeg where she taught music and wrote poetry.
The fonds consists of the unpublished manuscripts of It Seems to Me, Faith and Fancy, and Broken Crystals. These typescripts date from the period 1935-1950 when Williams was travelling across Canada. The fonds also includes printed and published poems (1936-1945).
