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.
This material was created and compiled in the course of research for the preparation, firstly, of a bibliography of Roderick Haig-Brown’s writings, and secondly, for a biography of Haig-Brown.
Acquired from the Archives of the University of Victoria, included in a box of material related to Roderick Haig-Brown. It is not known how or when this material was acquired by the University of Victoria.
Arrangement of this accession was imposed by Special Collections. Because the material was not received directly from Butler and was in considerable disarray when received, it was not considered worthwhile to retain its order on receipt.
