Dates of existence



Lionel Haweis (1870-1942) was born in Litchfield, England and educated at King William's College, Isle of Man and Marlborough. He married Lucy Mary De Vergette of Peterborough and, in 1907, emigrated to Canada, where he opened a photographic studio. Later he moved it to Vancouver under the name of Rossetti Studios in partnership with Jack Loudon Ranier. In 1918 he was appointed to the staff of the University of British Columbia Library, retiring in 1939. He became well known in literary life in Vancouver. He was the founder of the UBC Arts and Letters Club, a member of various academic clubs and the Little Theatre, and the first honorary secretary of the Vancouver Overseas Club.
