Geschiedenis beheer

Bereik en inhoud

This collection contains materials created by, or about, Canadian author Robertson Davies (1913-1995). Davies was editor of Saturday Night and the Peterborough Examiner prior to joining Trinity College, University of Toronto as professor of literature. The author of numerous plays and books, Davies is perhaps best known for The Salterton trilogy and the Deptford trilogy. He received both the Stephen Leacock medal for humour and the Governor General's Award for fiction. Some of the material in this collection has been annotated by Davies, including copies of two draft manuscripts which are inscribed "to Maisie." "Maisie" is believed to be Davies' sister-in-law, Maisie Newbold (1915-2001), who was married first (in 1946) to the Australian painter Peter Purves Smith (1912-1949) and later (in 1964), to their friend and fellow artist, Russell Drysdale (1912-1981).
