Biographical history

Dates on some of his notebooks indicate Curtis W. Elliott attended the University of Saskatchewan from 1920-1922 in the college of Arts and Science, making him a contemporary of Jean and Lucy Murray, Bertha Oxner, and Colb McEown, to name a few. His professors during these years are likely to have been A.E. Cameron (histology and zoology); may well have been T. Thorvaldson for chemistry; and Frank Underhill taught the course in English History, using Green's Short History of the English People. Professors for English, physics and Latin are less easily identified but may have included R.A. Wilson, Jean Bayer, E.L. Harrington, and W.G. Sullivan, all of whom were on faculty at the time.

Custodial history

Donated to the University Archives by Norine Showell (née Elliott) on 30 June 1999.
