Name of creator
Lillian Alexandrina Williamson was born on April 10, 1898 in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. In 1914 she came to Grenfell, SK and reenrolled in the University of Saskatchewan by 1918. Lillian received a B.A. from the University of Saskatchewan in 1921, with high honours in English and French. She is also listed as having taken a summer school class for Teacher’s courses at the U of S. Her name was listed as a graduate student in the UBC 1926-1927 Calendar, also in English and French. She died in 1985 at the age 87 in Vancouver, B.C. Her death certificate lists her profession as school teacher.
These albums were found in the office of a retired employee of Langera College. They had no record of the albums and since they contained images of the U of S as well as White Rock offered them both to the U of S and White Rock Archives. They went first to White Rock Museum and Archives where they were examined, digitized for their records, and then sent on to the U of S Archives and Special Collections for permanent retention. As there was no known provenance the images and few names within were compared to the yearbooks and it was determined that the likely creator of the albums was Lillian Williamson.
