We mourn the passing of Nova Scotia writer Budge Wilson, perhaps best known for her children’s books, including Before Green Gables, a prequel to L.M. Montgomery’s beloved series.
Before Budge became an award-winning writer herself, she was a Dalhousian, graduating with a BA in philosophy and psychology and completing a Diploma in Education in 1953. The Archives is proud to hold her personal papers, which she donated in 29 accessions between 1993-2018, and include these drawings she made for the 1948 Dalhousie University yearbook.
