Biographical history

Arthur Patterson Webb was a Presbyterian minister in Croydon. He attended Westminster College Cambridge, 1919-1922, on scholarship for the ministry and later became deacon of St. George's, Croydon Presbyterian Church. He wrote devotional poetry, hymns, occasional poems, and compiled calendars and anthologies. He also used the pseudonyms Arthur de Croindene, and Arthur d'Avalon.

Custodial history

Very little is known of this author or how his collection arrived in Victoria. The box it was contained in had "COLEBECK" written on it, but it also had "Mrs Patterson Cordova Bay Rd." These are the only hints as to its provenance.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of personal papers including a diary (1923) and correspondence; professional papers, including: appreciations, music, copywriting, magazine publications; and papers that he collected including pamphlets, press clippings and ephemera.
