Kidman family fonds

  • CA UVICARCH SC624
  • Fonds
  • 1829- 1930, predominant 1895- 1912

The Kidman family fonds consists of three family-owned albums. Each album was produced with different degrees of collaboration between Henry Kidman, Lilian Kidman, Ella Kidman, as well as their other family members and friends. The collection includes one art album: a scrapbook consisting mostly of art created by the Kidman family. Additionally, the scrapbook contains original artwork by non-family members, greeting cards, and some family memorabilia—including a letter addressed to Mary Ann Elliot Lines, Henry Kidman’s mother, written on the evening before her wedding. The collection also contains two autograph albums: one owned by Lilian Kidman and one owned by Ella Kidman. Given to the two sisters as Christmas gifts in 1897, the two commercially made albums match aside from the colour of their covers. Both Lilian and Ella Kidman employed their albums to collect autographs, inscriptions, and artwork from their family and friends. The sisters had many mutual friends, and their respective autograph albums contain similar entries from their shared connections.
