In 1982 he had one daughter, Rhiannon Williams, with his first wife Elizabeth Williams. His long-time partner Deborah Russell had two children. Glenn Howarth died in Victoria, B.C. on July 26, 2009.
In 1970, Howarth graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from UVic. After graduation Howarth worked as an art critic, writing regular articles for both the Victoria Daily Times (1970-1973)and the Montreal Star (1970-1971).
Throughout his career as an artist, Howarthwas honoured with many exhibitions including one-man shows at Bau-Xi Gallery (1975, 1976) and the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria (1977, 1985) and group shows at AGGV (1974, 1975, 1976, 1990, 1997, 1999), Vancouver Art Gallery (1978, 1978-79, 1990) and Maltwood Art Gallery (1984, 1991).

Fonte imediata de aquisição
Donated to the archives by Elizabeth and Rhiannon Williams in 2012.
The materials came to the archives in folders and binders, or as loose documents. The records in file folders and binders were roughly organized based on function or date. The order of all the materials was retained in the archival arrangement in order to preserve any original order. For preservation purposes, all original file folders and binders were removed by the archivist and replaced with acid free folders. Groups of documents were maintained with slips of paper and any writing and inscriptions present on the original folders or binders were recorded on these slips.
