Kidman Family fonds

  • CA UVICARCH SC624
  • Fondo
  • 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.

Dickens Fellowship (Victoria Branch) fonds

  • CA UVICARCH SC477
  • Fondo
  • 1913-1998

The fonds of the Victoria Branch of the Dickens Fellowship is comprised of documents reflecting the activities of the Branch, such as correspondence, meeting minutes, membership information, programmes, scrapbooks, posters, menus, and financial records, dating from 1913 to 1998. The fonds also includes ephemera pertaining to British author Charles Dickens, including scrapbooks, greeting cards, and portraits, which the Dickens Fellowship compiled. The fonds is a window into the Fellowship’s founding, originally as the Victoria Dickens Club, events, and connection with other branches and the Dickens Fellowship. Many of the documents reflect the work of Dorothy Hewitt White who served the Fellowship in several capacities. The fonds provides insight into the ways in which Charles Dickens has been read, performed, and commemorated in Victoria, and more broadly, the social activities of a literary society in Victoria, predominantly in the first half of the twentieth-century.
