Biografie

Margaret Peterson was born in Seattle, Washington. She obtained a B.A. in 1926 and an M.A. in 1931 from the University of California at Berkeley, and joined the Fine Arts Faculty at Berkeley in 1928. She married Howard O'Hagan in 1937, and first moved to Victoria, B.C., in 1956. Her prizewinning art has been exhibited throughout North America.

Geschiedenis beheer

Materials were received by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria from Peterson’s executor and former AGGV Director Colin Graham following Peterson’s death in 1997. Custody and ownership of the materials transferred to the University of Victoria in 2010.

Bereik en inhoud

The fonds reflects Margaret Peterson’s artistic processes and practices, research interests, pedagogy, her relationship with Howard O’Hagan, and her relationships with friends, patrons, fellow artists, galleries and various institutions.

The fonds consists of correspondence, photographs, biographical documents, diaries and notebooks, financial and business-related documents, grant applications, teaching materials, unpublished poetry and manuscripts, exhibition catalogues, clippings and publications, drawings and small artworks, painting materials, objects collected by Peterson, and various ephemera.

Correspondents include Howard O’Hagan, Elza Mayhew, Glenn Wessels, J. Russell Harper, Jean Varda, Dorothy and John B. Grover, Joy Ling, Walter Askin, Robert and Sarah Amos, Helen Anderson, R.W. Peterson, Ellen Charlotte Peterson, and Jane Hanks.

The fonds has been arranged into five series: Biographical, Art Practice, Publications, clippings and collected ephemera, Teaching, and Howard O’Hagan Materials.

Ordening

The records arrived to the archives disorganized and little original order was discernable. Robert Amos, who assisted the archives in identifying an arrangement, subsequently arranged the records into files representing like functions and material types.
