Author Tags: Art

Doreen Walker was instructor emerita of the Department of Fine Arts at UBC when she edited Dear Nan: Letters of Emily Carr, Nan Cheney and Humphrey Toms (UBC Press, 1990, 1991). It provides 150 letters that Carr wrote to her old friend from Ottawa, Nan Cheney--who died in her 89th year on November 3, 1985--and the much younger Humphrey Toms. Cheney's letters were given to UBC Special Collections in 1969. The letters in the book date from 1930 to 1945, Emily Carr's most productive period.
