PHILLIPS, Elizabeth




Author Tags: Women

As the daughter of Daisy and Jack Phillips, she co-edited a collection of her parents' correspondence as pioneers in southeastern British Columbia called Letters from Windermere, 1912-1914 (UBC Press, 1984). Most of the letters were written by her mother to her family 'back home' in England from the Windermere Valley where the Phillips had difficulty adapting. The couple abruptly returned to England with the outbreak of World War One after three years. Daisy's husband died in battle, bringing poignancy to her final letters. Elizabeth Phillips resided in England and collaborated with UBC geography professor Cole Harris.
