  • 1882

The recipient of the letter, Oscar Wilde, wit and dramatist (1854-1900) was a contemporary of Rodd's at Oxford. In 1881 Rodd published a book of verse, Songs in the South. Wilde had this book republished in the United States in 1882, when he was visiting there, by J.M. Stoddart & Co., of Philadelphia. The title was changed to Rose Leaf and Apple Leaf and Wilde wrote an introduction, "L'Envoi". The letter makes no reference to the book but was written to Wilde in the United States.

George M. Kennedy

  • RC0851
  • Item
  • 1912-1916

This album was given to Kennedy, who lived in Collingwood, Ont., for Christmas 1912. The album contains b&w photographs that depict life there as well as trips to Wasaga Beach and the Nottawasaga River, Peterborough, Niagara Falls and Port Dalhousie, and Porcupine. The album arrived unbound so the order of the pages may not be correct. Notable photographs include Wahnapitae Camp, the 1912 flood, lakes ships such as the Turret Chief, the City of Midland and Dalhousie City, as well as the Bank of Ottawa in Porcupine. Some of Kennedy’s friends or family are identified in the album : various members of the Beasley family, Leila Ironside, Nettie McLeod, Leon Bosdet, V. Fitzgerald., Grace Stubbs, Miss Whalen, O.W. Wylde, Miss Richardson, Dorothy Mair, MacKay family, and Josephine White. Presumably it is Kennedy who appears with the caption “And now I wear the kilts”; there is another photograph where he is with V. Fitzgerald. Most photographs are not captioned.
