About this title

Synopsis:

Annie Garland Foster was born in Fredericton, NB, in 1875. She was an educator, nurse, politician, social reformer, journalist and biographer of Pauline Johnson. But she was also a bit of a mystery. In 1939, Annie wrote an autobiography titled Passing Through in which she described the challenges and adventures of her earlier life. but despite her efforts to share her story, she was an intriguingly private person. Her memoir, peppered with pseudonyms and cryptic information, reveals more about the mysteriousness of her character than about the events of her life. In this thoughtful and thorough biography, Frances Welwood begins her work where Foster abandons her tale. Welwood follows her elusive subject from Fredericton to Nelson, giving historical context to Annies insightful and cinematic prose. But most exciting of all, Welwood finally sheds light on the events described in the six pages excised from Passing Through: the circumstances connecting Annie to a 1926 murder trial.

About the Author:

Since the age of twelve, Frances Clay Welwood's ambition has been to write a book. In 1990, she encountered Annie Garland Foster and this dream slowly became a reality. They never met, as Foster passed away in 1974 at the age of ninety-nine, but Welwood spent nearly two decades painstakingly researching and gathering the details of this enigmatic woman's life and her important contribution to Canadian history. Welwood is an accomplished historian and has written articles for BCHistory (previously BC Historical News), Manitoba History, Resolutions: Journal of the Maritime Museum of BC, and local news media. She has recently been awarded the 2010 Yandle Prize for best article in British Columbia History for her story about Lukin Johnston. Passing Through Missing Pages is Welwood's first book. Frances lives in Nelson, BC.
