Dates of existence



Annie Charlotte Dalton was born in Birkby, Yorkshire, England on 9 December 1865. She was the daughter of John Armitage (1837-?) and Sarah Elizabeth Stoney (1842-?). As a child, she developed an illness that left her hearing impaired. She was educated privately by her grandparents and turned to writing as a refuge. In 1891, she married businessman William Dalton (1866-1953) and the couple moved to Vancouver in 1904, where they both became involved in the artistic scene. William served as director of the Vancouver Art Gallery while Annie served as vice-president of the Vancouver Poetry Club and was an active member of the Vancouver Poetry Society and Canadian Authors Association. Dalton published her first collection of verse, The Marriage of Music, in 1910. Following the publication of eleven volumes of verse, she was named Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in 1935 and was awarded the Tweedsmuir medal for best poem in the Canadian Poetry Magazine in 1937. She died of a spinal embolism in 1938.
