Name of creator
Don Wilcox (1910-1967) was the son of Caswell and Nellie Schofield Wilcox. He lived on Wood Island and in Seal Cove, Grand Manan Island, both in New Brunswick. Don married Myrtle Nelson Anderson (1900-1976), widow of Bartol Anderson. She had two sons from her previous marriage, Nelson and Gerald, who are listed in the Wood Island School register.
Don was the youngest of nine children. His brothers Archer and Leland (Lee) became locally famous for writing songs and poetry. Don's uncle Hiram Wilcox was also a poet. The family recorded many of the interesting adventures of their lives and some of these stories are in this collection.
This collection was found in an old trunk by Gerald Anderson, step-son of Don Wilcox, and his wife Jeanne when they were doing renovations to the family house. A children's story book that was listed when this fonds was accessioned is missing.
Scope and content
This collection contains poetry written by a number of authors, including Archer Wilcox, Hiram Wilcox, and Lee Wilcox; stories of shipwrecks; obituaries; and Wilcox family history. Also included are the 1928-1929 Wood Island School register and a 1963 assessment list for Grand Manan. There is also a picture of a page from the Wilcox family Bible.
