Custodial history

Scope and content

Paige Pinneo's papers fall into two series: personal records, and material relating to her work as an art teacher. Personal papers contain family photographs and a genealogy; correspondence with family and friends, much of it on art and education, 1937-1976; a diary of her voyage to Indonesia, 1962; papers concerning her property at Carillon and its expropriation by Hydro-Qu├ębec, 1957-1959; and files of correspondence and newsclippings documenting her involvement with the Canadian Cancer Society of Nova Scotia, 1967-1974. As an art teacher, Paige Pinneo organized student exhibitions of textile designs: these are described in her articles, 1947-1948, a transcript of a C.B.C. radio interview, 1950, correspondence, newsclippings and photographs, as well as samples of student designs. Manuscripts, research notes, and printed versions of a number of her book reviews and articles are extant for the years 1943-1974, together with exhibit catalogues. Files of letters, notes and reports record her work for the Federation of Protestant Women Teachers of the Island of Montreal, 1943-1944, the Provincial Association of Protestant Teachers Curriculum Sub-Committee, 1947-1949, and the Committee on Art Education, 1948.
