Name of creator
Dorothy May was born 13 Feb 1912 in Stonewall, Manitoba. She worked for the E. Eaton Company until her marriage to Phil Matthewson in 1943. They had one daughter, Joan. Dorothy taught both piano and singing, and was active in local music festivals in Stonewall. In 1967 Dorothy was awarded the Canadian Centennial Medal for her contributions to music in the community.
Dorothy May Matthewson died 27 Oct 2006 in Manitoba.
Dorothy’s father, Oliver May, was in a band that was in Edmonton before 1910. Dorothy sent the photograph to the Mayor’s Office (Ivor Dent), who then forwarded the photograph to the archives. It is assumed Dorothy received the photograph from her father, but it is not known how Oliver May may have acquired the photograph.
