He exhibited his work in B.C. Artists annual exhibitions in 1942 and 1943. It was noted that the artist was living in Powell River at the time.
BC Vital Statistics provides information that Gaitskell married Kathleen Harte on March 16 1934.
A footnote in the 1954 Vancouver School Board publication "Elementary
School Arts & Crafts" recommends the book "Children and Their Art"
written by Gaitskell. A look for that book on Bookfinder turned up a
number of other books apparently written or co-written by Gaitskell:
Art & Crafts in Our Schools
Art Education Through Adolescence
Art Education for Slow Learners
Art Education in the Kindergarten
A bit more internet research yielded the fact that Gaitskell was a Founding President of the Canadian Society for Education Through Art, and the Chairman of UNESCO's 1951 Bristol Seminar "which gave birth to the International Society for Education through Art." The former group has given the C.D. Gaitskell Memorial Address since 1987, starting the annual lecture series shortly after the artist died.
Clearly a lot more research could be done on this artist / author, the bits noted here are just the tip of an iceberg. He apparently lived in different places in Canada, may have written more books, and hopefully continued to be an artist.
