Vancouver School of Art - 1935 Summer Camp List of Attendees


The following list of 1935 attendees (students and chaperones) at the Vancouver School of Art summer sketching camp on Savary Island was provided by Walter O. Volovsek, Castlegar B.C., courtesy of the Lilette Mahon Papers. Attendees created a daily broadsheet called The Savary Pudding (various spellings). Sheets of 12" x 18" sketchbook paper were filled with gossip, jokes, cartoons, riddles, poems, weather reports, comings and goings, and numerous full page drawings and paintings. Once completed, they were tacked up on the wall of the Royal Savary Hotel for display and comment.
