Kathleen E. Dalzell
Kathleen Dalzell (1919-2015), the daughter of pioneers on the Charlottes, had grassroots familiarity with her subject. Her lively narrative, extensively researched and laced with "local colour," brought the history of these enchanted islands alive in her three books. She was also instrumental in the creation of both the Skidegate Museum and the Port Clements Museum. In 1998, Betty was awarded the Order of British Columbia in recognition of her efforts to preserve and record the history of the islands. She was the Historical Coordinator of the Port Clements Museum until her death in 2015.
