Name of creator
Helen Arnell was born Helen Dorothy Adams Armitage in 1891 in St. Catherines, Ontario. In 1898 she moved with her family to Halifax, Nova Scotia, where her father, William James Armitage, was rector of St. Paul's Church and later Archdeadon of Halifax. She was educated at the Halifax Academy and entered Dalhousie University in 1907, graduating with her BA in 1911. In 1917 she married Kenneth Carstairs Arnell, with whom she moved to Bermuda, where she had at least two children and spent the remainder of her life.
Scrapbook was donated by Helen Arnell's son, John Carstairs Arnell, in 1980; he donated her BA diploma in 1997.
