About this Item

A privately printed autobiography by Wilson who was born in 1913 in Fort William, Ontario. Illustrated with photos and document reproductions. Wilson descended from the Ruttan family (French), the Armstrongs (Irish) and the Wilsons (English). A colorful and eventful life that spans the 20th century. One of Wilson's childhood memories was a trip into the Santa Cruz mountains with his mother - where she took a photo of an old 'Indian Squaw' reclining in front of her tepee. She wrote on the back of the photos "Kalapine - 118 years old - June 29, 1923." The photo is included. Wilson married the Hon. Yvette Latham Baillieu, daughter of Sir Clive Latham Baillieu, 1st Baron Baillieu. This copy INSCRIBED by Wilson "To Pres and Beth- With best wishes, Bob". NEAR FINE, a clean, otherwise unmarked copy in dark blue cloth hardcover binding. Would be 'Fine" but about 12 leaves had corners turned which has left corner creases. All else fine. 6 x 8-1/2"; 88 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 002043
