Maud Lampman: First Woman Appointed to Work on Parliament Hill

Evening Series
LAC PA-009262 William James Topley

Guest Speakers

Dianne Brydon, M.A., Parliamentary Public Programs Manager (retired), Library of Parliament


Emma Maud (Playter) Lampman came from a privileged background and was married young to "Confederation Poet" Archibald Lampman. When, at 32, Maud suffered the tragic loss of her husband and infant son, the young widow was forced to find employment to provide for herself and her two surviving children. Maud's story illustrates what it was like to be among the first women to work in Canada's civil service at the turn of the 20th century.

This speaker series will take place via Zoom. All are welcome to attend without charge.
