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.
