Narrative: The donor of this collection is Elizabeth Ann (Betty) Chipman Simpson. Her parents are Eugene William Chipman (1 of 3 children - sisters Louise Chipman and Helen Elizabeth Chipman) The donor was named after her Aunt Helen Elizabeth. Her paternal grandfather was Louis William Chipman of Nictaux, Annapolis County. Her mother was Gladys Miller of Granville Ferry, a former Queen Annapolisa. Betty Simpson was employed as a waitress at the Cornwallis Inn in Kentville. While employed there she became friends with Foster and Wanda Gills of Falmouth. The Gills had an elderly neighbor named Georgia Chipman (2nd wife of Harold Chipman). When Georgina passed away, the Gills cleared out her house and all the Chipman material was stored together. The Gills, aware of the shared surname, gave the material to Betty (Chipman) Simpson. This collection is linked to the family of Harold Cassils Chipman, son of John Pryor Chipman (1848-19)
