Name of creator
Raymond Knister was born in Essex County, Ontario in 1900. Knister devoted his life to writing. However, before fully establishing his name in the literary world, he met with an unfortunate and untimely death at Stoney Point, on Lake Saint Clair, in a drowning accident in 1932. He was the author of a novel entitled White Narcissus (1929) and of a prize novel My Star Predominant, which was published posthumously in 1934. He also edited a volume of short stories in 1928 and a volume of his collected poems with a memoir by Dorothy Livesay, also published posthumously in 1949.
The fonds was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections in 1981 by David Arnason. The photocopies were made by the Victoria University Library in Toronto, Ontario.
Scope and content
The fonds contains photocopies of six short stories by Raymond Knister: "Peaches, Peaches", "The First Day of Spring", "Grapes", "Horace the Haymow", "Indian Summer", and "Hackman's Night".
