Notice biographique

Edith Bickerton Williams, known to all as "Bud", was born in Toronto on 24 June, 1899. She was educated for ten years at a "Glen Mawr", a private school for girls run by a Miss Veal. She entered University College as an Arts student in the fall of 1916, but did not find the program much to her liking and failed second year. About 1925 she went to Britain to work in a bank. Her mother tried to persuade her to stay but she returned to Canada in 1927. At some point in the 1920s she was diagnosed with a mild case of tuberculosis. Subsequently, she raised poultry at Aurora for ten years before deciding to attend the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph. She graduated in 1941, the second woman in Ontario to do so. She then set up her own practice at 675 St. Clair Avenue West in Toronto.

A warm-hearted, outgoing woman, Bud loved all animals, and early on developed a passion for mountain climbing.

At the end of December, 1976, she suffered a severe stroke and made only a partial recovery, never leaving hospital for long. In 1979 she had two more, and on 24 November she died.

While Frieda Fraser was still a child, she met Bud and they became friends though they attended different schools. Once they were both in university, their friendship blossomed into a relationship that lasted until Bud's death. They were not "out" in the convention of the lesbian/gay liberation era, but they made no attempt to hide their affection for each other. The outpouring of support while Bud lay bedridden in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Toronto indicated how well they had become accepted by a wide circle of friends and colleagues.
