Watson, Sheila

Diaries, reading journals and day planners

Series consists of 29 diaries, dated reading journals and day planners created and preserved by Watson during her adult life. These materials contain fragments of her creative writing; drawings in graphite, coloured pencil and ink; reading notes and language exercies; collected ephemera; recordings of her daily activities and financial transactions; and reflections on her experiences, emotions, relationships and surroundings.
In general Watson kept confessional and reflective diaries from 1954/55 to about 1957. When she moved to Toronto in 1956 to persue her doctoral studies, Watson began to keep what can be best described as reading journals, dated notes pertaining to books she was reading interspersed with short diary entries regarding her correspondence, her observations of her surroundings and her academic experiences. After she moved to Edmonton to teach at the University of Alberta, and upon her retirement in Nanaimo, Watson's recorded thoughts become more infrequent. In her later life, Watson appears to have purchased commercial day planners to record her daily activities and financial translations.
It is apparent that Watson kept journals during her early teaching career in Cariboo Country in British Columbia. However, it seems she destroyed these at a later period.

  1. Novels
  2. Short stories
  3. Poetry
  4. Non-fiction

Manuscripts of novels

Sub-series consists of handwritten and typed drafts and manuscripts, metatext and relevant correspondence with editors related to Watson's two published novels, namely "Deep Hollow Creek" and "The Double Hook" and her unfinished unpublished novel "Landscape of the Moon". The files have been arranged by novel and then chronologically.

Notes regarding The Double Hook

File consists of 9 pages containing handwritten notes of biblical quotations, Greek references and mythological descriptions and small fragments of writing that would become "The Double Hook".

Manuscripts of Landscape of the Moon

File consists of 13 pages (two blank) of typed drafts of Watson's unfinished novel "Landscape of the Moon". Includes three distinct sections, all beginnings to the novel.

Manuscripts of short stories

Sub-series consists of handwritten and typed drafts and manuscripts of four of Watson's six published short stories, namely "Brother Oedipus", "Antigone", "The Rumble Seat" and "And the four animals..." and five unpublished short stories, featuring the characters Hania, Oedipus, Eurydice, Orpheus, Daedalus and Aesop, and a fragment of literary prose fictionalizing her experiences in Paris. There is no surviving documentation of Watson's first published short story "Rough Answer", which appeared in The Canadian Forum 18: 212 (September 1938): 178-180, nor "The Black Farm (A Modern Allegory)", which was first published in Queen's Quarterly 63:2 (Summer 1954): 220-228. The files have been arranged chronologically, frequently relying on the publishing dates of the short stories.

Manuscript of Hania short story

File consists of two typed pages of a short story beginning with a quotation from the Gospel of Thomas and featuring a female character Hania. This short story is presumed to be written by Watson as it does not contain any annotations or signatures by her.

Manuscript fragments of unpublished short stories

File consists of the contents of an original file folder containing 26 pages of handwritten and annotated typescripts of what appear to be three short story drafts and research notes, including: one torn sheet of typed material; three four-leaf gatherings of lined paper containing three pages of handwritten prose, and two typed pages of prose, all opening paragraphs for a short story labelled by Watson as "Spaniel caps", featuring the characters Daedalus, Oedipus and Aesop; eight typed and heavily annotated fragments of the opening paragraphs of a short story featuring the characters Uncle Daedalus and Boots; four typed and annotated fragments of the opening two pages of a possible short story featuring the characters Tom Payne Wyatt and Bray. These fragments may be part of Watson's novel "Landscape of the Moon"; one page of handwritten glossary notes in German;and one page containing a typed quotation by Paul Nash.

Manuscript of Brother Oedipus

File consists of a 14 page typescript of "Brother Oedipus" with a title page signed by Watson. This appears to be a final draft that she may have submitted for publication.

Manuscript of one poem

File consists of one typed poem "Dark in my heart of darkness" presumed to be by Watson, containing a ink drawing on the reverse by Wilfred Watson titled "Annual Meet of the Vancouver Branch of the David Society."
