Name of creator
Eileen Archer was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on October 8, 1934 to Arthur and Anna Archer. She grew up at 2957 Orillia Street, where she lived for 72 years (1937-2010) until moving to a care facility. She did not marry and had no children. Eileen attended Tillicum Elementary School from 1941-1947; in 2016, framed copies of her photographs were put on display at the school as part of 100th anniversary celebrations. Eileen Archer died on July 8, 2013.
During the clean out of Eileen Archer's home at 2957 Orillia Street in 2010, the photographs in this fonds were thrown in a dumpster outside. A neighbourhood resident recovered them and donated them to Saanich Archives in 2016.
