Name of creator
Viola Pearl Coulter was born 22 February 1908, the daughter of Miami, Manitoba pioneers John and Mary Park Coulter. After graduating from Miami Collegiate in 1925 and the University of Manitoba in 1930, she served as a dietician at the United Church Residential Schools in Smokey lake, Alberta and Norway House, Manitoba. Viola married a fellow Agricultural College student, Donald Munro McLean in 1935 and they had two daughters. Viola was an active member of Augustine United Church since 1935 as well as a committed supporter of the University Women's Club and the Dugald Costume Museum (to which she donated a large number of artefacts) and several other volunteer groups.
The items described here were donated to the Costume Museum of Canada following Viola's death in 1998 by Viola McLean's daughter, Gayle Tsou of Ottawa.

Items consist of 8 colour photographic images as well as a number of documentary items pertaining to Viola's death in December of 1997 and subsequent memorial service in February of 1998. Three of the photographs depict Viola wearing items of clothing donated to the Costume Museum.
