Name of creator
The Dorothy Shoemaker Literary Award Contest was created in 1972 by the Kitchener Public Library Board to recognize the creative writing of children, adolescents, and adults. The contest is run annually. The Kitchener Public Library Board named the contest after Dorothy Shoemaker. Ms. Shoemaker was born in 1906 and was chief librarian of the Kitchener Public Library from 1944 to 1971, president of the Ontario Library Association, president of the Kitchener-Waterloo Branch of the Canadian Federation of University Women, and member of the Kitchener Waterloo Art Board. In July 1996, the Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation received an anonymous gift of an endowment fund, to administer on behalf of the contest.
The Kitchener Public Library had unbroken custody of these records before donating to the Guelph Public Library Archives.
