Katherine Laura Stoddard was born on June 16, 1927 in Wileville, Lunenburg County. Her parents were Clarence Simon Stoddard and Eva Kathryn Siteman who was the daughter of Charles Edward Siteman and Jessie (Robson) Siteman of Ship Harbour. Katherine grew up in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia and later lived in Hantsport. Like her mother, Katherine worked as a school teacher but was also very active in genealogy. She never married and lives in the Windsor Elms seniors’ home in Windsor, Nova Scotia.
Katherine’s father, Clarence Stoddard, was the son of Robert Jamison Stoddard, originally of Clam Harbour, and Harriet “Edith” Ritcey of Musquodoboit Harbour. Robert Jamison was the son of Thomas Stoddard and Elizabeth Eisan of Clam Harbour. Thomas was a ship captain and died in 1858. Thomas’s grandfather, also Thomas Stoddard (b. before 1740) had come to Nova Scotia from Scotland c. 1760.

Portée et contenu
Series forms part of Katherine L. Stoddard fonds and consists primarily of letters written to Katherine Stoddard by various correspondents between 1978 and 1998, including Robert Ritcey, Robert Kim Stevens, and others.

Series also contains two letters from the First World War addressed to Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Stoddard concerning their son Private F. T. Stoddard. There is also a note from the Mercantile Marine Office concerning the wages of Robert Stoddard and dated 1882. The series also contains letters to Katherine’s mother, Eva Stoddard, from Annabel (likely Annabel Siteman); a letter to Lena from a Ritcey, and a letter to Bob Stoddard from his brother Thomas dated 1927. Series also includes several letters written to and by Robert Ritcey concerning the development of Martinique Beach as a National Park, letters from the Department of Tourism and Culture, a letter from the Department of Education concerning a gift agreement for a donation to the Nova Scotia Museum, and a letter from the Church Conservancy of Nova Scotia.
