Name of creator
Helen Agnes Kelly was born June 11, 1895 in Halifax. She was the 10th of 11 children born to John F. and Mary Kelly. Her father was the founder of Kelly's Ltd. and former Deputy Mayor of the City of Halifax. Helen Agnes was a student at St. Patrick's school before coming to Mount Saint Vincent Academy in 1913. She graduated from the Mount in 1916. She was later a president of the Alumnae Association of Mount Saint Vincent from 1930 to 1932.
During her time at the Academy, she was known among her peers as a gifted student of theology and won a good medal in this discipline in 1915. She was proficient in gymnasium work and was particularly talented during debates, her friends describing her as knowledgeable on many topics and able to express herself clearly and accurately.
Helen passed away on January 29, 1972 in Halifax.
The photos belonged to Helen Agnes Cormier (née Kelly) and were passed on to her son, and later her grandson. They were donated to the Mount in 2022.
