Biographical history

Anne Angus (nee Anderson) was born in Diyarbaker, Asia Minor. In 1909, her father retired with his family to the Kettle Valley in British Columbia to grow fruit. Anne Anderson eventually moved to Vancouver. In 1923, she graduated from the University of British Columbia. The following year, she married Professor Henry Forbes Angus. She was a board member of the Vancouver Children's Aid Society (1940-1941 and 1945-1952) and was a prominent member of the Community Chest and Council of Greater Vancouver as well as founding member of the Children's Foundation. From 1952 to 1958, she was a member of the local Board of School Trustees, the last two years as Chairman. In 1951, she produced a history of the Children's Aid Society, The Children's Aid Society of Vancouver, 1901-1951.
