Name of creator
Elizabeth Ursula Malkin was born June 6, 1908 in Vancouver. She completed her ATCM in piano in 1928 and from 1930 to 1932 studied in Vienna. Ursula's conception of musical tradition and her interest in contemporary works were determined by her years in Austria. In the 1930s she toured British Columbia and made appearances and broadcasts in Australia. Until 1954 she was frequently a soloist with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. She began teaching in 1945 and continued until the mid-1970s. She was deeply involved in setting up the School of Music at the University of British Columbia, where she completed a B Mus in 1964, and in establishing the Vancouver Academy of Music. From 1949 to 1951 she was president of the Vancouver Women's Musical Club, music committee chairman of the Community Arts Council of Vancouver from 1955 to 1958 and president of the Vancouver Junior Symphony from 1956 to 1958.
She lived with Jean McD Russell from 1945 until her death September 29, 1996.
