Wanted: Photographs by Geraldine Moodie and other Canadian photographers

Geraldine Moodie took photographs of scenes on the Canadian Prairies in the late 1880's. She accompanied her husband to the arctic and lived there from 1906-1909.

I am trying to build up a collection of her photographs in the form of any vintage photographic prints,  lantern slides, or her writings, watercolours, as well as any papers, documents and related materials associated with her life.

Although she is relatively unknown to collectors, she had a keen eye and a good sense of composition.
See below for a photographs she took while she was in the arctic.

I also collect vintage photographs by noted Canadian photographers such as:  Richard and Hanna Maynard, Carlo Gentile, Bailey, Steele, Daly, William Notman, and many others.

Photo possibly by Frederick Dally although sometimes attributed to Carlo Gentile
