Biographical history

Kuldip Gill was born in the Punjab, India in 1943. She immigrated to Canada as a child and grew up in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia. After working in resource industries, she obtained an M.A. in social anthropology in 1982 from the University of British Columbia with a thesis entitled: A Canadian Sikh Wedding as a Cultural Performance. Her Ph.D., also at UBC was granted in 1988. Her thesis is entitled: Health Strategies of Indo-Fijian Women in the Context of Fiji. Gill taught at UBC, Simon Fraser University and at Open Learning Canada in Burnaby, B.C. Her last book of poetry, Valley Sutra, was completed several months before her death in 2009.

Custodial history

The material was maintained by Gill’s widower, Jim McIntosh, until it was acquired by Simon Fraser University Library Special Collections and Rare Books in 2009. McIntosh added some material pertaining to Gill’s death and the posthumous publication of her book, Valley Sutra.
