Biography: Harold Mortimer-Lamb Canadian, b. England, 1872-1970Born in Weatherhead, England, Harold Mortimer-Lamb immigrated to Victoria, British Columbia, in 1889. He worked as an editor for several Canadian newspapers before becoming editor (and then managing director) of the B.C. Mining Record in 1896. His interest in photography probably began around this time, and in 1904 he contributed an article on "Pictorial Photography in B.C." to Photograms of the Year, which also published one of his platinum prints. Thefollowing year Mortimer-Lamb moved to Montreal to serve as secretary of the Canadian Mining Institute and editor of the Canadian Mining Review. In 1907 he participated in the important Photo-Club of Canada exhibition in Montreal and in 1910 was elected tomembership in the Royal Photographic Society. Two years later one of his images was reproduced in Alfred Stieglitz's prestigious journal, Camera Work (July 1912). Mortimer-Lamb's interest in photography continued until the mid to late 1940s, after whichhe turned to painting. M.M.
