Margaret “Peggy” Josephine Kennedy nee Reid (1921-2013) was born in Hyder, Alaska to American William Ronald Reid Sr., of Scottish-German descent, and Sophie Gladstone from the Kaadaas gaah Kiiguwaay, Raven/Wolf Clan [Haida]. Her father managed hotels in Alaska and Victoria. The family travelled between the two for a number of years before moving permanently to Canada when she was 11-years-old. In 1939, Peggy started two years of school at Victoria College, then moved to Vancouver to attend the University of British Columbia. In the third year of WWII she began to work at Boeing Aircraft sub-plant on Georgia Street as a stores clerk, then secretary to the foreman. Peggy became involved in the International Association of Machinists (IAM) as a rank and file member and began to write for the newspaper. She became a steward secretary for the union and editor of the paper. Peggy was married in 1945 to Melvin Kennedy (1908-1982) and had two children. She subsequently lived in England for ten years, received a PhD in Psychology from the University of London, and worked in public health in England and B.C. In later years Peggy made many trips to Haida Gwaii and was an active supporter of the artistic career of her brother, Bill Reid.
