Elsie Hadden Mole
Elsie Hadden Mole is a retired school teacher who spends most of her time writing. She keeps extensive journals, writes newspaper articles and has written and illustrated several books for children. She is a former curator of the St Joseph Island Museum and is co-author of several local histories, most recently Dear Home Folks, a collection of letters written in the 1930s by her aunt, Winnifred Hadden; and St. Joseph Island Images of the Past, a pictorial regional history with Jackileen R. Rains. Mole lives on St Joseph Island, which lies in the St Mary’s River just south of Sault Ste Marie. She enjoys life on a farm that has been in the family for nearly a century. She calls it Pudding Stone Hill, after the colourful jasper conglomerate stone prevalent in the area. With her sheltie, Dougal, and her farm cat, Daphne, she regularly walks over Pudding Stone Hill summer and winter.
