What I have is an almost continuous dialogue from 1945 to 1949. I felt that glimpses into his personal life and struggles could be of interest to museums and collectors of Eduard Wiiralt as well as to students of art in general and as such should be free to reach the maximum audience.

About The Author

Ms. Marje Mölder Published Author

Marje Mölder Owens was born in 1945 in Stockholm, Sweden to Estonian parents who had fled Russian occupation. Her father, Voldemar J. Mölder, was a merchant marine and a well-known philatelist dealing in stamps, revenues, covers and antique postcards. His constant love of travel led to his family living all over France including Paris.

This was followed by immigration to Canada in 1951. There, they lived in Toronto and took in other Estonian refugees. After 4 years, they moved to Victoria, British Columbia where she resides today. Her father died in 1963. She attended the University of Victoria and obtained her BSc. and MSc. in botanical studies. She was a research assistant for 15 years before retiring to have 2 sons, Brent Owens and Sean Owens.

After her mother Linda Kann Mölder died in 1987, she inherited all of Eduard Wiiralt's graphic art works, letters, postcards and doodles. She also inherited her father's philatelic collections. Her next project involves cataloguing antique postcards covering Estonian true- photo cards, stamps, balloon, dirigible and biplane. She still has two cousins living in Estonia.

Marje Mölder Owens lives in Canada near Victoria on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
