Ruth Wilson (née Wix) was born on 28 Nov 1898 at Richmond (Nelson) where she grew up as one of seven children. She spent most of her life as a teacher, usually as a sole-charge teacher in country schools. Just prior to retirement she was involved in teacher training at the Wellington College of Education. In 1939 she used a small inheritance to travel to Europe, bicycling more than 3500 miles around Great Britain. She lived in Lower Hutt until Jan 1982 when, at age 84, she married 91-year-old Alexander Wilson, returning to live with him in Oamaru. She encouraged him to record his reminiscences also and these are part of the collection. On the death of her husband she returned to live in Lower Hutt, where she died in Mar 1993.
