Beatrice Redpath (1886-1937) was a Canadian poet and short story writer. Born into a prosperous middle class family she attended private schools in Montreal. Reportedly, she was a very good looking young woman who caught the eye of William Redpath, son of the prominent Redpath sugar family. They married in 1910 and had one son. Beatrice started writing shortly after her marriage and produced two books of poetry. She also wrote about 60 short stories which were published in magazines such as Canadian Magazine, Chatelaine, and MacLean’s.
