Jennifer Surridge


Jennifer Surridge is Robertson Davies’ daughter and executor of his literary estate.  She has held various administrative positions including general manager of a small company.  In 1993, Davies asked her if she would work with him as his research assistant.  She became acquainted with his business dealings so after his death in 1995 she was able to form Pendragon Ink with Mrs. Davies to look after his literary legacy.  She has edited and published five collections of her father’s work, and edited Beads in a String, Brenda Davies’ autobiography. “She is the co-editor of A Celtic Temperament: Robertson Davies as Diarist.”
