Miss Peel, like her distinguished brother the 
late Paul Peel, whose gold medal salon picture 
"After the Bath." Is so well known received.
Her art education (was) in Paris.

Students of art, may find it interesting that Mildred (Ross) Peel, seems to have moved to Edmonton with her   husband GW Ross, Its like fitting together pieces of an elaborate jig saw puzzle following her  life.  Note too, that her brother Paul was noted for his painting, 'After the Bath'. Mildred receives scant notice for her artistic skills other then she studied in Paris.
