Claiming to be himself a halfbreed, in 1910 he married an Ojibwa, Angele Eguena. For many years, he earned a living as a trapper, guide and fireranger in the Temagami and Algoma districts. He went overseas with the Canadian Army in 1915 and was wounded in the war. During his convalescence in England, he married a childhood friend, Ivy Holmes, in 1917. Soon after, Belaney returned to Canada, where he began to call himself Grey Owl and to assume Indian dress and customs. He married an Iroquois, Anahareo, who persuaded him to give up trapping and to raise beavers. Grey Owl subsequently became an ardent conservationist. The books and articles he wrote, such as Pilgrims of the Wild and The Adventures of Sajo and her beaver people, made him famous throughout Canada. He undertook two successful lecture tours of Great Britain in 1935 and 1937. In 1938, he died in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, where he had lived intermittently since 1931.Instrument de recherche :Information additionnelle :Note générale :The original material in the series Grey Owl Notebooks, Grey Owl Correspondence, Clippings, Anahareo Material, and Somervell Collection has been photocopied and the originals removed from circulation.
