Her credits include North West Company in Rebellion: Simon McGillivray's Fort William Notebook, 1815 (Thunder Bay Historical Museum Society, 1988, reprint 1997) and numerous articles and reviews on the fur trade and local labour history in The Canadian Encyclopedia, the Dictionary of Canadian Biography, the Thunder Bay Historical Society's annual Papers and Records, The Beaver and Families (Ontario Genealogical Society).

Besides her church and political activities, she takes time to savour Lake Superior's grandeur and Northwestern Ontario's wilderness. Married to Ken Morrison, she is proud of her three grown daughters, one granddaughter and three grandsons.
