Scope and content
The APEC collection was established in 1997 when the Museum of Anthropology (MOA) hired two students, Todd Tubutis and Maria Roth. These two students were supervised by Director and Professor Ruth B. Phillips, and instructed to gather information in a variety of formats that would serve to represent the events of the 1997 APEC Leaders Meeting at MOA. These materials, in addition to their archival value, were to be used in a public exhibition at the museum and for other museum educational projects.
The collection consists of materials gathered by Todd Tubutis and Maria Roth in 1997 and 1998. These two students were hired to gather information in a variety of formats that would serve to represent the events of the 1997 APEC Leaders’ Meeting at the Museum. These records consist of textual materials, sound recordings, photographs, posters and banners, and physical artifacts. The records include: photographs of the Museum of Anthropology in preparation for the Leaders’ Meeting and protests against APEC at UBC and throughout Vancouver; posters and banners collected at protests at UBC and the Museum of Anthropology; radio broadcast recordings from UBC campus radio (CITR) on the day of the APEC Leaders’ Meeting and heavy student protesting; official APEC paraphernalia (both textual and graphic); textual records of the impact APEC had at the Museum of Anthropology; newspaper and journal articles concerning the APEC Leaders’ Meeting at the Museum of Anthropology; press releases from protest groups, the Prime Minister’s Office, and APEC; concerns of the Musqueam Nation regarding APEC; and coverage of the APEC Leaders’ Meeting in U.S. newspapers.
The collection has been organized into the following series and sub-series:
Series 1: APEC textual records
Sub-Series A: Official APEC publications
Sub-Series B: APEC material from other sources
