A Coat of Many Colours: Two Centuries of Jewish Life in Canada
  • September 6 - November 17, 1991 (Gallery 5). The history of the Jewish experience in Canada was brought to life with 300 objects, from the common to the extraordinary, and the personal stories of individuals, from the famous to the unknown. The exhibition explored relations between Jews and non-Jews in Canada-relations that have been touchingly warm and disturbingly harsh. By mirroring the experiences of other ethnic and cultural communities in Canada, “A Coat of Many Colours” offered visitors a very timely understanding of the strengths of our national cloth.

Use for: Untitled, British Columbia Totem Pole Preservation Committee, BC Totem Pole Preservation Committee

  • The B.C. Totem Pole Preservation Committee was set up in 1953 by members of MOA, UBC's Department of Anthropology, and the BC Provincial Museum, with support from the lumber and fishing industries. Their aim was to survey existing poles of the province, and to acquire and preserve all those not in use. H.R. MacMillan and W.C. Koerner supported the purchase and transportation of the poles which were brought to Vancouver and Victoria from coastal villages.
