Historique de la conservation

From 1959-1972 the records were in the custody of Wilson Duff, but at some point before his death he gave the files to Marjorie Halpin (likely around the time she was working on her UBC dissertation on Tsimshian crests – completed in 1973). Halpin controlled access to the Tsimshian files until her death in 2000.

Portée et contenu

Research notes compiled by Wilson Duff during his work on the Barbeau/Beynon material held at the National Museum of Canada (now Canadian Museum of History). This research, focused specifically on the Tsimshian culture, includes correspondence addressed to and/or written by Duff, files relating to the Nishga Land Claim of which Duff was involved as a witness, and typed manuscripts.
