Aboriginal Cultural Stewardship Program (ACSP)

Sub subseries consists of records related to Clavir’s participation in the Aboriginal Cultural Stewardship Program which was developed for Aboriginal people from B.C. to receive training in different cultural centres. Clavir served on the Advisory Committee for the AC Stewardship Program and ran the Conservation section of the program at the Museum of Anthropology. The records include correspondence, a summary report of the program and its participants, and a module outlining the museum’s coverage under the Program.

General Teaching Records

Sub subseries consists of records related to courses taught by Clavir at the Museum of Anthropology such as those for the Centre for Continuing Education, guidelines and applications for internship funding through the Teaching Enhancement Fund, and syllabi (1991-2001) for ANTH 431, a course she taught from 1991-1992. Records include course outlines, teaching notes, memoranda, applications and conservation forms.

Museum Assistance Programme (MAP)

Sub subseries consists of records related to Clavir’s training of conservation interns at the Museum of Anthropology. Much of the funding for internships came from the Museum Assistance Programme (MAP) which was established by the former National Museums of Canada (currently supported by the Department of Canadian Heritage). The sub subseries also includes records related to a search for funding through MAP and provincial government sources for a new conservator position, the establishment of a laboratory conservator position (1993), as well as student reports on internships sponsored by both MAP and the Getty Conservation Institute.

Included are: correspondence, memoranda, reports, application forms, cost summaries, funding contracts, handwritten notes, and one published discussion paper to help develop policy for conservation assistance through the Museum Assistance Programme.

Totem pole files

Sub subseries contains the Totem Pole Files, as put together by Don Bain. Material in the Totem Pole Files was compiled by Don Bain from the MOA Archives, UBC Special Collections, UBC Library, the Royal British Columbia Museum, the British Columbia Archives, and the Department of Indian Affairs, as well as information from MOA staff. Record types include photocopies of photographs, catalogues, accession files, research files, technical files, historical correspondence, internal memos and reports, and committee meeting minutes. Most records collected by Don Bain date from between 1920 and 1980.

Visible Storage

Sub subseries consists of records related to Clavir’s involvement with the visible storage area of the museum, predominantly from a conservation perspective. Most files relate to a new case in the Kwakwaka’wakw area, as it was the end result of a plan to upgrade the entire visible storage area.

Included are: copies of early articles and reports, grant and architect proposals, staff meeting minutes, photographs, and development & working files.
