Subseries contains images mostly taken by McLennan that show the Bill Reid pole which sat outside the Museum of Anthropology at UBC being taken down and moved inside the museum because it was no longer stable due to weathering. This spurred a project funded with a Canada Council grant to then create a new pole to put up in its place. This pole was carved by Jim Hart and called the Respect to Bill Reid pole.
Subseries contain the images used in the booklet Robes of Power: Totem Poles on Cloth written by Doreen Jensen and Polly Sargent, as well as a copy of the booklet. In addition, there are images of a children's workshop that took place during the exhibit at the Museum of Anthropology.
Subseries consists of records collected or created by Don Bain during the course of his Massive Carvings Documentation Project. This project took place in the early to mid 1990s. The Massive Carvings Documentation Project was intended to compile information directly related to the poles and massive carvings in the Museum of Anthropology (MOA) collection into a set of Totem Pole Files. The Totem Pole Files were intended to be accessible to MOA staff, volunteers, students, and the general public. The subseries is divided into two sub subseries:
a. Totem pole files
b. Working files
