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
- ca. 1982 - 1996
Subseries consists of records related to Miriam Clavir’s involvement (which was primarily consultative and/or advisory) with exhibits and exhibition planning. Some records focus on conservation issues, while others include exhibit proposals and planning records. The exhibits include: “The Third Eye,” “Fluff and Feathers,” the “Coat of Many Colours,” “Ancient Cloth…Ancient Code,” “Multiplicity,” “Bob Boyer: A Blanket Statement and the “Open House Conservation Exhibit.” Other records relate to a paper loan from MOA to the Vancouver Paper Fair.
Also included in this subseries are funding proposals relating to two further exhibits (one of which Clavir was proposed to curate), as well as general exhibit information relating to an assessment of the Museum’s exhibits in the form of visitor studies.
The records in this subseries include: correspondence, memoranda, computer printouts (drafts) of exhibit proposals, committee meeting notes (on exhibit and public programming), budget summaries, conservation notes, brochures, packing & crate lists, artifact lists, photocopies of images taken of display items, exhibit planning notes, display drawings, contact sheets (with images of display cases and artifacts), case labels, and visitor study reports.
Series consists of Conservation records that cannot be attributed to a specific member of the Conservation staff. There are currently only two files in this series. As of 2017, the majority of Conservation records in the archives came from Conservator Miriam Clavir. These records can be found in the Miram Clavir series of the Conservation sous-fonds.
