Collections Care, Management and Access fonds

  • 133
  • Archief
  • 1948 - 2014

Fonds consists of records generated by the Collections Care, Management (CCMA) department at the Museum of Anthropology. These records include administrative records and planning material that document the work of the three units within CCMA: Collections, Conservation, and the Audrey & Harry Hawthorn Library and Archives. Record types include policies, loan documentation, acquisition documentation, object evaluations and photographs, conservation notes, teaching and special project files, exhibit planning material, correspondence, budget reports, and meeting minutes.

The fonds is divided into four sous-fonds, one for each of the three units within CCMA, as well as a sous-fonds for general CCMA administrative records:

  1. Collections
  2. Conservation
  3. Audrey & Harry Hawthorn Library and Archives
  4. CCMA Administration

Because of changes to the organization of MOA over the years, there are some overlaps in these functions, especially with older material. For example, there are likely some records relevant to conservation in the Collections sous-fonds and vice-versa.

Vickie Jensen and Jay Powell

  • 3
  • Archief
  • 1969-2008

Fonds consists of records relating to the numerous culture and language projects that Powell and Jensen worked on since 1976. The communities with which they worked include:
• The Quileute of La Push
• The Kwakwaka’wakw of Alert Bay
• The Gitksan of Kispiox, Gitanyow, and surrounding villages
• The Nuu-chah-nulth of Vancouver Island
• The Musqueam of Vancouver
• The Seton Lake St'at'imc (Lillooet) of Shalalth
• The Shuswap of Alkali Lake, Soda Creek, Dog Creek, Canim Lake, and Sugar Cane
• The Haisla of Kitamaat
• The Nisga’a of Gingolx (Kincolith) and New Aiyansh

Most of the projects had an end goal to produce a book, language education materials, or teacher training materials.  Often the education materials incorporated cultural lessons throughout.  The records created in the production of the books are varied and reflect the intrinsic connection between language, culture, and daily activities in the communities. Powell and Jensen were co-editors for nearly all of the language books and materials produced.  Although some of the projects reflected in the records were done primarily by Powell or primarily by Jensen, the vast majority of the work involves collaboration between the two in some aspect.  As Jensen and Powell immersed themselves in the communities they worked for, often their personal photographs and records are interspersed with those relating to their work.  This community involvement enhanced their relationships with the people with whom they were working and allowed them to experience and participate in cultural activities as part of those communities.  This close relationship is reflected in and is integral to their work.  Jensen and Powell have two sons: Nels, born in 1978, and Luke, born in 1981.  Their sons travelled with them to the communities in which they worked and lived, and on their work trips and sabbaticals.  Nels and Luke are also present in many of the photographic records.

The records contain a mixture of research, field notes, administrative records, and publications at various stages, in addition to audio and visual records. Field notes, for the most part handwritten, and archival research into language and culture groups was undertaken by Powell, whilst the majority of the photography, found in a variety of formats, was done by Jensen. Manuscripts and final publications were a combined effort and are included at various stages. Administrative records, including grant proposals, are found throughout.

Fonds consists of 13 series of records. Series are arranged according to community and/or project, and include:

1. Quileute
2. Chinook Jargon
3. Kwak’wala (U’Mista)
4. Gitksan
5. Nuu-chah-nulth
6. Salishan
7. Shuswap
8. Haisla
9. Tait
10. Northwest Coast artists
11. Northwest Coast groups
12. UBC totems/events
13. Publications

James Davidson collection

  • 16
  • Collectie
  • 1894-1902

Collection consists of Japanese hand-coloured glass lantern slides collected by James Davidson in Formosa (present day Taiwan), and possibly also in Japan, between 1894 and 1902. Davidson used these slides for his lectures. All the photographs except 10 belong to the genre known as souvenir photography. The subject of these photographs in this collection echoed those found in the Japanese ukiyo-e prints of the so-called “floating-world” of the late Edo Period, from around 1780 until the 1860s. The delicate hand colouring of the albumen silver prints is one of the characteristics of photographs of Japan from this period.
