BC Pavillion in Seville

Subseries consists of correspondence and accompanying documentation regarding the creation and installation of northwest coast art at the British Columbia pavilion as part of the Canada pavilion in Seville, Spain in 1992 as part of the Universal Expo of Seville (Expo ’92).

Before the melting pot

Subseries consists of copies of prints and negatives from museums around the world depicting indigenous peoples in Victorian portraiture style photographs during the turn of the 20th century. McLennan acquired these copies with the intention of proposing an exhibit which never materialized. There is also a file of accompanying documentation including correspondence regarding the loans of photographs and other research materials.

Culture photographs

Subseries contains binders of copies of images that McLennan has ordered, and some cases paid for, from other institutions, in addition to some that he has taken himself. He has arranged them in binders according to culture. He created these binders as an easy reference system for faculty, students, community members, and artists to use when identifying and comparing cultural artistic styles, and traditional customs. First Nations included in the culture photographs include: Tsimshian, Haisla, Kwakwaka’wakw, Northern First Nations, Ktunaxa, Kinbasket, Okanagan, Salish, Tlingit, Tahltan, Tsilhqot’in, Secwepemc, Stl’atl’lmx, Nlaka’pamux, Heiltsuk, Nuxalk, Oweekeno, Gitxsan, Haida, Nuu-chah-nulth and Nisga’a. A file also pertains to differentiating between different styles of canoes.
