Scope and content

Series consists of textual records and graphic records including photographs and slides of Dr. Halpin’s activities at the Museum of Anthropology. Included in this series are unlabelled photographs of a staff retreat, Halpin giving tours at the Museum of Anthropology, slides of MOA, visible storage, artifacts, and NWC objects found in displays and museums across Canada, the United States and Europe. Also included are personal photographs of Halpin and of her dog “Cammy” who frequently joined Halpin at the museum. Textual records in this series include a bibliography by Ron Hamilton on “18th Century Northwest Coast Explorers Observations-Early Collection and Maritime Fur Trade” and printed out CD-Rom templates for “A Century of Indian Art.”

Notes area

Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition


The slides found in this series were received in binders created by Halpin and processed after the textual records in the fonds were arranged and described. The binders contained a mixed theme of slides ranging from personal trip images to images of artifacts in the MOA collection and events at the museum. In order to preserve the integrity of the author’s original order, it was decided that the slides in each binder should remain together, even though many relate to textual records throughout the fonds. Thus, the slides have been placed in this series and their arrangement in new file folders reflects the original grouping of the slides by Halpin.
