Terry Reksten Memorial Fund: 2017 Recipients

This year, we had a large number of applications, in part because we advertised the grant on social media and among institutional members of the Archives Association of BC, the BC Historical Federation, and the BC Museums Association. After careful consideration, we awarded grants of $1,000 each to the Simpcw First Nations Archives and the Museum at Campbell River. The Simpcw First Nations Archives, in Barriere, BC, intends to purchase archival supplies that will help to organize and preserve its photograph collection; at Campbell River, the Archives Research Centre at the Museum will utilize the grant to digitize a selection of aural histories that were originally recorded on now-obsolete tapes.

Congratulations to the recipients and thank-you to all who applied!
