Forest History Archival Digitization Projects Announced

Congratulations to the Campbell River District Museum and Archives Society, and theLadysmith Archives.

Both have won grants from the BC History Digitization program, which promotes increased access to the province’s historical resources by providing matching funds to undertake digitization projects. The result? Free online access to material of interest to forest historians!

The Ladysmith Archives will continue work started in 2008 to digitize Ray Knight’s historical photographs of Ladysmith, including images of early logging equipment, trains, the coal mine, stores, hotels, and shipping wharves.

The Campbell River District Museum and Archives Society will digitize a selection of images related to the history of the unique logging sites and methods in the Northern Vancouver Island region of BC.
