Date Range
2019-2020
Scope and Content
File contains two catalogs of the "Curiouser & Curiouser" exhibit in the Cortes Island Museum, 2019/2020, curated by Christian Gronau. Modelled loosely on the fabled cabinets, boxes, rooms and chambers of the Renaissance, this exhibition was an invitation to reawaken the unreserved and almost childlike interest and curiosity of age when Europeans shook off the shadows of the Dark Ages and awoke to the fascination of the external world. When people of intellect and time to spare went (for better and for worse) in search of adventure, discovery and illumination, to all the corners of the Earth. They came back with stories full of wonder and brought back specimens full of mystery and promise. Their curiosity changed forever the ways in which humans look upon the world.

Frederic (Fred) Vernon Vosper (1935-2016) was born in Vancouver BC and grew up on the coast, always around boats and water.

The Vospers lived in Cortes Bay from 1975 to 1982, and returned to Cortes in 1990, after Fred retired.

Description Level
Series
Material Type
textual records (electronic)
Date Range
2022
Scope and Content
Series consists of family trees of Cortes Island settler families, with notes on related people and events. These trees are intended to help identify links between families on Cortes. Sources include online databases (e.g. Family Search.org, Ancestry.com and Canada Archives), CIMAS Archives and Information files, interviews and correspondence with family members. Families researched include: Aldrich; Barrett; Carr & Marflett; Froud; Hayes, Ashford and Griffin; Heay; Manson; Marquette; Middleton; Nichols; Petznick; Smith; Tiber. The family trees and notes are kept in a binder labelled "Cortes Family Trees Project", located above the public access computer in the May Ellingsen Archives Room. Files are not available online due to privacy concerns. We acknowledge that these trees are of white settler families and reflect colonization of ancestral homelands and displacement of the Indigenous Peoples who have thrived here for generations. We would welcome the opportunity to add those families to our records.
