Scope and content

Creator sketch:
Valentine Carmichael Haynes (21 December, 1875 – 1963?) was the first of many white settlers to be born in Osoyoos. He worked as a rancher all his life and was highly skilled in this area. Haynes married Elizabeth Runnels (d. 1942), niece of Nespelem George, a well-known and respected Aboriginal chief. Runnels was an artist (oil) and interpreter.
One daughter, Alice, married a Thompson.

Subseries consists of documentation of Valentine Haynes and his family, as well as the Okanagan Cattle Company, of which Haynes was the founder, all in the approximate area of Osoyoos, BC at the southern extreme of the Okanagan Valley. Photographs depict ranching scenes, landscapes, and family life; textual materials include banking records, biographical sketches, Okanagan Cattle Company records, and genealogical information.
