Scope and content
Frank Hunter was born ca. 1909 in Garneil, Montana, and immigrated with his parents to Saskatchewan when he was two or three years old. As a young man he ventured into the Peace River country of northern British Columbia. He married his wife, Doreen Hunter, in 1951 in Baldonnel, BC. They had two children, Frank Jr. and Barbara.
Frank Hunter worked as a farmer upon his arrival in the Peace, and later on as a railroad surveyor and served as a school trustee during the 1950s.
Frank Hunter was deceased prior to acquisition of his collection by UBCO-OSC in 2015, but the date of death is unclear.
Subseries consists of Hunter family photographs captured from about 1927 through the 1940s, as well as supporting textual reference materials. Photographs were taken by a Kodak Brownie box camera, which was a luxury and a rarity during that time period. Photographs depict images of landscapes, infrastructure (bridges and railroads), agriculture, rodeo, and pioneer family life in the Peace River region of British Columbia. Also includes a small subset of 35mm negative strips and 15cm x 13 cm photographic prints dated to 1992, taken by Sandy Baker, and documenting the same geographical area.
Subseries is currently arranged into one album.
