Name of creator
Bea Millar worked for B.C. Hydro in the 1960s and 1970s as a Home Service Consultant. In this capacity, she was responsible for coordinating the company's customer information television and radio broadcast appearances. Millar was a onetime chairman of the British Columbia Home Economists in Business Association and a guest speaker at numerous conferences across the country on home economics.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of subject files, office files, printed material, videos, photographs, and slides relating to home economic topics such as cooking and kitchen and laundry planning presented by Beatrice Millar on behalf of the British Columbia Hydro Home Service Centre. Photographs consist of slides used in the BC Hydro home economics program, publication production photographs, as well as photographs of BC Hydro and Beatrice Millar in a television studio.
Immediate source of acquisition
The original donation made by Beatrice Millar has been split. Published books in her collection have been catalogued individually under Beatrice Millar fonds.
An additional 85 cm of ephemera has been extracted and has a separate inventory list available at TX145 .B38 1911 and are not included in this archival description nor in the physical specs of the fonds.
The numbering of boxes in this fonds reflects that materials have been removed to be made accessible elsewhere. Consequently, the numbering of the boxes runs from 1 through 4, and then skips to 15. The lack of boxes 5 through 14 is accounted for in the associated ephemera finding aid, and in the individually catalogued titles. Resultantly, the new material from the 2018 accrual begins at box 16.
