传纪历史

Doug Cox is a writer and historian who wrote thirteen books on Okanagan history. His publishing house, Skookum Publications in Penticton BC, published his works as well as others, and was active from 1977 to 2008.

保管历史

Doug Cox acquired custody of collected materials (or copies thereof) beginning in the 1970s while he was living on the road leading to Apex Mountain, near Penticton B.C. Over time, his developing interest in the history of the Okanagan and Similkameen led him to develop a network of contacts that allowed him access to the original owners and custodians of his photograph and manuscript Collections. His reputation as an historian attracted unsolicited donations as well. (Source: Cox, May 25 2015).
Many of the collected photos were copied to negative film. The status and location of the originals is largely unknown. Where reasonable, lines of discernable provenance are reflected in subseries within Series 3: Research materials.

范围和内容

Collection consists of the documentation of Cox’s career as an historian and author. The collection is comprised predominantly of photographic material. There are approximately 15,000 unique photographic images: prints in various standard dimensions (8"x10", 5"x7", 4"x6" and smaller, with some custom dimensions, predominantly in black and white; slide transparencies in black and white and colour; negatives, (120, 35mm, and 4”x5”) in black and white; digital photographs in black and white and colour contained on CDs and one hard drive.
Photographic coverage extends from ca.1870 to approximately 2008, with the period 1900-1970s predominant. Original photographs by Doug Cox cover the 1970s through approximately 2008. A significant proportion of photographs not attributed to Cox are copies. Many are reciprocally described via resources available via Okanagan Archives Trust Society.
The collection also includes audio cassettes containing interviews recorded in the 1980s and 1990s with associated transcriptions by Joyce Cox. Government documents (primarily Province of British Columbia, c. 1910-1960s) include topographical maps, tree farm license maps, mineral claims maps, taxation records, forestry examination sketches and other records.

整理

The collection was first arranged in 2015 to the file level. It was rearranged in 2019-2021 as item-level control was enacted selectively on photographs and A/V. Published books have been separated, and catalogued. Maps have been separated and are pending library cataloguing. Efforts to separate and rehouse maps and photographs are ongoing as of 2022.
