Dates of existence



The Community Arts Council of Vancouver (CACV) collection was assembled and maintained by Melva Dwyer, Head of the Fine Arts Division of the Library. The CACV was formed in 1947 following an extensive analytical study of the community's resources and needs in the general area of the arts. Its object was to "increase and broaden the opportunities for Vancouver citizens to enjoy and participate in cultural activities." The origins and development of the organization are fascinating in that several members of the University of British Columbia staff played a predominant role.
