Scope and content

The subseries consists largely of photographs from three albums compiled by Howardson depicting events and organizations in the Vancouver Icelandic community. Howardson was very involved in the various community organizations. Resultantly, the textual records in her collection consist of correspondence, minutes, and reports from the Icelandic Canadian Club of British Columbia, the Icelandic National League, the Sólskin Society, the Icelandic Care Home Höfn House and the Icelandic Lutheran Church. The subseries contains eight recordings of Icelandic music and events that were broadcast over Icelandic community radio. The subseries also includes a copy of The Icelandic-Canadian Poet Stephan Gudmundsson Stephansson: A Tribute by Kerry Wood.
