Name of creator
Thomas Edward Wilkinson (d . 1914) was a Bishop of the Church of England who served in Northern and Central Europe and in West Africa . The Wilkinson family (Thomas H., Margaret (Peggy) and Kenneth) were pioneers in British Columbia and had ties to schools in the lower mainland, York House School and St. George's School, as well as the Canadian Forestry Association's British Columbian branch.
Records were kept by the Wilkinson family and descendants until January 1974 when they were donated to the University of British Columbia Library with a collection of books. They were assessed as having archival value and removed from the book collection under the direction of George Brandak, Manuscripts Curator. The records were then moved to the care of the Special Collections Division at UBC. After consultation and approval from E.D.H Wilkinson, a descendant of Rev. Thomas Wilkinson, through a series of correspondence in early 1974, the records were kept at UBC Special Collections.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of textual and photographic records relating to personal, business and financial matters of the Wilkinson family and their lives in British Columbia in the twentieth century. The fonds includes individual photographs and a photograph album depicting locations of the lower mainland and Vancouver Island, student group photographs and images of family members and individuals. The textual records pertain to the personal correspondence of the members of the Wilkinson family, school records, an appointment book, a diary, sketchbooks of international travel, personal financial records and statistical records relating to British Columbia logging practices.
