History / Biographical
Although it was initially established in 1907 as the newspaper for the nearby community of Aldermere, the Interior News transferred to Smithers in 1915 with Joseph Coyle as the editor. He remained editor until 1918 when the newspaper was sold to Lawrence Beverly (L. B.) Warner (nee Nyland), who published the paper out of his house in Smithers with the help of his wife, Margaret “Peg” Warner. In its initial years, the paper was hand set, five pages long, and cost ten cents. After Warner’s death on February 25, 1940, his wife, Margaret, and son, Kenneth (Ken) Warner, continued to publish the paper. Ken Warner sold the paper to Bill Yorke-Hardy, Keith Marshall, and Gary White, of North Central Press. In 1979, North Central Press sold The Interior News to Black Press, which still owns the paper to this day.

History / Biographical
The Telkwa Foundation (1976-c.1987) was a non-profit, non-partisan, public interest research group dedicated to environmentalism and social justice issues in Northwestern British Columbia. It was founded in late summer or early fall 1976 by Telkwa residents Tony Pearse and Jim Wright, in response to the planned construction of an oil pipeline from Kitimat to Edmonton, AB. The specific impetus for its creation, according to Tony Pearse, was a presentation and slideshow given in Smithers by Gary Gallon, director of the Vancouver SPEC, on issues in oil transportation. Initially a volunteer group, the Telkwa Foundation acquired a Canada Works Grant in spring 1977 allowing it to hire staff members for the Habitat North projects, which lasted until October 1978. It was officially incorporated under the Societies Act on November 6th 1978, with the aim “to develop and promote an ecologically-sound land ethic for the present and future development of northwestern British Columbia.” The organization held meetings, produced annual reports, published a monthly newsletter, gathered, analyzed and distributed research, gave public presentations and educational programs at schools and colleges, and tried to establish constructive relationships with federal, provincial, and local authorities. It disbanded in the late 1980s, at some point after July 21st 1987. In addition to the founders, members included Richard Overstall, Steve Whipp, Mike Morrell, Walter Taylor, Patricia Moss, Sheila Peters, Lynn Shervill, David Price, Ian and Kathy Anderson, Bill Horswill, Sally Moore, Bill Meltcalf, Ric and Karen Careless, Rick Olding, Doug Aberley, Ann Mclean, Irving and Rosemary Fox, Dave Gillespie, and Ros Pojar.

History / Biographical
Talk of forming a Bulkley Valley Agricultural Association to oversee the planning of an exhibition began in 1910 (Interior News, May 1910). Various names were used before incorporation, such as: Bulkley Valley Agricultural Association (Interior News, July 27, 1912), Bulkley Valley Agricultural Association and Farmer’s Institute (Omineca Herald, June 7, 1913) and Bulkley Valley Agricultural and Industrial Exhibition Association (Interior News, June 21, 1919). On July 14, 1919, the Bulkley Valley Agricultural and Industrial Association was incorporated under the Agricultural Act. The mandate of the Association was to "advance the interests of agriculture and to hold an annual exhibition of agricultural products at Smithers, and to do all such other things the directors may decide for the advancement of the association, the farmers and farming." The first directors of the Association included A. Kilpatrick (President, Smithers), J. G. Wood (Vice-President, Telkwa), and L.B. Warner (Secretary Treasurer, Smithers), George Oulton (Smithers), A. J. Prudhomme (Telkwa), E. C. Barger (Telkwa) and William S. Henry (Smithers) (Interior News, June 21, 1919). Smithers held its first Fall Fair in Albert Park, September 30th, 1919. After several years the Fair became a three-day event, presenting a wide variety of exhibits including agricultural displays, livestock and logging shows, handicraft and homemaking exhibits, stage shows, and a midway.
Scope and Content
The fonds is arranged into two series, Administrative and Fall Fair, and contains newspaper programs, prize lists, prize tickets, meeting minutes, correspondence, financial statements, entry forms, certificate of incorporation and a brief history on the founding of the fair.
Arrangement
Records were rearranged in September 2016 by Manda Haligowski to better reflect archival standards and to improve accessibility.

Houston, B.C.
Notes
Photo is set on frame of black cardboard labeled with "Eyres, Victoria, B.C." Vera Frank's name is written on the back but the style of the dress looks like early 1900s. Likely her parents' wedding in 1905. This would also explain the difference in age as Archie was 25 years older than Jessie. The dress is also part of the Museum's collection (1987.57.29), donated by Archie Strimbold.
