History / Biographical
The Bulkley Valley Museum (BVM) was founded in large part by Ernest Hann, an early pioneer who amassed a large collection of documents, photographs and artifacts representing local settler history. This became the core collection upon which the Museum was built. The first public displays of artifacts opened in 1967 in the newly-constructed Smithers Public Library. However, it was not until 1971 that the Bulkley Valley Historical & Museum Society was officially incorporated. With space becoming limited in the Library, the Museum was moved in 1974 to the historic Central Park Building, which had once served as Smithers' government building, courthouse, and jail. The Museum first shared a room with the Smithers Art Gallery before receiving its own space. Today the BVM collects, preserves and presents items of historical and cultural significance from Smithers and the Bulkley Valley and is enjoyed by over 5000 people per year.
Custodial History
All items in this fonds were retained by the Museum as internal records following their initial creation and use, and were accessioned and entered into the OF1 fonds upon being found in collections.
Scope and Content
This fonds contains material created and used by the Bulkley Valley Museum during the course of its day-to-day activities, from the time of its inception as a historical society in the early 1960s up to and including the present. These are primarily textual records such as meeting minutes, staff reports, exhibit plans, correspondence, policies, financial documents, curator diaries, guest books, scrapbooks, and membership lists. The fonds also includes photographs, pamphlets, posters, floor plans, 1 CD of oral history recordings, and 2 videocassettes. Furthermore, there is an increasing amount of born-digital material (Word docs, PDFs, images) which have yet to be fully processed into the fonds.
Arrangement
This fonds was first arranged around 2018 by Manda Haligowski and was rearranged in spring 2021 by Holly Peterson. In its current form, the OF1 fonds is divided into nine series: - S1) Office of the Curator - S2) Board of Directors - S3) events and promotions - S4) Old Church - S5) guest books/lists - S6) scrapbooks - S7) maps and plans - S8) photographs - S9) audiovisual materials. Series 1, 2, 3, and 4 have been further subdivided into subseries and/or files; see their Arrangement fields for more details.

History / Biographical
The Midsummer Music Festival has been held annually in Smithers by the Bulkley Valley Folk Music Society since 1984. The Festival was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19, but the 'Midsummer Memories' event was held instead, involving pop-up performances along Main Street from late morning until early afternoon on Saturday, July 4th. Social distancing protocols were in effect, preventing large crowds from forming. In addition, a display was set up at the Bulkley Valley Museum with slideshow displays of photos from years past as well as posters, t-shirts, and other Midsummer memorabilia. This poster was displayed on the door of the Central Park Building over the July 4th weekend.
Custodial History
Item was given to the museum to put on the CPB door during the Midsummer Memories weekend, and accessioned afterwards by BVM staff. It was initially added to the BVM discrete item collection, then the Bulkley Valley Folk Music Society fonds (October 2020) before finally being transferred to the COVID-19 collection (March 2021).
Scope and Content
Item is a poster advertising the Midsummer Memories events held in Smithers on July 4th 2020.
