History / Biographical
Alan Pickard was born and raised in New Zealand. He met his wife, Anne, while visiting Calgary en route to Europe. They moved to the Bulkley Valley in 1970, working here for a few months before moving to Kitimat for four years. Afterwards, they returned to Smithers and built a log cabin on Telkwa High Road. The two were frequent international travelers, dividing their time between the Bulkley Valley and locations such as Alaska, Saudi Arabia and New Zealand. Pickard began researching early settler history of the Bulkley Valley in 1998. He initially focused on the Telkwa High Road and the two telegraph lines that ran along it: the Collins Overland telegraph (1866) and the Yukon telegraph (1900). His interests then broadened to include early trails, roads and bridges, early (pre-1914) settlers, place names, and maps. Pickard’s use of original sources (books, archival records, etc.) in his research led to him collecting documents such as early mining claims, Hudson’s Bay Company and North West Company trading posts, and land surveys in the Bulkley Valley. Pickard’s research is a continuation of the work of other researchers, including local historian Lynn Shervill, author of “Smithers: From Swamp to Village,” and John Tupper Saywell. He also assisted Kate Smallwood with her book “Kate’s Selection,” published in 2005. In addition to his historical research, Pickard served as the Chairman of the Smithers Library Board, was a member of the Bulkley Valley Writers’ Group, contributed articles to the Interior News, staked mining claims, worked as an electrician, and wrote poetry (his volume being the first book printed by Bulkley Valley Printers). In 2005, Alan and Anne Pickard returned to New Zealand, where they currently reside.

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. The Fair continues to this day, having been held every year since 1919 except for 1932-1933, 1938-1945, 1950-1952, and 2020.
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, newspaper supplements, 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.

The Bulkley Valley Concert Association is a community group with the mandate of promoting and fostering an interest in the performing arts in the Bulkley Valley. It welcomes touring groups in concerts that feature choirs, live music, ballet, and theatre productions. The Association has a hands-on working board that directly engages with artists and manages each show. Records in this fonds indicate that the Bulkley Valley Concert Association existed as early as 1959; however, the Association considers itself to have been active only since 1963. Evidently the Association has existed in various forms throughout the years with its present form emerging after it was renewed at a public meeting held on October 13, 1977. After its reorganization in 1977, the Association came under the coordination of the B.C. Overture Concerts Society with Diane Harmon as campaign chairwoman, Elaine Lee as secretary, and Monica Fraser as treasurer.

History / Biographical
The Bulkley Valley Folk Music Society (BVFMS) is a Smithers-based non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and celebration of folk music within the Valley. It developed out of the Styx River Coffee House, a folk music organization coordinated by George and Norma Stokes in the late 1970s. Marion Rose and Kevin Widen sought to establish a yearly music festival and formed a new organization in order to run it. The BVFMS was officially incorporated in 1984, held its first general meeting on March 19th of that year, and joined the Bulkley Valley Community Arts Council in 1985. It has run the Midsummer Music Festival every year since its inception, with the exception of 2020, in which the smaller Midsummer Memories event was held instead. The Festival includes over 30 acts and draws over 3000 attendees from northwestern BC and beyond. In addition, the Bulkley Valley Folk Music Society holds two annual guitar camps for youth and adults, hosts the BVFMS Coffeehouse from October to April, awards bursaries to students pursuing post-secondary education in music or creative arts, and rents out sound equipment and a CD/DVD duplicator.
Custodial History
Items with accession number 2020.40 were donated to the Museum by Kevin Widen of the BVFMS on October 7th 2020. They were grouped together with 2020.7 to create the Bulkley Valley Folk Music Society fonds on October 8th.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of a hard drive containing thousands of BVFMS photographs dated between 1984 and 2020.
Arrangement
The photographs on the hard drive have been arranged by donor Kevin Widen, with each year from 1984 to 2020 having its own folder. These folders typically include a small number of ‘selected’ photos, a large number of processed photos, a larger number of unprocessed photos, and sometimes a collection of top photos for the year. For most years, the unprocessed photo files are named beginning with the year, followed by the photographer’s initials, the film roll number, and the frame number. Scans of the BVFMS scrapbooks are included in some of the folders. Years 1984, 1985, 1991, 2007, and 2016-2019 include a selection of photos used in slideshows as well. See 2020/10/06 Note by Kevin Widen (accessions binder) or the ‘About these Photos’ document on the W Drive for further information on the photos.
