History / Biographical
The Aidas were a Japanese-Canadian family who lived in Smithers during the 1920s-1940s. Kintaro Aida, born in Tokyo in 1888, immigrated to Canada in 1906 and married Sadako Fuseya-Wanibe, who had come to Canada from Japan in 1909. The couple had three sons in Prince Rupert - Tatsuo 'Tat' (b. 1916), Fujio 'Joe' (b. 1917), and Tetuso 'Ben' (b. 1919) - before moving to Smithers. Two more children - a son named Asao and a daughter named Sumiko - were born here in 1927 and 1929 respectively. Kintaro ran a tailor shop and rooming house, while Sadako managed a laundry. Sadako, Asao and Sumiko visited family in Japan shortly before the outbreak of World War II and were unable to return home until after the war. Asao got married in Japan and remained there. The rest of the Aida family moved to Stouffville, Ontario in the late 1940s. For more information, see finding aid.

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
Albert George Shepherd was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on September 14, 1914. When he was four years-old, he moved to Hubert, B.C. with his family and was on one of the last wagons to cross the bridge at Hubert before it was washed out. His family moved to the Bulkley Valley to make their fortune in farming. Shepherd was educated at the only school in Round Lake, and later worked on Joe Bourgon’s farm in the early 1930s before purchasing his own farm in the Round Lake area. In 1938, he married Grace Phillips, a school teacher, and the couple had a son (James) and a daughter (Sally). Shepherd was the manager of the Bulkley Valley seed cleaning plant for two years; he later became the northern representative (McBride to Terrace) for the Canadian Farm and Loan Board. After selling his farm in 1948, he was employed by Bulkley Valley Collieries for a year, and also worked as a woods foreman for the TFM Mills in Telkwa, B.C. In 1951, he went into partnership with his father-in-law, Bob Phillips, for two years. He was elected as a school trustee in 1952 and, later, secretary-treasurer of the Smithers and District School Board. Although Shepherd retired in 1976, he was appointed provincial government representative to the board of directors of Northwest Community College in 1977; director of the Telkwa Barbeque; director of the Telkwa Skating Rink; and served as rector warden for St. Stephens Anglican Church. His leisure diversions included woodworking, gardening, and the collection of pioneer artifacts. He died in Telkwa, B.C., on February 16, 1981.
