History / Biographical
Floyd Ray Richerson and Nellie Aline Richerson (nee Hollowell) were both born and raised in Denison, Texas; they married secretly in Oklahoma in 1937 when Floyd was 25 and Nellie was 17. The couple had five children: James, Donna, Jane, Margaret, and Joyce. Floyd earned a chemistry degree and joined the marines, working as a machinist for the American military in WWII, while Nellie worked at a cotton mill. In 1951, the Richersons passed through the Bulkley Valley on a family road trip to Alaska and ended up permanently settling in Smithers. Floyd opened a machinery business where he built and repaired parts for local companies for over 40 years. Richerson's Studio opened in 1954 at the corner of 4th Avenue and Queen Street (though a 1961 Interior News article states it was at 4th and Columbia). It was active throughout the 1950s and 60s. Mentions of the Studio in the Interior News stop after 1976; it likely closed by the time Nellie retired around 1982. Floyd Richerson passed away in Smithers in 2013, and Nellie passed away sometime before 2011.
Custodial History
The photographs were collected by Dianne Van Der Meulen, who passed away in May 2019. They were then donated to the museum in two separate binders by Gary Van Der Meulen in summer 2019.
Scope and Content
The collections are primarily wedding photographs, family portraits, and headshots taken by Richerson’s Studios in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
Arrangement
The photographs were entered into the database in the order in which they appeared in their respective donated binders. The first binder contained P6589-P6690 and the second contained P6806-P6932. Additional photos are numbered P7110-P7286 and P7296-P7312.

History / Biographical
Alois “Louis” Schibli was born in Busslingen, Switzerland on December 23, 1919, to parents John Schibli and Anna Schifferli. In 1937, he immigrated to Canada with his father, mother and siblings (John and Agnes). They arrived in Smithers, B.C., on April 10, 1937 and remained there until 1949, when the family sold their farm and moved to Langley, B.C. In Langley, Louis met his wife, Gertrud (Trudi) Herzig. They married in Langley on September 5, 1950, and moved to Smithers in September, 1951. At this time, Schibli mainly worked in construction for his brother-in-law, George Adomeit. In 1958, he took a job in the newly formed School District No. 54 as a maintenance man, eventually being promoted to Maintenance Supervisor. The couple had seven children, including George, Margareth (Piccioni), Irene (Vanderark), Mary Jane (Warren), John, Andrew and Robert. Schibli also had a photography side-business called “Louis Studio”, photographing events such as weddings to school pictures. Schibli passed away on January 5, 2015, in Surrey, B.C. See finding aid for more information.

History / Biographical
Gilbert Clarke Killam was born in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, on March 6, 1863 to John Killam and Lucy Anne Harris. He married Jennie Mary Sanderson (born in St. Petersberg, Prince Edward Island) in 1891 and together they had three sons: Arthur Sanderson, Gilbert Wallace, and Thomas Harold. The family lived in Pasadena, California for a number of years. Killam listed his trade as “architect.” In 1898, the Killam family moved to Dawson City, Yukon, where Gilbert worked as a Customs Agent while continuing to do some architectural work. From the Yukon, the Killams moved to Vancouver, BC, in 1911 and then to Smithers, BC, when it was first founded in 1913. Killam was active in the Smithers community affairs and served as treasurer of the Smithers Citizens’ Association. He also drafted plans in 1914 for a two-storey building on Main Street for the Gray Jewelry Co., and a home for R.G. Barnett on Second Avenue. Killam lived in Smithers from 1913 to 1917, photographing Smithers in its infancy. Killam used glass plate negatives, most commonly 5 x 7 and 8 x 10 inches in size, printing “Killam” or “G.C.K” on the negative to indicate authorship. In 1917, Killam enlisted in the Canadian Army while his wife, Jennie, remained in Seattle, Washington. He served in the Canadian Over-Seas Expeditionary Force. Killam was demobilized in 1921, and not much is known about Killam after this time. He appears in the 1921 census in Victoria, BC, without his family, and by 1935, Killam was living in Palm Springs, California. Gilbert Clarke Killam passed away on October 27, 1945.
Custodial History
The original glass plate negatives “disappeared” for a number of years until 1954, when they were discovered in a building used as the post office. They were later given to Smithers' main photographer, Louis Schibli, who donated them to the museum in the 1980s. Various photos taken by Gilbert Clarke Killam were accessioned into the collection and added to this fonds over the years. In July 2020, all photos and albums in the database with Killam listed as the creator were transferred to this fonds. Most of these had previously been in the BVM visual records collection, although the souvenir photo albums (2004.61, containing photos P4534-P4569) had been part of the discrete items collection.
Scope and Content
Fonds contains photographs of Smithers during the first four years of its existence as a settlement (1913-1917), taken by Gilbert Clarke Killam. Subjects include people, buildings, street and town views, landscapes/scenery, industry, and special events (plays, concerts, the Fall Fair, etc.)
Arrangement
This fonds does not have a specific arrangement; photos are listed at item-level and ordered by their P numbers. The two photograph albums (2004.61 and 1992.34) have file-level descriptions, but all of their photos have been removed and listed as individual items.
Geographic Access
Smithers, B.C.
Notes
Note that there may still be unidentified Killam photos in the collection that have not yet been made part of this fonds (likely due to not having Killam listed as a creator on the database).

History / Biographical
Both Marjorie and her husband were interested in the Arts and began organizing events in the community. The couple first collaborated with the Swiss Club to present a 2-day Midsummer Night Festival in 1955. The event was held on the Thens’ farm, and ran for 3 years. Subsequently, in 1959, Marjorie and Tadek, along with others interested in acting, formed The Bulkley Valley Players. While Marjorie performed in many of the plays, she also worked as a producer.
In 2001, Marjorie moved to White Rock, B.C.
Marjorie also took an active role on the Library Board, and the Arts and Recreation Commission. Further, she, along with her husband, Jo and Gerry Brinkman, Jack and Gladis Burry, George Zuckerman, and Don and Hilda Bedows, formed the Concert Association. In 1972, Marjorie worked with a group to form the Smithers Art Gallery Association and open a gallery space. As well, she wrote a weekly column called “Downtown” for the Interior News, which highlighted local Arts, and had a 21-year run in the paper. In 1973, Marjorie petitioned to save the Central Park Building, which the Town of Smithers wished to demolish, so as to repurpose it as an arts and culture space.
Marjorie Then immigrated to Halifax from England in 1948 with her husband, Tadek, and children Vanda and Olza. They eventually moved to Smithers, B.C., to farm, and had four additional children: Carol, Jan, Gavin, and Alec.

History / Biographical
The Kispiox Farmers’ Institute was incorporated in February of 1915. The first meeting was held on April 21, 1915, at the Salvation Army Hall in Poplar Park. In 1917, Matthew Halliday was elected as president, Fred Janze as vice-president, P.H. Sheehan as secretary-treasurer, and John Love and J.E. Janze as auditors. The institute temporarily closed down in 1920 (as reported in the 1920 annual report of the British Columbia Department of Agriculture). In September 23, 1929, a re-organization took place and the Kispiox Valley Farmers’ Institute was granted a new charter. As of 1929, under the Societies Act, the objectives of the Institute were: 1. To improve conditions of rural life, so that settlement may be permanent and prospers; 2. To promote the theory and practice of agriculture by lectures, essays, the circulation of information and other educational methods, and to stimulate interest by exhibitions, prizes and other means; 3. To arrange on behalf of its members for the purchase, distribution, or sale of commodities, supplies, or products, and generally to act on their behalf in all matters incidental to agricultural pursuits; 4. To promote social intercourse, mutual helpfulness, and the diffusion of knowledge, and to make new settlers welcome. Articles and advertisements in the Interior News indicate that the Kispiox Valley Farmers’ Institute was active until at least the early 2000s.
Custodial History
These records were held by Helen Campbell, Secretary-Treasurer of the Kispiox Valley Farmers’ Institute, and were transferred to the Archives by Howard Ennis, a member of the Farmers’ Institute.
Scope and Content
The records created and collected by the Kispiox Valley Farmers’ Institute reflect the objectives outlined in the Societies Act. These records include correspondence, annual reports, financial statements, as well as records pertaining to a variety of issues relevant to the Institute, such as flood surveillance, the Kispiox Valley Road, weed control, planning and zoning, resource use, and Gitxsan and Witsuwit’en land claims.
