History / Biographical
The Bulkley Valley District Hospital Ladies’ Auxiliary was formed on June 11, 1920, after the Hospital Board was founded. Mrs. A. Kilpatrick chaired the first meeting and was the first Auxiliary member appointed on the Hospital Board. The first Auxiliary executives included Mrs. James MacDonald (President), Edith O’Neill (Vice President), Mrs. W.F. Boyer (Treasurer), and Mrs. David Jennings (Secretary). Twenty-three women paid their memberships of $1.00 at the first meeting. From 1920 to 1934, the Auxiliary provided the Hospital with linens, towels, etc., made gowns for surgeons and nurses, pneumonia jackets, bath robes, baby clothes and night shirts, and often helped pay the nurses’ salaries. They also hosted fundraising events for necessary furnishings and equipment for both the Hospital and Nurses’ Residence.

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 prize lists, prize tickets, meeting minutes, correspondence, financial statements, entry forms, certificate of incorporation and a brief history on the founding of the fair.
