Bound volume: Newspaper clippings of early British Columbia beekeeping history (John Corner collector)

File represents a bound volume of newspaper clippings pertaining primarily to BC beekeeping history, but also to apiculture-related issues in general. Clippings are mainly from BC newspapers, but there are also some from other provinces and international sources. Leaves of the volume are labelled chronologically by year, but the 1940s and 1950s are grouped together. Clippings through the 1970s are sporadic. Up to the 1940s, newspaper clippings are affixed to the leaves with tape or adhesive. Thereafter, clippings are held loosely between the leaves and additional materials have been added including some correspondence, photographs, and pamphlets.

Bryett), pamphlets, catalogues, original correspondence to H.J. Minall, Apiary Branch annual reports, handwritten recollections by John Stawn (Vernon and Peace River areas), recollections by John Corner on post war beekeeping in BC, a BC Honey Producers Association brochure, beekeeping booklets from Alex Sacharoff (Terrace, BC) printed in Russian, and a booklet of transparencies featuring the anatomy of the honeybee.


Series comprises photographs primarily featuring BC beekeeping yards, personalities, exhibits, association meetings, and equipment, but also portrait photographs of former Dominion Apiarists Dr. T. Gochnaur, C. B. Gooderham, and F.W.L. Sladen.
