Name of creator
George Frederick Stalker was an Ottawa architect at the time he entered the 1892 competition to design the British Columbia Parliament Buildings under the pseudonym Alma. He subsequently moved to British Columbia, and married Clara Bell Montgomery in Vancouver on 18 Apr 1906. They lived in Wilmer where he was appointed a stipendiary magistrate and a coroner in 1910.
The plans were owned by Mrs. Adelaide B. Morgan, the daughter of G.F. Stalker, who donated them to the Royal BC Museum Corporation in 2004.
Scope and content
The fonds consist of a series of drawings by Ottawa architect G.F. Stalker under the pseudonym Alma for the 1892 competition to design the British Columbia Parliament Buildings. Although the plans are numbered from 1 to 15, only 13 plans were donated.
