Part of Francis Barrow fonds
Diaries, 1903 and 1905; log of his yacht "Toketie," 1926, 1927, 1929, 1931-1940; diaries of summer cruises, 1933, 1934-1936, 1938-1940, 1941; archaeological catalogue. Mr. Barrow emigrated to Canada at the turn of the century, and looked for land in the Kootenays and lived on the Gulf Islands (initially on Brethour Island) before settling near Sidney. He and his wife spent many summers cruising the coast and his diaries contain notes on people they met, Indian villages, pictographs, petroglyphs, and many photographs. A selection of the photographs has been copied by Historic Photographs.
