History

Albert Hatherly Maynard (1857-1934) was born June 6th, 1857 in Ontario. He was the son of Richard and Hannah Maynard of Mrs. R. Maynard’s Photographic Gallery (1862? – 1912). He worked as a business owner and photographer in Victoria on Vancouver Island.

Albert Maynard had several siblings including George Maynard (1852-1926 or 1927) and Zela Maynard (1854-1913). Some of Albert’s siblings died young, including Laura Lillian Maynard (1867-1883) who died at age 16 and Emma Maynard (1859 or 1860-1893) who died while in her thirties.

Albert Hatherly Maynard married Adelaide M. Graham in 1878. Between the late 1870s and early 1880s, they had several children including daughters, Mabel Price Maynard (b.1880), Lille Elizabeth (b.1884), and sons John Ridgemen Maynard (b.1879) and Richard James Maynard (b. 1881). Adelaide Maynard died in her early thirties. In 1914, Albert Maynard later remarried to widower Violet Mabel Graham.

Mr. A. H. Maynard and his family are closely linked to the Maynard photographic studio business, Mrs. R. Maynard’s Photographic Gallery, as well as his father’s business. Mr. R. Maynard, known for his field and landscape photography, made one of his early work-related excursions to Barkerville in the Cariboo with his son Albert H. in 1868. Upon his father’s retirement in the late 1890s, Albert took on the role of general manager of his father’s business as well as taking over management of the photographic stock. After the death of his mother Hannah in 1918, Albert was the executor of her will. Near the end of his life in the early 1930s, Albert H. Maynard facilitated the distribution of his parent’s photographic work to educational institutions such as those on the west coast of Canada and United States. Distributed works included ethnographic photographs documenting the territorial lands, resources, culture, and lifeways of Coast Salish and Interior Salish First Nation communities. Also during this time, he sold many of the original records of photographers Hannah and Richard Maynard to what is now the Royal BC Museum and Archives.

As a business owner, Albert H. Maynard operated photographic businesses with several locations over the course of his lifetime. He held business operations in Victoria, including at Pandora and Yates Streets. Albert advertised under various names such as "Albert H. Maynard, successor to R. Maynard, Photographic Supplies and Apparatus" and "Albert H. Maynard, Photographic Supplies + Apparatus" throughout the 1910s and 1920s. In the later years of his business, Mr. A. H. Maynard appears to have taken on a partnership with P.G. Stewart and a move to Yates Street from the Pandora Avenue location. For a period, the business was known as "Maynard and Stewart Photo Supply Co." In March 1932, Mr. A Maynard was reported by The Daily Colonist to have transferred leadership of his photographic partnership to L. E. Maynard.

Albert Hatherly Maynard died in Victoria in 1934.
