Scope and content
Dr. Margaret Ormsby (1909-1996) was a distinguished B.C. historian and a member of the Provincial Heritage Advisory Board
MS-2009 consists of notes, correspondence, minutes, and reports collected by Dr. Margaret Ormsby during the course of her work as a member of the Provincial Heritage Advisory Board.
The Provincial Heritage Advisory Board was established by the provincial government in 1978. Its role, as defined by the Heritage Conservation Act (28 Eliz. 2, c. 165, s. 9), was to advise the Minister of the Provincial Secretary on the implementation of policy. Specifically, the Board was consulted to establish criteria for the designation of heritage sites, and the granting of permits necessary for altering sites or objects which were deemed to have "historic, architectural, archaeological, palaeontological or scenic significance." The Board normally consisted of thirteen members, representing educational institutions, business, and government. Members were appointed at the pleasure of the Lieutenant Governor in Council.
The Provincial Heritage Advisory Board was abolished in June 1983. Duties of the Board were transferred to the director of the Heritage Conservation Branch.
Immediate source of acquisition
Dr. Ormsby presented the records in MS-2009 to the Provincial Archives in June 1984.
