Biographical history

Roderick Forbes MacKenzie was a construction supervisor in Vancouver, B.C.

Custodial history

The family of Roderick Mackenzie originally donated the films to the Ministry of Highways in 1976. The Ministry of Highways then edited the films to remove all family scenes and sent the original films to the National Archives of Canada with the proviso that the National Archives of Canada would provide copies to the Ministry of Highways. The ministry then transferred the copies to the Provincial Archives in 1981. The photographs were donated by Mr. Mackenzie's cousin, Duncan O. Mackenzie, in 1988.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of photographs of the construction of roads, railway buildings and golf course construction, and films of dam and highway construction, as well as travel scenes in the Kootenay Region.
