Below is the link to the first phase of an online archive/database/thematic research collection that I put  together this term. I used Omeka.net, an online exhibit builder, to display a series of documents that the BC Archives has generously allowed me to display online on an ongoing basis. Please feel free to explore the site and give me feedback!

“This exhibit, the first phase of ‘the story is more than itself,’ consists of correspondence, literary works, illustrations, newspaper articles, and magazine reviews from between 1939 and 1941. Taken together, these materials provide a brief glimpse into the work and life-stories of three individuals—Alice Ravenhill, Anthony Walsh, and Noel Stewart—who coordinated their efforts to promote the artistic abilities of Indigenous children enrolled in Indian Residential and Day Schools in British Columbia.”
