Today I learned that when Henry Hudson was trying to find a northerly route to Asia, it was commonly believed at the time that in the summer, it would be warmer at the North Pole than at, say, the Arctic Circle because the sun was up all or most of the day. So he believed the sun would warm and melt the ice at the pole and he could find a route to Asia over the North Pole. Spoiler alert: he didn't find an ice-free passage, but he did find a bunch of whales off a Norwegian island.

We started this book before the Christmas break and we found out then that on Hudson's last voyage, his crew mutinied and left him somewhere on Hudson's Bay. He was never heard from again. #harsh

I finished this on the last (or second last) day of 2017. It took me a while because my life is much busier these days with being responsible. It was nice to read about the war between the US and Canada. Both sides won many battles and both sides lost many. I think we can all agree it was unnecessary though. #reading #books #literature #history #warof1812 #pierreberton #canada #canadianhistory #americanhistory #historical #education
Just some light reading while waiting for the Doctor. 😂

Have you heard of Shirley Petten?

In 1992 Petten won a landmark ruling against the British Columbia Workers' Compensation Board, who had initially refused her a survivor's pension after the death of her partner of 20 years, Bev Holmwood.  She was the first person in Canada to receive same-sex benefits from the board. 
Shirley passed away in 2014, but ALOT is honoured to remember her through an interview in our open access collections, done just a month before her death. Listen at alotarchives.org/collection/shirley-petten .

Oonark silk scarf $75

Designed by Inuit artist Jessie Oonark of Nunavut (formally North West Territories). I have had this scarf in storage for over a year, I did not iron it. I think the honour should go to its next owner-who will use it or frame it.

Special discount considerations will be made to aboriginal/inuit/indigenous patrons who are interested in this beautiful and rare art piece.

Kenojuak silk scarf $75

In gray and green, this scarf was designed by Kenojuak Ashevak, one of the most notable Canadian pioneers of modern Inuit art. I encourage you to read about her story.

I have had this scarf in storage for 2 years and did not iron it, I probably should have but I felt it would be a nice honour for the next owner who uses it or frames it. 
Special discount consideration will be given to Aboriginal/Inuit/indigenous patrons interested in this beautiful and rare vintage scarf.

On Mondays I dream about being an Eskimo Curlew. This print may look tropical but do not be mistaken, this little  buddy lives in northern Canada. Unfortunately this species is at risk of becoming extinct because of over hunting in the later half of the 19th century... classic.

New episode today. We used this model at the Centre d'histoire de Montréal to tell a story about slavery in 18th century New France. Link in bio.

Today is apparently National Hat Day . As I travel across Canada 🇨🇦 behind my boxes of hat paraphernalia , I am astounded that it is 45 years that I have been connected to , and learning about hats . At this time in my life I have the privilege of making connections out of pure interest , and sharing what I can  about the history of hats , the trade , and the skills involved.  This lady in this photo is Kaitlyn Colwell . @colwells.clothing Her family business has been going since the 1800’s in Halifax Nova Scotia . They were hat specialists at the turn of the century , and their history as a company was  one of my earliest obsessions as a young historical costumer . Kaitlyn has honoured me with being the custodian of one of her family heirlooms . The conformator .  As I fly behind it across the country ...... I reflect on what it means to be a traditional men’s hatter .... and I remember the conformator  I owned ( from exactly the same company and age ) and sold many many years ago to a men’s’ hatter from Portland named Paul.  I  had always regretted doing that - and feel somehow that my hatter identity has been restored - like getting your wings back as a fallen angel 😊. Happy hat day Edie ... and thankyou Kaitlyn . We will have lots of fun over the next few years - I look forward to your visits in Vancouver and our spreading the word!! #hatter #collwellbrothers #halifaxhistory #hats #fashionhistory #canadianhistory #canadianbusines #familybusiness #vancouver #tailoringservices #menswear #traditionalmenswear #tophats #bowlers #skills

The Memory Project was lucky to spend Saturday in Calgary interviewing WO Glenn Miller about his experience in West Germany during the Cold War. WO Miller described being a teenager growing up in Lahr, working with anti-aircraft equipment at CFB Baden, joint exercises with NATO allies and much more. 
Keep an eye out for our upcoming interviews!

I just finished 800+ pages on the history of Canadian education. I’m nearly finished with my two reviews as well. Although I disagreed with some of the more traditional-minded approaches to academia as presented by Granatstein in “Who Killed Canadian History?”, his talking points of micro-history and extensive multiculturalism prove true in the study social history. I definitely recommend these two! A good way to eat up an afternoon while also learning about our neighbors to the north.

In 1925 it replaced a wooden structure constructed in 1919 used for remembrance ceremonies. Originally it commemorated the fallen of #WWI but was later expanded to the fallen of #WWII and the #KoreanWar. #warmemorials #memorial #warhistory #canada #canadianhistory #worldwar2 #worldwar1 #wanderlust

Martin Luther King Jr. is widely seen as one of the greatest American leaders of all time.

His legacy continues right up to this day, long after his assassination in 1968.

Did you know?
1. King is the only American citizen, who was not a president, to have a national holiday in his honor.
2. King was arrested 29 times for his civil rights activities.
3. King became the first African-American to be named TIME Magazine’s Man of the Year in 1963. The only other African-American honoree was former President Barack Obama.
4. In 1964, at the age of 35, King was the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
5. He was stabbed with a seven-inch letter opener (and almost died). At a 1958 book signing, Izola Ware Curry stabbed Martin Luther King Jr. with a seven-inch letter opener, claiming that she had been waiting to see him for over five years. The letter opener was so close to the activist’s aorta that it took hours for doctor’s to safely remove.

Often when people come for a tour they are welcomed into the house with the smell of fresh baking as we prepare for events and workshops, and those who attend our events and workshops get to enjoy cakes or cookies as they learn! . . . . . . . . . . #coquitlamheritage  #coquitlam  #explorecoquitlam  #maillardville  #francophone  #mackinhouse  #tricities  #tricitiesig  #portmoody  #portcoquitlam  #surreybc  #newwestminster  #vancouver  #vancity  #yvr  #vancouverisawesome  #explorecanada  #canadianhistory  #vancouverhistory  #cdnhistory  #history  #bchistory  #britishcolumbia  #museum  #museumlife  #museumed  #52museums  #instagramtakeover  #bakestagram  #baking 
Mackin House (@coquitlam_heritage) - In addition to our usual interactive elements, we always include some that are exhibit specific. For Rising Hemlines: An Exploration of 1920s Fashion, we have flashcards where you can learn 1920s slang and their meanings, and these "paper" dolls on magnet boards throughout the house!

Floral beaded leather panel at the @portagecollegemoapaa museum #explorealberta 
Did you know that wildflowers, leaves, and fruits are all themes of Woodland (especially Ojibwe) floral beadwork?

Prior to the 1800s most Indigenous people used porcupine quills for decoration and patterns were geometric.

Mackin House (@coquitlam_heritage) - In our last post we invited you to guess one of the artifacts that we have on display. Did you guess Victorian-era hair receiver? Women would brush their hair and save the strands in their hair receiver. Often they would then use the hair in keepsakes. This hair wreath, on display above the piano in the parlour, is made of three generations of human hair, a unique family heirloom to say the least. It is probably the most polarizing artifact in our collection - people either love it or they hate it!

Rounding out the trip to the @romtoronto was the #vikings exhibit. 
Apparently the formal phrasing is “to go on a Viking” which essentially means to go find your fortune in the world. 
Very cool to see that there were many references to the early settlers the Canadian Maritimes.

When I was 13 years old, I started a bucket list. No. 1 on the list was to go see the Titanic. Yesterday, I got as close to it as I’ll ever get thanks to the replica exhibit at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. I learned so much more about Canada’s part in the search aid and how much it is a part of Nova Scotia’s history. #titanic #unsinkable #richhistory #tragedy #canadianhistory #whitestarline

Mackin House (@coquitlam_heritage) - One of the biggest challenges of operating in a historic house is having enough space! in 2017 alone, we took in over 1400 new acquisitions. We often find ourselves in tight quarters as we work on conservation, but we try our best to maintain a high standard, and ensure that every object is treated properly.

Mackin House (@coquitlam_heritage) - Every year we hold an open house with crafts, activities, and tours to celebrate Mackin House's birthday. These photos are from our last open house in September 2017 when the house turned a whopping 108 years old! We realize that in most places that is not very impressive, but for such a young city, in a young province, in a young country, 108 is pretty good.

Mackin House (@coquitlam_heritage) - We love to partner with community groups! Our last exhibit "A Man's World" explored the world of Canadian men from 1900-1920. Members of the Canadian Military Education Centre collaborated with us on the presentation of information and artifacts from the Great War. . . . . . . . . . . #coquitlamheritage  #coquitlam  #explorecoquitlam  #maillardville  #francophone  #mackinhouse  #tricities  #tricitiesig  #portmoody  #portcoquitlam  #surreybc  #newwestminster  #vancouver  #vancity  #yvr  #vancouverisawesome  #explorecanada  #canadianhistory  #vancouverhistory  #cdnhistory  #history  #bchistory  #britishcolumbia  #museum  #museumlife  #museumed  #52museums  #instagramtakeover  #militaryhistory  #canadianmilitary

“If he was black or French or whatever, and you reach down to help him out of the water, you don’t say to him, oh, I’m not going to get him up, he’s not one of us.” – Randolph Hope.

Randolph George Hope served with the Merchant Navy during the Second World War. He escorted and unloaded cargo between England and South Africa. In his testimony, he remarked upon the fact that he did not experience discrimination in the Merchant Navy.

 In the late 1990s, he participated in the merchant mariners’ hunger strike on Parliament Hill for compensation that had been denied. .

Mr. Hope is pictured leaning on a car he rented to drive to Montreal, Quebec after the war. Follow the link in our bio to hear about his wartime experiences. .

Spending a little quiet time reading this afternoon. This is not an easy book to read as a white Canadian. It’s heartbreaking and eye opening about the immense amount of privilege I’ve benefited from. I was not taught about this in school. Please make some time to read it. 🇨🇦💔 #tanyatalaga #canadasfirstnations #canada #canadianhistory #cdnpoli #truthandreconciliation #firstnations #cree #ojibwe #nishnawbeaskination @justinpjtrudeau @tonyclementcpc #ontario
