Name of creator
Reverend Basil Shakespeare Sutherland Hartley was ordained by the BC Conference of the United Church of Canada in 1939. Accompanied by his wife Edythe, Hartley worked in communities throughout BC, including Skidegate (1939-1940), Kitimaat (1941-1943), Windermere Valley (1944-1945), Greenwood (1946-1947), Nakusp (1948-1950). In 1951 he retired to Vancouver, and later lived in Nanaimo (1953), Castor, Alberta (1945-1955), and Rockey Mountain House (1956-1957). He died in 1973. His widow, Edythe Hartley, later remarried, becoming Edythe McClure.
Name of creator
Edyth McClure was the wife of the former United Church missionary, Rev. Basil Hartley, who served in the Kitimat area.
Edythe McClure donated the audio cassette and photographs to the museum in 1983. The 8mm film reel was discovered in the backlog of the MOA Archives.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of audio, video, and visual materials created by Basil and Edythe Hartley.

The three audio cassettes all contain the same 1983 recording.
