Custodial history

Scope and content

This series consists of approximately 66 coil-bound notebooks with Lyons' handwritten notes detailing his travels in British Columbia, Mexico, England, Asia, and elsewhere. Many of these notebooks appear to be related to Lyons' activities as an international tour guide for his travel company, Golden Eye Travel, especially those that mention tour members. The information recorded in these notebooks include travel notes, such as expenses, names and addresses, accomodation, food, foreign words and phrases. Lyons also used these note books to record notes on botany and wildlife, such as names and sketches of flora and fauna, especially birds. There are also some sketches of maps. Film notes, sound notes, and photograph notes also figure strongly here. Some notes are extremely detailed diary-like entries that may be the beginnings of the film scripts inspired by these trips. These notebooks have been arranged chronologically.
