Part of Riverview Hospital Historical Society collection

The subseries consists of photographs assumed to have been taken by W.J.Moore because of the context in which they were found, although it has not been possible to confirm. It was suggested in documentation accompanying the transfer, that the photographs depict the buildings and livestock of the Dominion Experimental Farm in Agassiz, BC; however, the buildings do not match other available photographs of the farm in Agassiz and therefore, it has not been possible to confirm the location. The glass negatives were found in Summerland, BC. It is possible that the photographs depict the Experimental Farm in Summerland; however, the buildings also do not match existing photographs of the Summerland farm, so it has not been possible to confirm either potential location.

Part of Sara Diamond fonds

This subsubseries consists of the Women’s Labour History Project oral histories, conducted by Sara Diamond through the 1970s and 1980s. These interviews document the experiences of working class women from the 1920’s through the 1950’s, and in some cases, beyond. The interviewees talk about their lives as children, working women, housewives, and trade unionists. Their personal biographies span many countries and provinces, however, the focus of the interviews is on their activities in British Columbia from the Great Depression to the immediate post-war period.

Segments of the video interviews were incorporated into Diamond’s docudrama television series Keeping The Home Fires Burning (1988). Combining original Canadian wartime propaganda, interviews with working class women, original film footage, photographs, musical soundtracks and dramatization, Keeping the Home Fires Burning explored Canadian women’s working and domestic lives during and after World War Two.

The subsubseries is divided into files, titled after the interviewee.

Part of Riverview Hospital Historical Society collection

The subseries consists of photographs thought to have been taken by W.J.Moore although it is possible they were taken by another photographer. The assumption of provenance has been assumed based on the context in which the negatives were found. It has not been possible to confirm. The photographs depict the buildings, livestock, farm workers (likely Essondale patients), and employees of Colony Farm and Essondale (Riverview Hospital). The subjects consist primarily of cows and horses, as Colony Farm was known across the province for the quality of its livestock. It was awarded a master breeder shield in 1930 from the British Columbia Branch of Holstein Canada. Many of the agricultural photographs also show Essondale's West Lawn building at various points in its construction.

On leaflets distributed at the time, she wrote: "I started calling myself Dragu Worker International in July 1984. My official walkout started on Sept. 10th (one day before my 34th birthday). My strike is personal; an opportunity to articulate what my demands are. What the hell I am complaining about. They change and expand as my strike continues; and as I get in touch with my feelings about how I work as an actress, choreographer, performance artist, filmmaker, producer, cleaning lady, teacher, etc. etc...."

Subseries · 1983 to 1986
Part of Sara Diamond fonds

Materials in this subseries relate to Diamond's video installation "Heroics" (1984). Video description from Video Out: “The Heroics series is an attempt to examine the heroism of women through a montage of still photos and visuals intercut with excerpts from approximately 30 women's stories about their sense of personal power and endurance. It was motivated by the artist's concern that heroism is male defined and that male language selects experiences and events within the context of patriarchal definitions of courage. HEROICS can be viewed as a series of six tapes or in the form of a compilation tape - HEROICS: DEFINITIONS.”

The individual tapes in the series are: “Heroics: A Quest”; “Heroics I: Creativity”; “Heroics II: A Shining Example”; “Heroics III: Survival”; “Heroics IV: To Triumph Over Misfortune”; “Heroics V: a Conscious and Difficult Choice.”

Materials include call for participation, release forms, promotional material, publicity of the work, and documentation of various presentations of the work. There is also photographic documentation of both the work and the participants.

X's & O's
Subseries · 1984 - 1986
Part of Margaret Dragu fonds

X's & O's was a performance series by Dragu, revisited throughout her career. She first produced X's & O's during a 1985 artist residency at The Western Front in Vancouver, describing it as "about space and design ... I use the shape of X's and O's as a map, floorpan, idea, magic ritual, game-plan. And this effort/shape menu provides holes (dynamics) in which I stitch culture to the sky. Urban culture and urban rhythms. The music is important. There is lots of step-dancing in it sort-of. The piece maintains the aerial view of apartment living looking down on the marketplace." X's & O's utilized dance, live music, slides, and Super 8 video recording, and was based on controlled improvisation.

The bulk of the records in this subseries are transcripts of the audio interviews. There are often multiple versions of transcripts of the same interview. Some of the transcripts have been edited to draw out the themes present in them, and some of the interviews have accompanying indexes. Other materials in this subseries include: releases from participants; notes on the interviews; correspondence; and notes on the transcription process.

Audio, video, and transcriptions of the oral history interviews have been digitized and are available on the CDMLA website.
