Name of creator
Rev. J.A.S. Bastin was a Church of England Circuit Missionary in the Nicola-Thompson River region in 1895-1901. He was sent out by the SPG (Society for the Propagation of the Gospel) as a Deacon to the native people. He was ordained a Priest by the Bishop Dart of New Westminster at Lytton in 1896 and was under the supervision of Archdeacon Richard Small. He was present at the consecration of the Church of All Saints in Shulus, and he was also at the side of Emily Crease (a very respected and well-loved citizen of Lytton) when she died after a tragic accident.
Shirley Green, daughter of Rev. Bastin, developed the negatives and donated the prints to the Princeton Museum and Archives, who in turn donated several of the prints to the Lytton Museum and Archives and the rest to the Secwepemc Museum and Heritage Park via Ken Faverholdt, manager/curator.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of correspondence and photographs. Includes letters with information about Rev. Bastin, and 19 photographs, some of them enlarged. The photographs include images of Native people, a summer campsite (native) at Botannie Lake, Lytton scenes, and Rev. Bastin and his horse.
