Scope and content

This subseries contains records from Lyons' activities as a writer of newspaper and magazine articles, largely in the 1950s and 1960s during the time that he was still employed in BC Parks. The subject of the articles typically concern the BC outdoors and activities and include titles like "BC's Great Cliffs," "Native Shrubs," and "Enjoy Outdoors with Home on Wheels." While Lyons wrote articles for a variety of newspaper and magazines, most records in this subseries appear to be from Lyons' "This Amazing Province" series which ran in the Victoria Times in the early 1950s, as well as several articles that appeared in the magazine Forest and Mill, published by the Forest Industries of B.C. until 1966. This subseries consists of manuscripts, drafts, clippings (some glued into a scrapbook), photographs and negatives, research notes, reference material, correspondence, and other textual records pertaining to newspaper and magazine articles by Lyons.
