Biographical history

Henry Alan Bulwer settled in Hatzic in 1887, after having lived in Ireland, England, and the West Indies, and lived there until ca. 1905, when he moved to Victoria. He later settled in Vancouver. He built a 17-room house on the Hatzic property to accommodate his collection of furniture, paintings and books. He was a co-founder of the Vancouver Art Gallery, to which he gave many of his paintings. He also presented paintings to the National Gallery in Ottawa. His library was presented to the University of British Columbia.
