  • AM1477
  • Fonds
  • 1827-1932

Fonds consists of records of the Taylor and Pierce families. The fonds has been divided into three sousfonds according to the three dominant creators: L.D. Taylor sousfonds (1873-1946), Ted Taylor sousfonds (1919-1959), and the O.J. Pierce (1831 -1939) sousfonds. The fonds includes records relating to the professional activities of family members, including L.D. Taylor's mayoral career and newspaper and mining business interests; Ted Taylor's career as a journalist and Hollywood press agent; Ken Taylor's career as a journalist and his service in the Second World War; and O.J. Pierce's career as an architect and his American Civil War service. Records also document the relationships between family members, their financial affairs and property ownership, education, and activities in general. Records documenting the civic administration and development of Vancouver, 1896 to 1946, may be found in the L.D. Taylor sousfonds and in the Correspondence series of the Ted Taylor and Osborne J. Pierce sousfonds. Some records in the Ted Taylor sousfonds pertain to Mary Louise Taylor, and the Pierce, Beaton and Werbel families. The O.J. Pierce sousfonds includes some records created by Annie, Winifred and Caroline Pierce. Document types include correspondence, photographs, newspapers and clippings, notebooks, financial and legal records, business records, publications, reports, ephemera, architectural drawings, paintings and sketches, poetic works, book drafts, drama scripts, political cartoons, date books, note books, stock certificates and artifacts.
