Allen S. Wootton was a civil engineer who spent much of his career with the Vancouver Park Board.
Wootton was born July 26, 1873 in England, and was a Town Engineering in England before moving to Canada, presumably to take the position of Parks Engineer with the Vancouver Park Board in June 1913. In 1936 he was appointed Parks Superintendent, effectively the head of the Park Board's operations. While with the Park Board, Wootton designed a number of structures, both built and unbuilt, for park and recreation facilities across the city.
Allen Wootton died August 6, 1950.
Scope and content
File consists of drawings depicting various buildings designed for an "Indian village" or "Indian museum" to be located in the Lumberman's Arch area of Stanley Park. Five of the drawings are of buildings designed by Henry E.C. Carrey for the Arts, Historical and Scientific Association of British Columbia, who came up with the original idea for a collection of buildings to represent a model First Nations village. When the project failed to garner funding, the Association handed the project off to the Parks Board.
Two later drawings by Parks Board Superintendent A.S. Wooton are for a smaller, single building referred to as an "Indian museum" proposed for the same site.
