Administrative history

The Vancouver Maritime Museum is responsible for collecting, documenting, preserving, exhibiting and interpreting the maritime history of the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia. The Museum was constructed in 1958 as a project for British Columbia's centennial year, opening in 1960. In 1959 the City of Vancouver created a Civic Museum Board to administer the Maritime Museum. The Board was later also given responsibility for the Vancouver Museum and Planetarium; however, in 1972 responsibility for these institutions was transferred to the Vancouver Museums and Planetarium Association (previously the Vancouver Art, Historical and Scientific Association). In 1988 the Maritime Museum was separated from the Association and has since functioned independently.

Custodial history

The material was in the custody of the Vancouver Maritime Museum before it was transferred to the Archives at intervals from 1964 to 1991.

Scope and content

The collection contains records pertaining to a wide variety of maritime subjects and includes log books and ships' plans, records pertaining to ships' crews, records pertaining to the Royal Commission on Pilotage held in the 1960s, drawings of harbours, records of the North Vancouver Ferry Company and records of the Point Atkinson Lightstation. The collection also includes records of the Board of Directors of the Maritime Museum from 1974 to 1987.
