Knowledge shared by institutions

Edith Bevan Cross lived in Sidney on Vancouver Island, and collected Northwest Coast artefacts between 1940 and 1960, when her collection was purchased by the Museum of Anthropology. Bevan-Cross travelled through several tribal regions collecting examples of representative culture. She thought that her interest in this collection may have been due to her contact as a child with Salish people who lived on a reserve that her family passed though to reach their summer camp at Cowichan Bay.
