  • University of British Columbia Museum of AnthropologyUniversity of British Columbia Museum of Anthropology Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    The Museum of Anthropology is found on the campus of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and has become world famous for its wonderful exhibits of world arts and cultures, especially those that were created by the First Nations Peoples of the Pacific Northwest. It is a marvelous teaching museum, research museum, numerous courses and a major tourist attraction. The museum started in 1947, as many pieces of the university's ethnographic collection were displayed in the basement of the main library, with Dr. Harry Hawthorn becoming the first director and his wife, Dr. Audrey Hawthorn the first curator. The museum acquired funds from the government in 1971 and the university started building a new museum structure, which was opened in 1976, and designed by well known Canadian architect Arthur Erickson. In 1975, Walter and Marianne Koerner donated their huge collection of northwest coast First Nations artworks to the museum which would become a big part of the new building's collection. The building was inspired by the post and beam architecture of northern Northwest Coast First Nations people, made mostly of concrete for longevity.

  • The Pacific Museum of the EarthPacific Museum of the Earth Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    The Geological Museum was started by R. W. Brock, the same man that began the National Museum in Ottawa, became the first museum at the University of British Columbia in 1923. The building would be finished and museum installed in 1925, with Professor M. Y. Williams, who had been interested in museums since childhood became the de facto curator; along with Brock. Over the ensuing years, Williams would take over the entire responsibility, since he had already been part of the Peabody Museum at Yale for three years and then the Museum in Ottawa for eight. Brock and Williams would build the collection with purchases and solicitations from various institutions and many people. Any kind of gift was accepted, as well as suitable materials, which included maps, models, anthropological and zoological specimens, which were all shown and displayed. Over time, the anthropological and zoological museum would become part of the university, with all the materials and collections given to them, thus leaving only the geological museum with various collections typical of that type of museum, with ores, fossils, relief molds, minerals, and some biological specimens that were distinctive living forms versus their forerunners.
