Note sur la collection
Nom du producteur
Elmer Wilcox (1900-1982) was born on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick. He loved his home, and spent many hours photographing its birds, flowers, and unique rock formations. Around 1962, Elmer and L. Keith Ingersoll (d. 1993) began a collection of natural history materials. Together they were the force behind the building of the Grand Manan Museum in 1967 to display their collections. Both men held positions on the Museum Board and worked in the museum on displays.
The collection continues to grow as articles are donated by curators, archivists, and board members as new research is published.

L. Keith Ingersoll and Elmer Wilcox were responsible for creating a collection of natural historical materials (which they began to assemble around 1962), and were largely responsible for the creation of the Grand Manan Museum in 1967. Keith became a well-known historian, newspaperman, author, museologist, teacher, and friend of many. Additionally, he served on the Museum Board and worked on museum displays. After leaving Grand Manan, Keith worked for the New Brunswick Museum in Saint John.
Historique de la conservation
The Grand Manan Natural History Collection was started by Grand Manan Museum Curators - Elmer Wilcox and Keith Ingersoll in their positions as curators at the Grand Manan Museum. The files were collected and preserved as part of their work. The collection is open to new accruals as the natural history of Grand Manan is recorded.
