History

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.
