One hundred years of The Beaver. Read ’em and weep. HBC’s black-gold era. Ship search needed.
Congratulations on a superb 100th-anniversary issue (October–November 2020). It is so refreshing and so important to see the richness of the archives viewed through a new perspective and to see Indigenous experience and knowledge brought to the fore. (I’ve read about the Names and Knowledge Initiative before, and it was wonderful to see so many names of the individuals pictured.) This is a valuable contribution to the national conversation. Congratulations to everyone involved. As a former trade magazine editor, I can imagine the amount of planning and work that went in to this issue. And, at a much more modest level, I’m really delighted that my own contribution was able to be part of this issue.
