Scope and Content

The five diverse pamphlets and publications primarily document certain architecturally-related events during Vancouver's explosive growth through the 1950s. Included are a fund-raising campaign brochure for the expansion of the Vancouver Art Gallery, 1949-1951, and an invitation to the inauguration of the Frederick Lasserre Architecture and Fine Arts Building at the University of British Columbia (UBC). The building was constructed by architects Thompson, Berwick, Pratt in 1957-1958, but officially opened in 1962 after the death of Lasserre (1911-1961), UBC's first director of the school of architecture. The series also includes "Project '58", a relatively rare privately-printed pamphlet given to Rhodri Windsor-Liscombe by architect Geoffrey Massey. Written by Wells Coates, with Massey, Arthur Erickson, Peter Oberlander, and E.J. Watkins, the illustrated proposal recommended the creation of a local urban-design centre in 1958 to forestall the rise of private development through the implimentation of a master plan strategy for Vancouver.

Material in this series was produced between 1946 and 1962. Series contains a pamphlet, invitation brochures and publications.
