Mr. Sherwood is also a well published and prominent Vancouver author who worked to edit and preserve the authenticity of the language throughout the publication of the new edition of "Bannock and Beans".

Mr. Sherwood traveled to the Library and Archives Canada in Ottawa and to the Glenbow Museum; his indexing of the captions for the photos from the Bob White photo album are included in this sub-series along with an excerpt from Bob White’s account of freighting on the Bedaux Expedition. This sub-series is arranged into two files: Bob White Photos at Glenbow, and the Bedaux Freight outfit on upper Muskwa.

Funding

This series consists of the acknowledgment of the financial support from government agencies that helped make this project such a success. The BC150 Heritage Legacy Fund (BC150HLF) was the main contributor with additional assistance from the Writers' Union of Canada. The BC150HLF was supported by the Province of BC to help communities celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of the province. It financed projects that highlighted BC’s History from 1858 to 2008 and as the Bedaux expedition was a marker for BC history, a grant application submitted by museum manager, Rosaleen Boardman, was successful. The Writers' Union of Canada, that works to improve the position of Canadian writers, contributed travel assistance to authors to attend the exhibit opening. The forms for the grant requests are included in this sub-series. This sub-series is arranged into two files: BC150 Legacy fund, and Writers' Union of Canada funding.
