Development

This series consists of the developmental stages of the Packers on the Trail project undertaken by Jay Sherwood and Ross Peck, who are avid and valued researchers for the Hudson's Hope Museum. This series also includes documents detailing the promotion and awards that were created and presented for this project. This series is arranged into four sub-series: Funding, Jay Sherwood Research, Committee Meetings, and Promotion.

Donor material

The Packers on the Trail project owes part of its success to the generous donations. Both photographs and stories were donated to the Hudson’s Hope Museum to help bring life to the artifacts and textual material that made up the exhibit. The contribution of anecdotes from those involved or connected to the Bedaux expedition are key to really experiencing the cowboys journey through story. The photographs donated by Madeline Carlson and Norm Busche helped to show the social life as well as the outside view of the expedition and the members. This series is arranged into two sub-series: Interviews, and Photographs.

Interviews

This sub-series consist of audio copies on CD of interviews done by Jay Sherwood to record the stories of the Bedaux cowboy’s relatives. They are stories from; Robin Philips daughter of Jack Bocock, Bev Field daughter of Bob McCorkell, Arlene Myers granddaughter of Bob Beattie, Jesse Miller daughter of Del Miller, Mary (Girlie) Powell daughter of Jim Beattie, Ross MacLean brother or Art MacLean, Robin Pickell daughter of Cecil Pickell, and Lyle Westgaard who played host to the Bedaux expedition members. The sub-series is arranged into eight files: Robin Philips, Bev Field, Arlene Myers, Jessie (Miller), Mary (Girlie) Powell, Ross MacLean, Robin Pickell, and Lyle Westgaard.

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.
