Biografie

Derrick Mallard was born in 1921 in England. In 1953, he emigrated to B.C. and worked in the Engineering Dept. of the B.C. Power Commission and B.C. Hydro. After leaving B.C. Hydro he taught at S.F.U in the Department of Psychology, lecturing on human acoustics and electronic physiological measurements. Throughout his life, Derrick was involved in many projects relating to a broad spectrum of environmental concerns, including waste management, preservation of significant ecosystems, climate change and energy conservation.

Derrick and his wife Gwen started S.P.E.C. (Society for Promoting Environmental Conservation), the first citizens environmental organization in western Canada, with Bernard Hagell, Dr. Robin Harger, John Haywood, Ralph Lundahl, Larry McConnell, John Stigant, Dr. A. Turnbull and others in Vancouver, January 1969. In 1972, the Mallards severed ties with S.P.E.C., moved to Victoria and started C.A.S.E. (Citizens Association to Save the Environment), which they directed until their deaths. The Mallards were among the first in B.C. to speak on behalf of the environment and to enlist widespread public support. In 1992, they were awarded the Joint Environmental Award from the B.C. Minister of the Environment, Lands and Parks; in 1993, they were awarded the Lifetime Environmental Achievement Award by the Canadian Minister of the Environment. Derrick died in 2001.

Ordening

The Alpha-Numeric system was established by Derrick Mallard in the early years of his environmental work. The files, the majority of which were un-filed, constitute the Mallards’ research materials relating to their C.A.S.E. work. These have been arranged in series reflecting the subject groupings of his early alpha-numeric system. Administrative files relating to C.A.S.E. have been arranged in the B.C. Environmental Associations series.

Approximately 300 reports and publications have been transferred to Special Collections, and cataloged as the Derrick Mallard Collection. They are on a wide variety of environmental subjects, including: water, sewage, transportation, parks, farming, noise, fishing, endangered species and global issues.
