Correspondence with, and relating to, Margaret Peterson regarding paintings purchased by George Piternick. Correspondents include Peterson, Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, and a film production company making a documentary about the artist, and others, dating from 1967-1968. The four paintings by Peterson owned by Piternick were donated to the UBC Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery by Anne Piternick.
The collection is comprised of an envelope addressed to Mr. and Mrs. Richard Hunter (Frances Hunter) from Esme Davis, and is decorated with a painting by Davis. Davis, who was born in France, attended St. Martin's School of Art in London and the Royal Academy, before relocating to Victoria (British Columbia) in 1949.
The collection consists of published articles and photographs with commentary by Peter M. McAllister concerning the Great Bear Rainforest Campaign which began in 1990 to protect what is now called the Great Bear Rainforest, a temperate rainforest of approximately 64,000 km2 on the North-Central Coast of British Columbia.
