Online Lecture: “Lest We Forget”

“Lest We Forget” is a unique scrapbook created in the 1970’s by Ruth Masters, to commemorate the men from the Comox Valley who died in the First and Second World Wars. Ruth spent years researching each individual and created pages of photographs and clippings pertaining to their lives. It is a massive book: 21 inches high, 13 inches wide and 8 inches thick. Although the book has held up remarkably well, it is a heavily accessed item and there has been accumulated damage over the years. A major problem was that the adhesive had liquified causing pages, and items, to stick together. This presentation discusses the challenges of conserving the original book and the process of creating a facsimile copy for future use.

Live Lecture: Adventures with A Juvenile Elasmosaur

The summer of 2020 was a time of discovery for the Courtenay and District Museum. The bones of a juvenile elasmosaur were discovered in the bank of the Trent River. Thanks to museum staff and community volunteers, this 85 million year old fossil was safely delivered from a 12 m high cliff to the Courtenay Museum. Rescued from certain loss due to erosion, this important specimen took two months to excavate and several months of careful cleaning and preparation.
