Name of creator
Cuthbert Norman Clark was born 6 Aug 1895 in Vancouver, British Columbia. His father was Robert Clark (1845-1909), an entrepreneur born in Scotland and who immigrated to Canada in 1861. Robert Clark was active in business on the west coast of Canada and the United States before settling in Vancouver in 1886, where he would sit on City Council and the Vancouver Board of Trade.
In 1928 Cuthbert Clark took his family on a vacation from Edmonton to northern British Columbia to visit the Kitwanga Totems and back through the Kettle Valley, BC.
Cuthbert Clark died in 1970 and is buried in Vancouver’s Mountain View Cemetery

The donor was informed by mail that the material had been sent to the City of Edmonton Archives.
The photos were inherited by Roger Phillippe from his father Vernon Phillippe, who received them from Dr. Cuthbert Clark, for whom he acted as a business manager.
