Our Archive Collection

What are archives?

Archival materials are usually original, unique and unpublished documents which are judged to be of permanent significance. They are preserved because they illustrate issues of administrative, legal, historical or cultural significance.

Archives are frequently associated with textual materials such as correspondence, diaries and manuscripts.  However, archival records may be in any medium including photographs, maps, architectural drawings, video and audio files, and computer disks.

What’s in the collection?

Our Archives hold a variety of interesting documents and over 200,000 photographs. This includes items such as a copy of the first Whistler Question newspaper ever produced, Myrtle Philip's personal correspondence, papers of the Garibalidi Olympic Development Committee, and early forestry maps.

How do I research at the archives?

Members of the public are welcome to come and read at our archives any time Tuesday-Saturday between the hours of 11-5.  
Appointments must be made in advance. Please contact the Collection Manager at archives@whistlermuseum.org or phone 604.932.2019.
