The Chinook Country Historical Society presents a Lecture on Eric Harvie at Glenbow for Historic Calgary Week!

Lawyer, oilman, soldier, philanthropist, collector; Eric Lafferty Harvie was all of these things. He was also the founder of Glenbow Museum and the guiding force behind its first collections. Beginning with Western Canadian history and art, those collections would grow to include objects as diverse as medieval armour, South American feather work, Indonesian puppets, Coptic scrolls, and African house posts. It would also grow into the largest art collection in Western Canada. Join Daryl Betenia, Glenbow's Manager, Collections, as she talks about the history and evolution of collecting at Glenbow.
