Defining the Modern Museum: A Case Study of the Challenges of Exchange, by Lianne McTavish; Toronto, University of Toronto Press, 2013, page 121: “The next curator was another local artist, William Ferris, who made paintings and drawings, including some featuring scenes of the city of Vancouver. In his annual report of 1916, Ferris explained how he had attempted to rationalize the diverse items in the collections, installing glass shelves in the bird cases, placing images of ferns on the east-end wall, and mounting 150 specimens of British Columbia flora on the wall of the board room. He removed what he called ‘much useless matter’ from the City Museum and attempted to reorganize the remaining material.”
