Voices of BC: J.W. Inglis

Every time I think about the Imbert Orchard Collection in the BC Archives I am so grateful that we have such a treasure. Imbert Orchard was a CBC Radio producer who travelled the province in the 1950's and 60's with engineer Ian Stephen, collecting interviews with elders.

Robert Budd is a historian based in Victoria who has been working with the Orchard Collection for a few years now.  He's published a book containing some of the great stories from the tapes and now presents a regular feature on NXNW where we get to hear voices from BC's past.

In this episode you'll hear about some of the early history of Lumby from J.W. Inglis.
