Guest Speaker: Jennifer L. Butler
Telegraph Cove, on northern Vancouver Island, started as a telegraph line-shack in 1912. Jennifer L. Butler’s presentation explores the culturally diverse stories of women who lived in the Cove, a community with a peak population of 60 people. Their stories reflect isolation, resourcefulness and humour. Jennifer will also discuss her research, which included access to private collections and the BC Archives.
Jennifer L. Butler is the Great-Granddaughter of Mame and Duke Wastell, who originally bought and named Telegraph Cove. She is also a technical writer for Canada’s academic research sector and lives in Vancouver.
