Positioning the Missionary: John Booth Good and the Confluence of Cultures in Nineteenth-Century British Columbia

By Brett Christophers | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

I acknowledge with gratitude the support of a University Graduate Fellowship for the duration of my studies at the University of British Columbia.

Many people have contributed to the completion of this book. Much of my initial research was carried out at the Vancouver School of Theology, where Anglican archivist Doreen Stephens introduced me to the records of the Columbia Mission. At UBC Press, Jean Wilson believed in the project in its early stages and gave me great encouragement to progress, while Randy Schmidt has been an attentive and diligent editor. I also thank cartographer Eric Leinberger.

I owe a tremendous debt to Cole Harris, who supervised the thesis around which this book took shape. One of my earliest memories of British Columbia is of a field trip Cole led to the Fraser Canyon in the fall of 1993, when he spoke about the region's past with a passion and humanity that inspired me to focus my work on precisely the issues he raised. Over the next few years he became a close friend and a tireless critic, scouring successive drafts of both the thesis and the book with a thoroughness for which I was initially unprepared, later receptive, and ultimately enormously grateful.

Several other people read and helped to improve the text. I especially thank Dan Clayton, a constant provider of generous and constructive advice. Two close readings of my thesis--by John Barker and Derek Gregory--helped me to realize just how much work had to be done to turn it into a book. Averil Cameron and David Ley were invaluable commentators on Chapter 2, as was Kamala Todd on Chapter 6. And both of my reviewers offered material suggestions at an important stage in the book's development. Any remaining shortcomings are of course entirely my own responsibility.

My decision to prolong my stay in Canada to write this book was made considerably easier by the friendships I made in Vancouver. In addition to those I have already mentioned, my thanks go to Trina Bester, Terry
