Author Tags: Local History
Cooperatively produced and edited by the late Peggy Schofield, a community activist and a former Dunbar Residents' Association president, The Story of Dunbar (Ronsdale $39.95) is 441-page volume that arose from interviews with more than 300 local residents. Prior to her death in 2005, Schofield spearheaded a "Documenting Dunbar" project. Celebrating people rather than Chamber of Commerce accomplishments, this feel-good summary of “voices of a Vancouver neighbourhood” contains many photos not previously published. Both playful and respectful, it owes its origins to teamwork from contributing writers that include Pam Chambers, Vivien Clarke, Shelagh Lindsey, Beryl March, Angus McIntyre, Larry Moore, Margaret Moore, Peggy Schofield, Helen Spiegelman and Joan Tyldesley. 1-55380-040-0
