From : Royal BC Museum website: Ron Greene has been interested in the Colonial period for many years, doing a study of Macdonald & Co. bankers over fifty years ago. Among his interests are photographs and his presentation will discuss and show photographs by the talented photographer, Carlo Gentile, who was a photographer in Victoria from October 1863 until August 1866.  He accompanied British Columbia Governor Frederick Seymour into the interior of British Columbia in 1865, and later the same year visited Quesnel and Williams Creek, travelling on both the Harrison Lake to Lillooet route and the recently completed Fraser Canyon route. Come and see these beautiful and technically accomplished early photographs of BC. Ronald Greene is a life-long resident of Victoria.  He obtained a degree at the University of British Columbia in Chemical Engineering.  Later, in his spare time he obtained another degree from the University of Victoria in Japanese Studies and French. Ron has served in many volunteer positions, recently as President of the B.C. Historical Federation and of the Victoria Historical Society

Aborigines' Protection Society: Humanitarian Imperialism in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Canada, South Africa, and the Congo, 1836-1909, Heartfield, James
19 Heartfield, James Aborigines' Protection Society: Humanitarian Imperialism in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Canada, South Africa, and the Congo, 1836-1909
0199327408 / 9780199327409 
For more than seventy years, the Aborigines' Protection Society, a select group of the great and the good, fought for the natives of the British Empire and against the tide of white supremacy to defend the interests of aboriginal peoples everywhere. Active on four continents, the Society brought the Zulu King Cetshwayo to meet Queen Victoria, and Maori rebels to the Lord Mayor's banqueting hall. The Society's supporters were denounced by senior British Army officers and white settlers as Zulu-lovers, 'so-called friends of the Aborigines', and even traitors. The book tells the story of the three-cornered fight among the Colonial Office, the settlers and the natives that shaped the Empire and the pivotal role that the Society played, persuading the authorities to limit settlers' claims in the name of native interests. Against expectations, the policy of native protection turned out to be one of the most important reasons for the growth of Imperial rule. James Heartfield's comparative study of native protection policies in Southern Africa, the Congo, New Zealand, Fiji, Australia, and Canada explains how those who held the best of intentions ended up unwittingly championing further colonisation. Pointing to the wreckage of humanitarian imperialism today, Heartfield sets out to understand its roots in the beliefs and practices of its nineteenth-century equivalents.
