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
