Exhibit Opening Soon: Them Days, Stories of Early Labrador

Story posted November 07, 2000

Them Days, Stories of Early Labrador, a new exhibit, will open November 14 at The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum Foyer, Hubbard Hall. This exhibit, which will replace Working Through the Ice: The Bowdoin and the Effie M. Morrissey, will run through March 11, 2001.

The exhibit brings together Donald B. MacMillan’s photographs of Labrador with residents’ reminiscences about what life was like in the early part of the 20th century. The images and stories illustrate the rich history of this little-known region of Canada. The stories were originally published in Them Days, a magazine of Labrador history that has been collecting and publishing oral histories of Labrador since 1975. Them Days has routinely used MacMillan’s photographs to accompany its narratives through a collaborative agreement between the magazine and the Arctic Museum.

The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., and is closed Mondays. For more information call 725-3416.
