History
VASES BELONGED TO DONOR'S PARENTS, ONE OF WHICH ACQUIRED THEM ON A TRIP TO INDIA. DONOR RELATES THAT THE PAIR OF VASES SAT ON TOP OF THE FAMILY PIANO. REV. NAKAYAMA AND HIS FAMILY MOVED TO COALDALE IN 1945 AFTER BEING RELOCATED FROM VANCOUVER IN 1942 TO SLOCAN CITY IN THE INTERIOR OF BRITISH COLUMBIA. AT COALDALE HE FOUNDED THE ANGLICAN CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION WHERE HE WAS RECTOR FROM 1945 TO 1970. FROM AUGUST 29 TO 31, 2011 COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED THE DONOR, JOY KOGAWA, ABOUT HER MEMORIES ASSOCIATED WITH SPECIFIC OBJECTS THAT SHE DONATED IN 1997. OF THIS ARTIFACT, KOGAWA SAID: “THEY WERE ALWAYS THERE ON TOP OF THE PIANO, BOTH OF THOSE… IN COALDALE, AND PROBABLY IN SLOCAN… I THINK THIS IS SOMETHING DAD PICKED UP SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE... I DON’T KNOW IF HE GOT THEM IN INDIA OR WHERE HE GOT THEM.” SEE RECORD P19970041001 FOR EXPANDED BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION AND PERMANENT FILE FOR FURTHER HISTORY.
