146 BIOGARPHICAL SUMMARY: A teacher and writer, Cameron reported on an amusing bicycling tour which she photographed. Among the achievements for which she is remembered were her appointment as the first woman teacher of a high school in the province (1890), as well as the first woman principal of a school (1894). In 1908 she made a 10,000 mile journey with her niece Jessie Cameron Brown up the Mackenzie River to the Arctic Circle. Cameron's account of this adventure was published as The New North (1910) and was illustrated with photographs taken by her and her niece. They did not pass through any part of British Columbia.
For a full account of her remarkable career and achievements, refer to Cathy Converse's Against the Current (2018).

147 BIOGRAPHICAL DIRECTORY: During his time in Halifax, NS, he operated a photo studio with another sailor. After World War One he trained further in photography through a veterans' industrial training plan. Around Sep 1919, following his service with the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve (RCNVR), he took over E.F. Tucker's Chilliwack studio. While his specialty was portraits, he also produced postcards. He advertised extensively in the Chilliwack Progress, only a small sampling of which are included here.
In Apr 1920 he was joined by Alexander Wilson, a former commercial and military photographer who had also served in World War One. Wilson became Dowsett's business partner.
In Nov 1920 during a banquet for visiting Canadian Prime Minister Arthur Meighan, the Dowsett Studio was praised for photograph of the reception party by the prime minister.
Dowsett and Wilson dissolved their partnership at the end of Jan 1921.
In Dec 1922 the Chilliwack Progress reported that a RCNVR colleague, T.W. Platt, was now a financial backer of the Dowsett Studio. There are no newspaper ads in the Chilliwack Progress under the name Dowsett after the end of 1923. In his U.S. naturalization declaration he states he crossed the border with his family at Sumas, WA, on 28 Oct 1923. According to his border entry card his destination was Tacoma, WA.
By 1930 he was living in Tacoma, WA, but no longer a photographer according to the U.S. census that year. He declared his intention to become a U.S. citizen in 1935 and registered, though nearly a senior citizen, for the U.S. military draft in 1942. 
Dowsett, Charles Frederick (I1438)

Barclay's photographs were destroyed in 1939 when his house burned down during a massive forest fire. Marshall (1998) states that he lived in Manitoba.
He was living and working as photographer in Orford, Kent County, ON, in 1891.
Marshall (1998: 28) includes a self-portrait.
