78 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).

85 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: Like many Europeans immigrants, he was lured to North American by tales of easy money. Frank left his hometown in 1892 for San Francisco and moved to Victoria two years later. He finally settled in Alberni with his younger brother Bernard who joined him in 1898. Both men took out their Canadian naturalization papers, Leonard in 1897 and Bernard in 1899. They worked some mineral claims together on Vancouver Island and it probably around 1898 that Leonard also started his photographic career. His father had operated a studio in Berne, Germany.
Likely as a result of anti-German sentiment during World War One, the Frank brothers relocated to Vancouver between 1916 and 1917. Leonard established a brief partnership with Orville J. Rognon between 1918 and 1919 as the Commercial Photo Company. Frank continued to operate under that name until about 1926-1927 when he started using his own name for the business.
Leonard Frank Photos established an enviable reputation as industrial and commercial photographers and Leonard Frank continued photographing almost until he died. Otto Landauer acquired Leonard Frank Photos in 1946 which he operated under that name until 1980. Leonard and Bernard Frank, who never married, are buried in the Jewish Schara Tzedeck Cemetery near Vancouver.
For a complete review of Leonard Frank's career, see Cyril E. Leonoff's book An Enterprising Life (1990). A documentary film about Frank's life, Copyright, Leonard Frank (1999), provides additional information. 
Frank, Leonard Juda (I1303)
86 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A "G. Diken", possibly a typo for G.P. Dicker, is listed under this firm.  Universal Arts (I658)
87 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A 1911 Canada census listing intriguingly describes a George W. Knowling who was born in Manitoba in Nov 1889 and resided as a lodger (illegible address). His occupation was also illegible but does not appear to be one connected with photography. The 1911 provincial voters list gave his occupation as a photographer. Knowling, George William John (I1156)
88 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A brief partnership between Anders Beer Wilse, a Norwegian immigrant and former engineer who worked on the construction of the Great Northern Railroad, he took up photography in 1897, initially with Daniel W. Kirk, and then purchased the business from him that year. Wilse and Kirk (I709)
89 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A British correspondent from the Pall Mall Gazette, he was described as

A capital photographer, [who] secured several fine views of the city from the top of the C.P.R. hotel, and some of the hotel itself and the big trees on the Brighouse estate [now Vancouver's West End].
Norman, Henry (I101)
90 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A brother of J.D. Hall and manager of the Hudson's Bay Company store, Port Simpson, he was listed (probably mistakenly and with an incorrect first name) as a photographer with the Vancouver Photo Company. R.H. Hall was elected a member of the BC legislature in 1890 for the Cassiar district. Shortly after he had retired from the HBC about 1913 he moved from Winnipeg where he had been Fur Commissioner for Canada to Prince Albert, SK. Hall, Robert Hanley (I174)
91 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A brother of William James Topley (1845-1930) who took over the Ottawa studio of William Notman in 1872, H.N. Topley often photographed for the Geological Survey of Canada. He photographed the Alaska/Canada boundary in the early summer 1894, as well as scenes in BC. Historian David R. Richeson found a Public Works letter register entry for the Topley Studio sale of $33 of views of the Yukon District in 1900 (OOA, RG 11, vol. 1998, entry March 26/1). H.N. Topley was later employed by the Department of the Interior. Topley, Horatio Nelson (I716)
92 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A brother of William McFarlane and Charles F., he accompanied and assisted the former on his first and second trips to BC. Notman, George R.W. (I102)
93 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A brother of William McFarlane and George R.W., he passed through BC and stopped in Vancouver; he assisted W.M. Notman. C.F. Notman acquired the Notman studio upon W.M. Notman's death and in April 1935 sold the business, along with 400,000 negatives, to Associated Screen News. Notman, Charles F. (I746)
94 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A California native, he worked for I.W. Taber & Company and was reported to have visited Glacier Bay in Jul 1889 where he might have taken a photograph of the mirage known as The Silent City. This image was published in Chapter 10 of Badlam's aptly titled The Wonders of Alaska (1891).

Husher's adventurous spirit was revealed in April 1887 when he made a balloon ascent over San Francisco on behalf of his employer. The Photographic News reported on his trip in its 8 Jul 1887 issue.

In 1888, a year before he visited Alaska, Husher was employed as a photographer on an archaeological expedition to the American Southwest.

Husher went on to found the Detroit Photograpic (Publishing) Company in 1895 which introduced the Photochrom colour photomechanical printing process into the U.S. Husher left the company in 1902 and it went bankrupt in 1924 and closed in 1932. 
Husher, Edwin H. (I710)
95 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A Canadian customs official posted to the Klondike during the gold rush, he photographed the last spike ceremony for the White Pass and Yukon Railroad on 6 Jul 1899. E.A. Hegg, who also photographed the event, captured Scott and two other photographers at work. In this photograph, Busby appears on the wharf with a handheld camera. Busby retired to Vancouver in 1930 and moved to eastern Canada in 1945. Busby identified himself in a souvenir album published by Hegg (1900) which Busby presented to the Rev. B.A. Appleyard (BVIPA copy). Busby, Edward Scott (I476)
96 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A civil engineer and surveyor by trade, he spent four years travelling and working at his profession in the Yukon Territory during the Klondike Gold Rush. He returned to Tacoma in 1900, and was later mayor of Steilacoom. Sarvant, Henry Mason (I46)
97 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A civil engineer employed by the Canadian Pacific Railway, he photographed along the railway line and took a portrait of the BC senators and "commoners" on a stopover in Victoria in Jun 1885. Heckman, Joseph William (I192)
98 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A commercial photographer in Halifax, he relocated to Victoria after the 1917 explosion. By 1927 he operated under the name Commercial Photo Service and Portrait Studio. Goodenough, Frederick G. (I1113)
99 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A credit on a photo is the only evidence of his existence. Spinks W.H. (I59)
100 BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: A daughter of Hannah and Richard Maynard, she was married to James F. Macdonald (1852-1912) at the time of the 1881 census. Her age is given as 21, occupation, photographer, no doubt an assistant to her mother or father. She and her husband, from whom she filed for divorce in Jun 1892, had three children: Harry Hatherly Macdonald and Maynard Macdonald, and a third child, Albert James Macdonald, living with Richard and Hannah Maynard at the time Emma died. Her portrait appears in a few of her mother's multiple exposure tableaux. Macdonald, Emma (I829)
