    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: Norgate was an architect and artist living in Victoria who accompanied an exploring expedition sponsored by The Province newspaper of northern Vancouver Island (Province Exploring Expedition). The Rev. William Washington Bolton, leader of this expedition and a subsequent one two years later which included professional photographer Edgar Fleming, kept a journal of the group's travels. Rev. Bolton referred to Norgate's use of a "kodak" at Fort Rupert on 20 Jul 1894 (BVIPA MS-2777; BVIPA photo no. H-05541). The newspaper published a complete account of the 1894 expedition based on letters and additional writings submitted by Rev. Bolton following his return.
