Abbotsford resident receives award from B.C. Historical Federation

Bill Glasgow honoured for work on British Columbia History magazine

The British Columbia Historical Federation (BCHF) has announced that Abbotsford resident Bill Glasgow from William Glasgow Design is the recipient of the 2019 Award of Appreciation.

The BCHF’s Award of Appreciation is presented to individuals who have given exceptional service to the BCHF either for a specific project or for long service.

Glasgow designs British Columbia History magazine, the BCHF’s flagship publication, a quarterly magazine chronicling British Columbia’s unique story through the words and images of community writers, archivists, museum professionals and academic historians. He provides these services at a non-profit rate.

Glasgow has designed over 100 local history books and memoirs about BC’s history, often on a volunteer basis.

The federation says that his imprint on B.C. history, from a quiet place behind the scenes, has been “impressive and will be long-lasting.”

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the BCHF annual conference scheduled for June, including the awards gala, has been cancelled.

Thus, the prizes are being announced early and plans are in the works for ways to honour winners during the BCHF conference in 2021, with details to be announced.

The BCHF encourages interest in the history of B.C. through research, presentation, and support in its role as an umbrella organization for provincial historical societies.

Established in 1922, the federation currently provides a collective voice for more than 100 member societies and 24,000 individuals in the provincial not-for-profit historical sector.
