British Columbia Notable Artists Without WikiTree Profiles

You can add profiles for British Columbia notables starting with information from:

The Canadian Encyclopedia
The Dictionary of Canadian Biography
or other sources.

See also: Artists from British Columbia

Name Notable As
E. J. HughesPainter
Henry HuntSculptor (carver)
Tony Hunt Sr.Sculptor (carver)
Godfrey StephensSculptor (carver)
Len NorrisPolitical cartoonist

Please list each person's date and place of birth and death and at least a short biography explaining why the person is important.

Once a profile for a BC Notable has been added to WikiTree, there are a few things which need to be added:

Sticker: {{British Columbian Sticker}} The British Columbian sticker marks this person as an early or significant British Columbian.
Privacy: The privacy level should be set to "Open" for deceased notables. (Please do not add living notables. Contact the leaders of the Canada Project for guidance on this issue.)
Sources: There should be a link under "See also:" to that person's entry in Wikipedia, the Canadian Encyclopedia, the Dictionary of Canadian Biography, KnowBC, or some similar source (and, in the case of people who are listed on Wikipedia, there needs to be a link to their Wikidata entry, and the WikiTree ID needs to be entered into their Wikidata entry). Use these to create Wikipedia links:
  • * Wikipedia: [[wikipedia:Person_Name|Person Name]]
  • * {{Wikidata|Q1234567|enwiki}}
Categories: The appropriate categories should be added: places of birth, longtime residence, and death, occupation(s), honours received, etc.

British Columbia Notable Artists In Need Of Improvement

Even once a profile has been added to WikiTree, it often needs further improvement:

a narrative biography
at least one primary source
at least one non-copyrighted picture of that person
and a connection to the global tree.

(If you see links at the bottom of the profile listing how many degrees that person is from King Henry VIII and two other people, then their profile is connected to the main tree. To find out more about getting a profile connected to the main tree, see the Connectors Project page.)

Please review the list below and see if you can assist by improving upon one or more of the profiles.

Do you think Platon von Ustinov merits this category? He exhibited extensively in Vancouver and the region in the 1930s into the 1950s, at least. This is the most complete page on him on the BC Artists site: (He was the uncle of the British actor Peter Ustinov.) Thanks, ~ Paul
