Noel Robinson: Military Serviceman, BC Historian, Playwright, Journalist

Curated by James Gibson

The exhibit features the history of Noel Robinson (1880-1966), a local journalist who wrote about prominent figures and events in Vancouver. The exhibit highlights Robinson’s articles on Pauline Johnson, Joe Fortes, and many other famous Vancouver personalities during the time of the Roeddes. While Gustav Roedde found himself in the news during WWI, he was not written about by Noel – find out why when you visit the exhibit!
