Name of creator
Goddard, Joan M. (b. [19-?] - d. 2015)
Joan Goddard was a Victoria-born naturalist who, in the 1990s, did extensive research including interviews on the British Columbia whaling industry. Her mother’s stories about growing up on a whaling station on Vancouver Island where her maternal grandfather had been manager of several whaling stations on Vancouver Island lead her to an interest in this aspect of British Columbia’s history. Joan Goddard published “A Window on Whales and Whaling” in 1997 about whaling in B.C. and subsequently continued her extensive research. She also served as a board director of the Maritime Museum of British Columbia Society. Joan past away in October 2015 and her son James (Jim) Goddard has donated her research.
