Description : A spectacular blanket, woven by contemporary Musqueam artists Debra and Robyn Sparrow, was commissioned by the Museum in 1997 and installed in 1999. Since 1927, the University of British Columbia (UBC) has collected ethnographic material. In 1947, this material was brought together to form the founding collections of the new Museum of Anthropology, which opened in the basement of UBC,s main library in 1949. In its early years, MOA was directed by Dr. Harry Hawthorn, the first anthropologist appointed to the University faculty. His wife, Dr. Audrey Hawthorn, served as the first curator. MOA,s collections remained in the library until 1976, when they were moved to their current location.
