About the KMA Archives

KMA Photo 10008: John Fremont Smith and family, pre-1916.

The KMA’s archives contains a large range of materials that describe, depict, and interpret life in Kamloops. These records include photographs, books, papers, maps, architectural drawings, and newspapers.

Archival collections are arranged into groups of materials based on their donor (called an archival collection or fonds), or based on format. Each catalogued collection or fonds has a finding aid that describes each collection in detail.

Finding aids are currently available in searchable PDF format, and a dynamic catalogue database is currently in progress. Please note that not all of the KMA’s archival material has been catalogued! For additional assistance searching the KMA’s archival collection please contact the Archivist.
