Hilary Stewart Acceptance of the Margaret and James F. Pendergast Award (en anglais seulement)

Dear Mr. Pendergast,

It is with great pleasure and delightful memories that I write you to express my appreciation in receiving the Canadian Archaeological Association award which carries the Pendergast name.

I was surprised, but very delighted, that I should have been chosen to receive this prestigious award - it means a lot to me and now hangs on my studio wall with pride.

Attending the feast that memorable evening, and watching the dramatic and excellent dancing of the well-costumed First Nations people in their longhouse, was a special aspect of the evening.

I would like to extend my thanks also to those who took care of my every need, especially those who made the long drives to and from Campbell river enjoyable transportion.

With much appreciation and my warmest thanks,


Hilary Stewart
