NAME: Harbeck, William H.
LIFE DATES: 1863? 09 __-1912 04 15.
BIRTHPLACE: Toledo, OH.
PLACE OF DATE: Atlantic Ocean near Newfoundland (sinking of SS Titanic).
WHERE/WHEN ACTIVE: Portland, OR Seattle, WA Vancouver, BC/1907 05 Victoria/1907 05 BC/1909 09, 1911 Pendleton, OR/1911.
STATUS: Commercial (cinematographer/visit).
BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: Harbeck's importance to British Columbia cinema emerged from three visits in 1907, 1909 and 1911. Only the 1907 footage survived, found in Australia in 1994 and eventually transferred to the Library and Archives Canada. According to Bottomore's thorough biography, before taking up filmmaking Harbeck had worked as " a bookkeeper, journalist [in Anaconda, Colorado], inventor, travelling book agent, baker, and owner of a steam laundry." (p. 27). Although it is unknown where
when he learned how to use a motion picture camera, the earliest record of his work
cinematographer was in 1906 when he filmed the aftermath of the San Francisco earthquake, possibly on assignment from the Miles Brothers (Bottomore, p. 27). He also filmed in Yellowstone National Park in 1906 for the Selig Polyscope Company, a Chicago company who had a cameraman named H.H. Buckwalter working out of Denver, Colorado, and who had shot a film in 1904 in the Cripple Creek mining district where Harbeck worked.
Harbeck's first visit to BC occurred in May 1907: on May 4 he visited
Victoria to film the city from a streetcar loaned by the B.C. Electric Railway Company. A member of the local tourist association also assisted his work by taking him to scenic locations in Victoria not served by the streetcar line. On May 5, 1907, after his day in Victoria where he shot 600 feet of film, he took the Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway to Nanaimo, and then by boat to Vancouver, where he planned to take the Canadian Pacific Railway as far as Lytton, compiling a further thousand feet
of film. He spent two days (May 6 and 7) filming Vancouver from another B.C. Electric Railway streetcar. The World article noted that he would also drive through Stanley Park in an automobile. The Province article hilariously described the effect of his filming on those who encountered the streetcar as " kinetoscopitis" . Both the Colonist and Vancouver World articles noted that Harbeck was working on behalf of the Hales Tourist Association of Portland, Oregon. Hale's Tours,
also known as Scenes of the World, was an early form of cinematic amusement in which customers experienced a simulated railway car ride, with the film projected in front of them. The 1907 Vancouver film shows the outside of the Vancouver outlet at 131 Cordova St., also known as the Edison Grand Theatre, which was operated by James D. Williams
(Bottomore, p. 30). In two articles on Hale's Tours and Vancouver theatres, the Moving Picture World noted that Williams was " now a leading Australian vaudeville and moving picture magnate" , which could explain how the Harbeck film of Vancouver and Victoria ended up in Australia.
Harbeck's fall 1909 visit to BC saw him filming more scenes along the line of the Canadian Pacific Railway, the results of which, combined with his 1907 footage, resulted in a 4,000 foot film that was exhibited at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition in Seattle (Bottomore, p. 33). Some of this footage depicting aspects of the C.P.R.'s operations between Victoria and Calgary was also shown in Revelstoke in early November 1909. During his 1909 trip, Harbeck also had himself and his camera photographed in front of
Takakkaw Falls, Yoho Valley, on October 1 (BVIPA HP017034).
Harbeck's 1911 trip to BC was a coastal voyage on one of the Grand Trunk Pacific Coastal Steamships. This trip was likely part of his journey to Alaska in July.
[DRAFT ENTRY TO BE COMPLETED WITH A SUMMARY OF HIS TRIP ON THE TITANIC]
Harbeck's body was recovered, returned to his mother (Mrs. Catherine Harbeck), who administered his estate, and he was buried in his birthplace. A photograph of his gravestone appears on the Encyclopedia Titanica Web site.
Harbeck married Catherine (Katie) L. Stetter in the 1880s and they had two sons, John S. and Stanley. John S. Harbeck, named after his grandfather, assisted hismother in gathering information from the Nova Scotia Deputy Provincial Secretary's office on the disposition of his father's personal effects, and the identity of the mysterious Mrs. Brownie Harbeck of Seattle, WA, who was also interested in Harbeck's effects and identified the owner of a purse Harbeck was carrying when he died.

Hoy, Chow Dong.
VARIANT: Hoy, C.D. (real name:
Chow, Dong Hoy).
LIFE DATES: 1883 08 16-1973 03 09.
BIRTHPLACE: Sui Soon
Lee (village), Hoi Ping district, Guangdong province, China.
PLACE OF DEATH:
WHERE/WHEN ACTIVE: Barkerville/1909 Quesnel/1911-1924?.
BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: Arriving in Vancouver, BC, in
1902 on the Empress of China, Hoy moved to Quesnel in 1903 where he
hoped employment prospects were better than being a houseboy in Vancouver.
After a variety of work experiences in the region, he moved to Barkerville in
1909. According to Moosang's biography, Hoy appears to have taught himself
photography that year to supplement his income as a watch repairer and barber.
Hoy returned to China in 1910 to marry but his wife was unable to return with him
to Quesnel until 1917. In 1911 Hoy worked for the Moffat and then the Webster
family as a farmhand and began photographing again. He permanently established
his family in Quesnel in 1917 and photographed there and in Barkerville until
the early 1920s. According to Moosang, his portrait photography was a sideline
operated out of his general store.
Hoy photographed Chinese, Caucasian and
Natives in both interior and exterior poses. Some of Hoy's work is highly
reminiscent of Frank Matsura's portraits from Okanogan County, Washington
State, as well as with August Sander's (1876-1964) ethnographic photography
in Germany in the 1910s and 1920s.
The Hoy family donated his negatives to Barkerville Historic Town in
1990. An exhibit honouring C.D. Hoy's contribution to photography and the
region, organized by Faith Moosang, toured the province in 1999-2000. Her 1999
biography was shortlisted for two year 2000 BC Book Prizes
categories. Faith Moosang also co-directed the documentary
video Chow Dong Hoy: Portraits from the Frontier (Make Believe Media,
