Shimizu Family accession

Kosaburo Shimizu was born in Japan in 1893 and immigrated to British Columbia in 1907 where he was employed as a houseboy while attending the Royal City High School. Upon high school graduation in 1913 he taught English at the New Westminster Japanese Methodist Church. Though his father wanted him to join the workforce to help support the family, Kosaburo Shimizu was determined to attend university. Though he debated attending university in Japan, when he learned that he would be subject to conscription if he returned to the country he decided to stay in North America.

Kosaburo Shimizu attended UBC in 1915 and continued his studies with an M.A. in English Literature from Harvard University in 1924. He was later ordained as a United Church minister and became the pastor of the Vancouver Japanese United Church in 1926. Throughout the 20’s and 30’s he worked to increase the Japanese Christian fellowship and bridge rifts between generations and cultures. During the Second World War Shimizu was relocated by the federal government to an internment camp in Kaslo B.C. After the war he moved to Toronto where he met and married his wife Hide Shimizu (née Hyodo) and founded the Japanese United Church’s work in the Church of all Nations.

Hide Shimizu was born in Vancouver on May 11, 1908 to parents Hideichi Hyodo and Toshi Hyodo. Hide completed her grade school education and teacher’s training in Vancouver, B.C. By the age of 18, she was the first and only Japanese Canadian to hold a teaching certificate. From 1926-1944 she taught classes of Japanese Canadian students at Lord Byng school in Steveston, B.C. She was instrumental in organizing the education of Japanese Canadian students in B.C. throughout the Canadian Government’s WWII Japanese internment programme. Following the war, Hide moved to Ontario where she married Rev. Kosaburo Shimizu in 1948. In Ontario, Hide became an active member of several Japanese Canadian interest groups, including the Nisei Church Board, the Nisei Women’s Club, the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre (JCCC) and the Japanese Canadian Citizen’s Association (JCCA), the Momiji Health Care Society and the Nipponia Home for Japanese Canadian seniors.

Hide would later be recognized by the Canadian Government’s Women’s History Month as the first Japanese Canadian teacher. She was admitted to the Order of Canada in 1982 for her outstanding contributions to early Japanese Canadian education, and awarded the Order of the Precious Crown by the Japanese Government in 1983. Hide was also formally recognized by the NAJC and other Japanese Canadian groups for her lifelong contributions to Japanese Canadian society. She died in 1999 at the age of 91.

Dave and Dale Cox

Dave and Dale Cox (First Accrual)

This accrual contains a large selection of animation cels, toys and memorabilia relating to the cartoons the pair worked on, and conference programs they attended. As the two were also collectors of animation, it is somewhat unclear which cels were drawn by Dale or Dave, and which were purchased later on. There are notes and tips on animation, created by Dave when he worked at Nelvana, and are very detailed in describing the animation methods they used, and how to best reuse cels in future scenes. The production best represented in this accrual is the pair’s 1982 animated Christmas Card, which includes animation sketches, flip books, timing notes, and correspondence regarding the reception of the cartoon, and contracts to air the short on television. Another well represented program is Inspector Gadget, as there are notes from Dave’s time in Japan working on the program, and lots of memorabilia. There are also many cels and animation drawings from the program Ewoks.
Dates: [1966]-2018
Series have been arranged to reflect the different stages in Dale and Dave Cox’s lives. Larger series with clear division of work have been further divided into sub-series.
Series 1: Independent and Early Work (1968-2015)
The first series represent the work Dale and Dave did while at Sheridan and content they created for personal use and enjoyment. Freelance work or material that was not clearly tied to another series has also been placed here.
Series 2: VideoArt Productions (1972-2018)
The second series contains programs that were created by VideoArt Productions. As the company was young and small when Dave began there, it can be assumed he worked on all the material included in this series. This was the first animation company Dave worked for, and thus the work included is all from the early stages in his career.
Series 3: Nelvana (1978-2017)
The third series has been further arranged into subseries due to the large amount of material relating to it. Nelvana is a Canadian animation studio that both Dave and Dale worked for, and have played a large part in growing their careers. Nelvana has animated many popular and award winning programs, many of which are represented in this accrual. Due to the volume of material, and the breadth of programs, the series is divided into sub-series, organized by program, the advertisement branch of Nelvana, Spotted Bear, and company files. Much of the ephemera is within this series, as are the animation cels. Production notes are also included in some subseries. Not all of the material included in this series was directly worked on by the Coxs, but may have been acquired later for their personal collection.
Series 4: Animation Magazines and Conference Material (1975-2004)
The fourth series contains more secondary material. The pair attended many international as well Canadian professional animation conferences. Often their attendance was not only for yearly professional learning, but they had also been recognized for their contribution to the art and were being awarded in some manner. Because many of the shorts they worked on were the reasons they attended, those conference material that feature these programs, Christmas Card for example, have been organized into another series. Instead, this series “Animation Magazines and Conference Material” contains conference programs and magazines that do not feature either Dave or Dale. This series is quite useful in capturing how the animation industry both in Canada and abroad has changed, as the program books and magazines were meant for professionals in the field and cover a large breadth of time.
Series 5: Collectables and Other Material Related to Animation ([1966]-2004)
The last series contains material that are clearly items Dave and Dale collected over the years that relate to animation. This includes educational VHS tapes that cover the history of animation across the world, cels from programs that are outside of the scope of any of the other series listed, and other general animation memorabilia.
