Charles F Newcombe


Dr. Charles Newcombe, a medical doctor and professional collector, presented the Liverpool Museum with a collection of Haida, Kwakwaka'wakw and Nuu-chah-nulth objects in 1901. Newcombe's knowledge of, and interest in, the cultures of the Northwest Coast secured his place as one of the most important collectors at a time when major American and European museums were actively developing their collections.

Prior to his move to Victoria, British Columbia in 1899, Newcombe worked for a time at Rainhill, near Liverpool.
