Barbara Agnes Hinds was born in Liverpool in the United Kingdom in 1924. Hinds worked in public service and as a customs officer until moving to Canada in 1956, where she began work as a journalist for the Chronicle Herald and Mail Star, a career that continued for 33 years. In 1960, Hinds travelled to Fort Chimo, Quebec, where she interviewed Inuit families. Throughout early 1960’s Hinds made more trips to the Eastern Arctic and the Yukon. As part of her continuing interest in the Canadian arctic, Hinds collected Inuit art, which she donated to the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. In 1974, Hinds became the medical correspondent for Halifax Herald Ltd. Later, she became a public relations expert and medical reporter for the Dalhousie University Faculty of Medicine. Hinds had an interest in birdwatching, and wrote a long-running birdwatching column for the Weekender. Barbara Hinds passed away in 2014 after suffering a stroke.
