Biographical history

Barbara Agnes Hinds was a journalist known for the breadth of her interests and knowledge, from science and municipal affairs to Inuit art and heritage preservation. Born in Liverpool, England, 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, with photographer Rosemary Gilliat, where she interviewed Inuit families. Throughout early 1960s Hinds made more trips to the Eastern Arctic and Yukon. As part of her abiding interest in the Canadian Arctic, Hinds collected Inuit art, which she later donated to the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. In 1974 Hinds was appointed medical correspondent for Halifax Herald Ltd. Later she became a public relations expert and medical reporter for Dalhousie University Faculty of Medicine. Her interest in birdwatching evolved into a long-running birdwatching column for the Weekender. Barbara Hinds died in 2014.
