Vancouver, City Museum
The Art, Historical and Scientific Association of Vancouver founded the museum in 1894 but the actual building did not open until 1905.
Of the 242 Egyptian items in the collection, 139 are recorded as coming from excavations directed by Petrie. The museum's donor file records a "purchase" from the British School of Archaeology in Egypt, made in 1919. Subsequently, 118 items from his excavations in Rifeh, Memphis, Gizeh and Tarkhan (excavated in 1906-7, 1908-13, 1910-11 and 1912-13 respectively) were sent. See Trumpour and Schultz (2008).
