My book which focusses on Ida Gibbs Hunt and her husband, William Henry Hunt, is coming out from the University of Virginia Press this month (2/2010). It has lots of information about Ida's parents (Mifflin Wistar Gibbs and Maria Alexander Gibbs) and their decade in Victoria, Vancouver (1857-1868) where Ida was born in 1862. The title is Parallel Worlds: The Remarkable Gibbs Hunts and the Enduring (In)significance of Melanin.
