THE FINE ARTS IN VANCOUVER, 1886 - 1930 (refer to THOM)
"Though but a small organization, numerically considered, the B.C. Society of
Fine Arts has had the honor of contributing its quota of members to engage
in the determined and now successful fight for freedom and civilization. It
may be said that all those belonging to this artistic fraternity have helped
in various ways, but those marked out for special recognition are:
CHARLES FERGUSON. - A water-color artist of much ability and a valued member, who donned the khaki and placed his services at the disposal of his country on the first opportunity. He also is a contributor to this volume."

From "Local Work is on View" by Bernard McEvoy
Vancouver Daily Province, October 2 1919
"In the "Courtyard of Le Petit Seminaire," Mr.
C.A. Ferguson has rendered a fine piece of work in stone and blue,
it has atmosphere and is eloquent of the old-cloistered calm of Quebec.
From "Pictures at B.C. Fine Arts", by J. Butterfield
Vancouver Daily Province, September 19 1921, page 12
"Among those whose pictures were sold were ... C.A. Ferguson ...
The other exhibit of craft work was a fire screen, the mahogany frame of which was designed and
made in the Burgess Beach workshops.
Mr. C.A. Ferguson, B.C.A., designed the embroidery,
which was sewn by his wife."
