Scope and Content
Recording is of an interview with former Mayor William “Bill” Lewarne, conducted by Rod Fowler. Bill Lewarne was one of eleven participants interviewed as part of the SFU/Burnaby Centennial Committee's oral history series titled, "Voices of Burnaby".

Biographical Notes
William Alfred “Bill” Lewarne was born in Burnaby in 1926 to Ethel Cecilia Leer (1899- ) and Alfred Lewarne (1893-1962). The family, Ethel, Alfred and their three children Patricia, Beverley and William, moved to a house on Nelson Avenue in Alta Vista in 1931. Ethel still lived in the family home in 1990. Bill Lewarne attended Nelson Avenue School and South Burnaby High School (1932-1944). His father Alfred worked at Colony Farms as a dairy inspector and then for the Port of Vancouver Dairy before being laid off early in the Depression. The family struggled until in 1936 Alfred started his own ice cream business. After graduation Bill was in the army for two years, taking a refrigeration course under the veteran’s training benefit, before joining his father’s business. Three generations of the family operated the successful company, expanding from wholesale, retail and distribution of ice cream products into refrigerated warehouses and the wholesale ice business, until the business was sold to its competitor Dairyland in 1989. Bill Lewarne entered politics in 1965, first with the Nonpartisan Association (NPA) and then as a founder of the Burnaby Citizens Association (BCA). He served as an alderman on Burnaby Council 1973-1975 and 1977-1981 and as Mayor 1981-1987. In 1979 he ran for provincial office for the Social Credit Party against Rosemary Brown but lost. Bill Lewarne married June Lawrence and they had three children Robert, Leslie and Janice. He was active in many organizations: Burnaby/Willingdon Liberal Association, Seton Villa, Irish Fusileers of Canada, Lions Club, Rotary Club, Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion, and the Burnaby Hospital Foundation, and continued to be active on the Board of the BCA. Bill Lewarne died in 1995.

Fonds consists of textual material and photographs documenting the society's fundraising, restoration and official opening of the Interurban Tram 1223. The records include the society's Certificate of Incorporation, research and publicity materials, correspondence, meetings and reports along with financial registers, volunteer lists, scrapbooks, one photograph album and textual chronologies created by Cice and Dennis Brown (volunteers with Friends of the Interurban Tram 1223). There are four scrapbooks titled “Friends of the Interurban 1223” (books 1 -4) documenting the history and restoration while one small album “Friends of the Interurban 1223” celebrates the volunteers who took part in the restoration along with archival images of BCER rolling stock and stations. Two historical chronologies titled “The Near Death and Resurrection of 1223” document fundraising and restoration while another historical chronology is titled “BCER Archival Reports” and includes copies of original BCER records and newspaper clippings (1910-1985).One file of records includes memoirs from both Cice and Dennis Brown reflecting on the significance that the Interurban 1223 had on their union along with two endorsement letters for the restoration of the tram from the Mayor of Burnaby and Friends of the Interurban (2002). The Interurban 1223 tram ran in the Lower Mainland for the British Columbia Electric Railway from 1913 to 1958, after which it became the property of the Burnaby Historical Society. The tram was put on display at Kingsway and Edmonds, and moved to Heritage Village (later Burnaby Village Museum) in 1971. Don Wrigley was president of the Friends of the Interurban 1223 society. The tram was restored between 2001 and 2007. Fonds is arranged into four series: Treasurer / Project Manager; Scrapbooks and album; Research notes; Society records and Moving Images.
Administrative History
The Interurban 1223 tram ran in the lower mainland for the British Columbia Electric Railway from 1913 to 1958, after which it became the property of the Burnaby Historical Society. The tram was put on display at Kingsway and Edmonds, and moved to Heritage Village (later Burnaby Village Museum) in 1971. The tram slowly decayed from disuse, vandalism, and exposure to the elements. In March, 1999, an Ad Hoc Committee for the Interurban Tram 1223 was formed within the Burnaby Historical Society. The original members of this committee were Don Wrigley, Cicely (Cice) Brown, Carol Rush, Diane Heberts, and Margaret Matovich. The committee made a presentation to the Burnaby Parks and Recreation Commission, which adopted three recommendations related to the restoration of the 1223. This group then established the Friends of Interurban 1223, a non-profit society, in May of 1999 in order to undertake the restoration of the tram. At its incorporation the society’s board of directors consisted of President Don Wrigley (who had previously coordinated the restoration of Burnaby Village Museum’s Parker carousel), Vice President and Volunteer Coordinator Cicely Brown, Treasurer and Project Manager Dennis Brown, Recording Secretary Margaret Matovich, Corresponding Secretary Dorothy Wrigley, and Director Carol Rush. Ed Eckly headed the Fundraising Committee, and Carol and Bob Rush visited community events with an information program promoting the restoration to raise funds. The Friends, after a public awareness campaign in local media, convinced Burnaby City Council that a full restoration was necessary and that it should be done by a Burnaby group. (There had been a proposal that the tram be sent to Richmond so that a group that had been restoring another tram there could also restore the 1223.) The City agreed to let the Friends of Interurban 1223 raise funds and organized skilled volunteers for the restoration, and also agreed to build a car barn to house and display the 1223 when it was restored. The City’s proposal that the tram be moved to a city owned warehouse on Royal Oak Ave. while it was being restored divided the Friends. Many members saw the warehouse as a reasonable place to complete the work; others wanted the work to be done in front of the public at Burnaby Village Museum. When the Friends of Interurban 1223 passed a motion at the April 2001 AGM to support the option of using the city warehouse, Don Wrigley resigned from the society’s board. Pixie McGeachie was elected President following Wrigley’s resignation. The 1223 was moved to the Royal Oak warehouse in September of 2001. The tram was first disassembled and parts inventoried. The restoration involved welding a new frame, having new brass parts cast, rebuilding the wooden body, stripping and refinishing wooden parts, rewiring the tram’s electrical components, having custom rattan seats and fabric roof seal made, and replacing windows and fittings. Many parts were sourced from other restoration groups that had worked on 1223’s sister trams, and were either donated or loaned to make patterns for new parts. The Southern British Columbia Railroad (corporate descendant of the BC Electric Railway) provided maintenance documents and Elisabeth Czerwinski, Burnaby Village Museum Conservator, acted as liaison with the Friends to ensure that the restoration met museum standards. More than 20,000 volunteer hours and over $550,000 in cash and in-kind donations were contributed to the project. The restoration was completed in 2007, when the tram was moved to its new tram barn back at Burnaby Village Museum. Burnaby Village Museum and the Friends of Interurban 1223 were the recipients of a 2007 BC Museums Association Award of Merit for the project, and the museum also received a 2007 Heritage BC Award of Honour. The Friends of Interurban 1223 was dissolved in 2008 following the completion of the restoration.
