Editor's note: although I have been referencing "M" into BC ARTISTS for about fifteen years, almost exclusively into solo artist biographical files, the concept of going through every volume to look for, identify, mark, and reference all "BC artists" into my project was too daunting, with eight volumes and over 3,600 pages of information to review. Finally, during a two-week vacation in 2016, I broke down and did seven volumes of it (lacking the elusive Volume 8.1). In May 2018 I acquired Volume 8.1, Safdie, Sylvia to Smith, Jori, from an on-line auction, and quickly added it to the original list.

A total of 714 artists "qualified" as BC artists and were cross-referenced. Of these, 127 were not previously listed in BC ARTISTS. It was a very useful exercise, and I was able to add a significant amount of information to the artist index and to the artist biography files. This was not in any way an attempt to copy all of Macdonald into BC ARTISTS, but to ensure that BC ARTISTS is a comprehensive finding aid to BC artists listed in Macdonald, with particular emphasis on dates and places where artists lived, worked and were educated.

NOTE: artists listed are only those artists with BC references
