Biographical history

John McIllree was Commissioner of the Royal Northwest Mounted Police.

Custodial history

The unit was loaned to the PABC for microfilming by the grandson, John N. McIllree, Victoria, in 1975 and 1987.

Scope and content

Thirty-six volumes consisting of diaries and note-books by John McIlree and one journal and two diaries by his wife, Lily McIllree, 1882-1892.

Records consisting of thirty-six volumes of diaries and notebooks by John H. McIllree, spanning the years 1874-1913, as well as one journal and two diaries by Lily (Caroline Elizabeth Humphrys) McIllree, the wife of John H. McIllree, dated 1882-1884, 1884-1886, and 1892. Items with a volume number were loaned in 1975 for microfilming; items without a volume number were loaned in 1987 for microfilming. Some of the diaries/daily journals loaned in 1987 appear to be either the original or duplicate diaries kept as backup copies. For example, the 1881 calendar year diary/daily journals (A00530, Vol. 6, and A00997(3), 1881) contain identical content, but are recorded in different handwritings and in different physical volumes.
