Scope and content

The series consists of a diverse group of records, most of which concern the company as a whole, reflect its functions and activities, and were probably maintained in the main office at the Bamberton plant. Among the types of records are: company annual reports, organizational charts, plant operation flow charts, company publications, employee newsletters, company forms and stationery, reports and policy documents regarding records keeping and document retention, internal audit reports and collected articles and clippings. The reports include inventories and appraisals of properties and mineral deposits owned by B.C. Cement Company, with maps and photographs. There are also planning reports regarding potential future mill development and new plant locations.

The series also consists of a history of the B.C. Cement Company written by a long-time company employee, Robert H. (Bob) Moffatt. This is accompanied by articles, research notes, correspondence, and newspaper clippings which appear to be the product of Moffatt's research. It is possible that some of the photographs in series MS-3108 were collected by Moffatt in the course of his research.

A number of the reports in this and in other series in the fonds were written by John M. (Jack) Cummings who worked for the B.C. Cement Company as a geologist and research engineer. Other unpublished research reports and published articles, written by Cummings both before and during his employment with B.C. Cement Company, may be found in series MS-3120.

These files were not classified by B.C. Cement Company employees according to the company file classification system. They were assigned to this artificial series by the archivist.
