The records known as the Herald Street Collection were stored in a government warehouse on Herald Street in Victoria and were transferred to the BC Archives around 1980.


The records as received were in no particular order and were inventoried by Archives staff. Lists were made that identified individual records as inventory I and Inventory II. Some items were removed from the inventory and described with individual GR numbers.
