Correspondence inward

  • GR-1330
  • Series
  • 1892-1917

This series contains letters inward to the Department of the Provincial Secretary, 1892-1917. During the period covered by GR-1330 (1892-1917) the Provincial Secretary was variously responsible for the departments of Mines, Education and Immigration. Within these departments he was responsible for the Legislative Library and Archives, the Queen's Printer, the Bureau of Statistics, the Civil Service Commission, and various agencies concerned with health and social welfare. The multiplicity of his duties accounts for the range and diversity of the records in GR-1330. Among the records are correspondence to, and from, the Lieutenant-Governor and the Executive Council, correspondence from Dominion officials concerning colonization and settlement, applications from organizations wishing to register under the Benevolent Societies Act, memoranda of association from businesses seeking to be incorporated under the provincial Companies Act, petitions from community groups requesting schools and improved municipal services, plus letters from private persons applying for appointments in the civil service. Also included are records arising from the administration of the provincial elections, hospitals, and asylums. Contemporary indexes to documents in GR-1330 are to be found in GR-0524: Provincial Secretary. Index to Correspondence Inward, 1872-1924. Documents are indexed by subject and/or by name of correspondent. Having located a document in one of the GR-0524 index volumes, researchers should note the file number which appears in the index. (It will be seen that documents received by the Provincial Secretary were numbered sequentially by year: thus file #1237/92 indicates a document received in 1892.) Index file numbers correspond to those which are noted on the reel/file list that follows. e.g. file 1237/92 will be found on Reel B4520; file 525/93 will be found on Reel B4521, etc.
