Records regarding Vancouver Island Exploring Expedition

The series consists of records relating to The "Province" Exploring Expedition of Vancouver Island, 1894 and 1896.

The first expedition, sponsored by the Province newspaper was led by the Rev. William W. Bolton and explored Vancouver Island from Cape Commerell to Woss Lake in the summer of 1894. The second, which was organized by John William Laing but led by Bolton, explored the area between Woss Lake and Alberni in 1896.

The series consists of Bolton's pencil journals covering the 1894 expedition (2 vols.); a scrapbook of clippings from the Province of Bolton's journal entries, 1894 and 1896, with introductions and some additional articles; transcripts of the Province articles; and a notebook listing photographs taken and giving barometer, thermometer, and pedometer readings.
