William Smithe fonds

  • PR-1608
  • Fonds
  • 1877-1887

The fonds consists of the correspondence of William Smithe.

Smithe, William, 1842-1887

Premier's records

  • GR-0441
  • Series
  • 1883-1933; predominantly 1883-1887, 1895-1933

The records in this unit consist primarily of correspondence, memoranda and indexes created and accumulated during the administrations of Premiers Smithe, Turner, Semlin, Martin, Dunsmuir, Prior, McBride, Bowser, Brewster, Oliver, MacLean and Tolmie (1893-1933). They also include a series of diaries of Premier Oliver, 1917-1927, scrapbooks, 1905-1941, and official addresses, programs and special items, 1951-1971.

Note that the records are not complete. There are, most notably, no records for A.E.B Davie, Theodore Davie or John Robson (1887-1895), but there are also records lacking for other administrations. The records are broken down into fifteen series on the basis of the type and/or filing system of the documents. A change in government did not always result in a break in a series of records, with the result that several series span more than one administration.

The fifteen series are listed below. See each series description for more information about content.
