The file consists of photocopied author cards of the Lande collection.
The Lande collection, housed at Montreal’s McGill University, was acquired in 1965 and at that time comprised some 2300 items. Several further accruals were made between 1965 and 1975, and the Collection currently consists of 6800 items relating to the exploration and development of Canada.
The Arkin collection was purchased with Dr. Lande’s assistance in 1966. It comprises material relating to the settlement and development of the prairie provinces and the West during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
