Scope and content

The collection consists of materials written by J.T. Walbran, including correspondence and research material. The collection also consists of a newspaper clipping book that Walbran kept between 1909 and 1912. Much of the material is related to Walbran's research into the history of British Columbia. Two volumes, the "Tonquin" and "The Cruise of the Imperial Eagle" were typed up by Provincial Archives staff in 1936, several years after Walbran's death. They were, however, created from transcripts provided by Judge Howay and it is presumed that the originals were given by Walbran to Howay.
