Scope and content
The fonds consists of records of the British Columbia Historical Association, Victoria Section. The records date from before 1983, the year the provincial parent body changed its name to the British Columbia Historical Federation.
The fonds consists of two groups of records. MS-3287, General office files, dates from 1961 to 1982, and includes minutes of regular meetings and of executive council; correspondence; membership-related records; mailing lists; publicity records; and notes on historical information about pioneer families of the Victoria area.
The second group of records in the fonds consists of 72 sound recordings of lectures and talks on historical subjects which were presented at the monthly meetings of the Victoria organization between 1969 and 1977.
The sound recordings were originally held by BC Archives under a fonds numbered AAAA8103. These recordings then were given the number and title PR-2251 - British Columbia Historical Association, Victoria Section collection. In 2016, PR-2251 was renamed British Columbia Historical Association, Victoria Section fonds, and the sound recordings were made a series (MS-3289) within the fonds.
