Name of creator
The Vancouver Island Rugby Union was created on 17 December 1975 at a special general meeting of the Victoria Rugby Union held at the University of Victoria. The objects of the Society were the promotion and furtherance of amateur sport and the control, organization, promotion and encouragement of rugby union football on Vancouver Island.
Scope and content
The fonds consist of the executive records of the Vancouver Island Rugby Union created between 1975 and 1988. They include executive minutes, constitution, bylaw and regulation files, correspondence, discipline committee files, junior rugby files, handbooks, schedules, tour files, pamphlets, posters and banners. The fonds also include some files from the VIRU predecessor body, Victoria Rugby Union, as well as minutes and correspondence of the British Columbia Rugby Union from 1946 to 1975.
Immediate source of acquisition
Donated in several accessions in 1988 and 1994 by Les Underwood, executive member of the VIRU.
There is no real arrangement to the records. Because various ranges were kept by the president, the secretary and the treasurer, there may be duplicates.
