Custodial history

Material has largely come into the Archives' custody in piecemeal fashion from various sources. Some material was received directly from Mrs. Robert C. (Catherine) Tuck of Georgetown, P.E.I., daughter of Alan D. Greene, former C.C.M. Superintendent in 1981 and 1989 while some other material was received from the same person through the Archives of the Diocese of British Columbia in Victoria in 1981. The latter Archives also transferred a significant body of materials to the custody of the Archives of the Ecclesiastical Province between 1985 and 1989. Finally, some material was also received from the Rev. Eric Powell and the Synod Office of the Diocese of New Westminster in 1980 and 1984.

Scope and content

  • Fonds consists of minutes, correspondence, reports, constitutions and by-laws, legal records, financial records, property records, personnel records, architectural records, photographs, parish registers (1913-1970), service registers, civil registers, guest books, ships' logs, hospital records, printed material, sound recordings, clippings, notes, and scrapbooks.
  • Includes minutes of Board of Trustees and various committees; correspondence of the Superintendents, primarily Alan D. Greene, the Secretary-Treasurer and the Chaplains; some architectural plans of ships, and copies of the Mission's official publication, "The Log of the Columbia". Registers refer to numerous geographic locations, but most of them are arranged by ship rather than by place.
