Keeper of Public Records
Price, 10 cents.  DOMINION OF CANADA
Keeper of Public Records
The Honourable
The Secretary of State,
Ottawa, May 20, 1927.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit to you the accompanying report on the
work of the Public Archives for the year 1926.
It will be observed that large additions have been made in each of the
The work of the copyists in the Public Record Office in London, and in the
Archives des Colonies, the Bibliothèque Nationale and other repositories of
historical papers in Paris has made available a considerable amount of
additional documentary material to students of the history of Canada.
Two exceptionally valuable collections received during the past years are
the papers of the eminent banking houses of the Baring Brothers and Glyn,
Mills & Company. These institutions financed many of the most important
undertakings in both Canada and the United States, and their papers are a
mine of information on the economic and political history of both countries.
Access to these papers was gained by Dr. Adam Shortt in 1925. Representations
as to the desirability of having these papers accessible to Canadian and American
students were made to the head of the Baring house, Lord Revelstoke, who is,
happily, related to the families of two former Governors General of Canada,
Lord Minto and Lord Grey, to 'both of whom Canada is largely indebted for
the present standing of the Public Archives. *
Lord Revelstoke willingly agreed to the Public Archives having the custody
of all the papers of these banking houses which related to their transactions in
North America down to the year 1871, and notified the Prime Minister to that
Another notable gift is that of the late Earl Amherst of Montreal, Sevenoaks.
It is a copy of the Atlantic Neptune, which was a possession of his famous
ancestor Jeffrey, Lord Amherst, who received the capitulation of Canada from
Governor Vaudreuil, on September 8, 1760. It was presented to Lord Amherst
by the author, Colonel DesBarres. There are three volumes in the set, each
fourteen inches wide by thirty-four inches in length. The first two volumes
contain charts of the sea coasts of Nova Scotia, and the third of the sea coasts
of New England. Besides the charts the volumes are enriched by one hundred
plates of views along the Atlantic coast. Many of these plates do not appear
in any other known copy of this work.
The absence of the appendices, which have usually accompanied the reports'
of the Archives, is accounted for by the fact that the papers which form the
material of these appendices were last year published as separate volumes. The
report on the Northcliffe Collection which contained the Monckton papers; the
two volumes on Currency and Exchange; and the Catalogue of Pictures in the
Public Archives were all published since the last report was issued.
Attention may be drawn to the increasing interest of scholars in the
material held in the Public Archives. Many students, American as well as
Canadian, spend the whole or a large part of the long vacation in the
institution. A large, comfortable room has been furnished for them, conveniently
situated between the Manuscript Room and the Library, and the assistance of
the staff is at all times at their service.
43096—14 4 REPORT FOR THE YEAR, 1926
Criticism has been directed to the delay which has ensued between the
publication of the English and French versions of the reports. But this delay
is in the interest of scholars as it requires a great deal of time to make a correct
translation. A comparison of the early English and French versions of Government publications is sufficient to prove the need of greater accuracy.
It is suggested in future that whichever report is ready first shall be held
until the translation is ready. In this way the French and English documents
will appear at the same time.
Jn future, therefore, the Archives will publish a brief report of the work of
the department similar to the present one and documents will be published when
they are ready in both languages.
I have the honour to be, sir,
Your obedient servant,
Deputy Minister. CONTENTS

Since the last report, 71,119 cards of the index of manuscripts were
typewritten, classified and placed in their respective drawers. The index of the
Quebec Gazette was also continued up to the year 1794 and 49,000 cards were
added to it. Thirty years of this interesting old paper, the only newspaper
published at that time, have now been indexed. 24,000 cards have also been
received from our Montreal office, being the index of old registers of baptisms,
marriages and burials in that city; the whole making a grand total of 144,119
cards added to our general index.
Military Records Section
The assembling and classification of the old military records in the custody
of the Public Archives have been pursued with renewed vigour. The services
of two employees of the Department of National Defence have been loaned and
the work is proceeding under the direction of the chief of the branch.
I. Correspondence and Military papers of Upper and Lower Canada.
The classification and preparation for an index of the military correspondence and documents of Upper and Lower Canada dating from 1770, are
now in progress. There are approximately a thousand portfolios of these
documents, which are of great historical value.
II. Old Militia Books of Departmental Records and Registers of Militia.
Books of military records numbering over a thousand volumes, cover
departmental records and the activities of the militia, volunteer and permanent
forces. Some of these units date back to 1793 and the registers of officers are
now classified and ready for reference.
HI.'Militia Pay-Rolls, Active Militia and Permanent Force.
Over 1200 portfolios of vouchers have been gone through and all the
military pay-rolls extracted therefrom. The classification of these pay-rolls is
proceeding; they are being placed in portfolios and are now easy to consult
Many requests are received for verification of services from the Department of
National Defence and old militiamen. These pay-lists date back to the year
1811 and cover all Canadian service from the War of 1812-15 to the South
African War.   They are now in order and ready for reference.
IV Militia Department—Abstracts and Vouchers.
There are on file about 1,600 packages and portfolios of Militia Department
abstracts and vouchers dating from 1898; these are now on the shelves ready for
V. Records of the Great War.
The Department of National Defence has begun the transfer of the records
of the Great War Three thousand files of deceased officers are already m this
section and placed in portfolios. It is expected that the balance of about seven
thousand of these files will be received shortly. ém*
The reclassification of the S. Series containing the internal qfficial correspondence of Lower Canada, 1760-1841, has also been undertaken and is now
The records of the Customs Department, from 1846 to 1867, are now being
examined, classified and put into portfolios; they will number about 200.
The records of the Department of Public Works covering the years 1844 to
1867, which were transferred to the Public Archives some years ago, have now
been sorted and placed in 321 portfolios; they are now ready for reference.
Applications for information and copies of documents continue to pour in
from all quarters. Since the last report, 1,609 searches have been made and
they have proved successful in nearly all cases.

Interior Department.
The total number of maps and plans in this department now exceeds 30,000
items. During the printing of the catalogue in 1912 more than one thousand
maps were added to the collections and since that time the total number has
more than doubled. Since the last report was published, the number has been
increased by 470 maps and 10 atlases. These large acquisitions created a serious
shortage of accommodation. Many of the maps and plans received had to be
tied in bundles or stored.
Since the publication of the last report, however, the Map Division has been
moved into more commodious quarters in the new wing where ample room is
provided to classify and catalogue the material.
Classification, Catalogue and Index
The classification adopted is geographic and follows the plan in use in the
Colonial Office, the Library of Congress and elsewhere. Under this arrangement
maps are sorted and classified into general divisions which cover a large
geographical area and into subdivisions which cover a smaller area within each
of the larger divisions. As an example the maps of Canada are classified under
maps of the different provinces, which in turn are grouped under maps of the
different cities and districts within each province. Following this classification,
which for all practical purposes is now completed, the preparation of a catalogue
and index to render the material more easily available for examination, became
a matter of urgent necessity. This work is at present being done, more than
half the maps having been catalogued and about one-third of the total number
indexed.   The index contains about 15,000 cards.
The applications for information received number 486. They deal with
every section of the country from the Maritime Provinces to British Columbia
and refer to the Labrador Boundary, the water-power right along the Ottawa
river and many hundreds of smaller but vitally important subjects. In connection
with these searches 764 photostat copies and tracings of maps were supplied to
