Name of creator
The Burrard Literary Club was an early Vancouver debating and public speaking club. Meetings and debates were held once a week, and were conducted according to parliamentary rules.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of records created and received by the Burrard Literary Club. Records include the club's constitution, membership lists, correspondence, receipts, and minutes of meetings. Minutes list topics of debate, including: women's suffrage, Asian labour in Canada, socialism, phrenology, capital punishment, local political and economic issues, and other topics.
Immediate source of acquisition
The fonds was donated to the Archives in 1973 by Mrs. J.S. Turnbull of West Vancouver.
