Name of creator
Vancouver High School opened in 1890. From 1899 to 1907 it was affiliated with McGill University (Montreal) and, in addition to matriculation, offered first and second year Arts courses. In 1905 a new school was erected in Fairview and five years later, upon the death of King Edward VII, the high school was renamed King Edward High School.
Scope and content
The collection consists of yearbooks, newsletters, a few newsclippings, photograph albums, and additional photographs. The yearbooks are dated 1912-1962, quite a complete set with the following years not represented: 1914, 1919, 1924, 1925, 1926, 1942, 1943, 1944, 1947, 1950, 1951, 1954, 1956. The newsletters include: "The Stranger" (Feb. 1912); "The High School Argus" (Nov. 1913); and "Blue and White" (1937-1960), as well as a golden anniversary reunion program dated 1960. Newsclippings are dated 1972-1976. The photographs (not yet described, CVA 664) include a set five albums, each of which contains identified portraits of graduates (1932, 1933, 1934, 1935, 1936, shelved at CVA 664 box 1). Another album contains miscellaneous photographs used in the 1960 yearbook (also CVA 664 box 1).
