Name of creator
Moses Cotsworth came to British Columbia from England in 1910. He was an accountant, statistician, politician and a writer on politics, economics, and calendar reform. Perhaps he is most remembered for his work on calendar reform, in which he advocated a year divided into thirteen months of twenty-eight days each.
The Vancouver Centennial Museum had custody of the material until it was transferred to City of Vancouver Archives in 1985.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of letters, bills, leases, papers, and publications of Moses B. Cotsworth; a photograph of John Oliver; and Vancouver publications.
Immediate source of acquisition
Donated by John Priestman, a grandson of Cotsworth, in 1985.
