Name of creator
The Chinese have played a prominent role in the history of British Columbia since the start of the gold rush in the 1850s.
Scope and content
The collection consists of miscellaneous papers, primarily agreements and financial papers, relating to the Chinese on the west coast of North America from 1858-1884. The donor also included notes on the collection.
Immediate source of acquisition
The collection was loaned for copying by Willson E. Knowlton, D.O.S., of Kamloops, in September 1974. He reported that the collection was found in the false bottom of a Chinese chest which his mother purchased in Vancouver ca. 1935-1940.
