DOMINION ARCHIVIST, OTTAWA TORONTO MORANG CO., LIMITED 1911 COPTBIGHT, 1911. C30PTBIGHT IK GREAT 2 1917 INTRODUCTION THIS Supplement is designed to supply a double need it furnishes an analytical index to the entire series of twenty volumes and it affords a great deal of additional information, bearing on the subject-matter of these volumes, but which from its very nature it was impossible to incor porate in the text. This additional information includes biographical sketches of the characters mentioned in each volume similar sketches of prominent Canadians who for one reason or another do not appear in any of the twenty volumes and brief descriptions of wars, battles, treaties, and political and other events having a vital bearing on the history of Canada. References have been added, wherever necessary, to the principal sources which the student may consult for further in formation. The whole has been thrown into one alphabetical arrange ment, and it constitutes, to a large extent, a dictionary of Canadian history. To satisfy further the desire of those who, after reading the foregoing volumes, find it profitable to investigate more fully certain lines of in quiry suggested by the narratives, it has been thought advisable to add a list of manuscript sources from which new material may be gleaned. The collection of documents most convenient for this purpose is to be found in the Dominion Archives. It is not possible in the present work to do more than indicate the principal documents, as there are fifteenthousand volumes of manuscript in the Archives bearing on Canadian history. The sources indicated here are drawn principally from the series designated A, B, C, F, Q, M. The letter refers to the series, and the number to the volume. The Calendars published by the Archives in the Annual Reports should also be consulted by the student. For convenience of reference, it has been deemed preferable to group the manuscript sources under general headings, and print the list as a separate section in the volume. N In the preparation of the biographical references, the object has 51 been to include only those works that have a direct and vital bearing on the vii vrn INTBODIJCTION subject. A complete bibliography in each case would obviously be neither possible nor desirable. Nor, except in special cases, has any attempt been made to include articles or papers in periodicals or in the publications of learned societies. It will be sufficient to make a general reference here to some of the more important sources of information on the many topics covered in this volume. First among these sources should rank probably the publications of the Royal Society of Canada. The Society has published in a separate volume a very full General Index to its Proceedings and Transactions, 1882-1906, compiled by Dr. Benjamin Suite. For volumes subsequent to 1906, the individual in dexes should be consulted. A key to the Annual Reports of the Geolog ical Survey of Canada is found in two General Indexes, one covering the years 1863-1884, and the other the years 1885-1906. The latter, com piled by F. J. Nicolas, is very complete. Wurteles Index to the Trans actions and other Publications of the Literary and HistoricalSociety of Quebec, 1829-1891, furnishes a guide to the material issued by this oldest of Canadian learned societies. Unfortunately, no general index is available for the publications of the Canadian Institute, which cover a very wide and important field nor for those of the Historical and Scientific Society of Manitoba, the Ontario Historical Society, the Nova Scotia Historical Society, and various other Canadian institutions of a similar character...
