Provision was made by the Parliament of Canada, in 1872, for
an Archives Branch, and Douglas Brymner was appointed Dominion
Archivist. His first report appeared in 1873. The earlier reports were
of a preliminary nature, but in 1884 the first of the important series
of calendars was included in the report. Abbe Verreau made a special
report on historical material in Europe bearing on Canadian history,
published in 1874. A report on manuscript material in the colonial
archives at Paris, by Edouard Richard, was published as a supplement to
the report for 1899. Dr. Brymner died in 1902, and Arthur G. Doughty was
appointed Dominion Archivist in 1904. The report for 1905, in 3 vols.,
represented a new departure; the publication of calendars was abandoned,
and replaced by volumes containing series of documents relating to
definite subjects, systematically arranged. The archives were moved into
a special building in 1907. In 1910 began the issue of a series of
publications, containing historical journals and other special material.
Provincial archives, of a more or less distinct character, have also
been established in the provinces of Quebec, Ontario, Nova Scotia,
British Columbia, Manitoba, and Alberta. =Index=: (Sir Frederick Haldimand era) Quoted, 254;
