Chinese-language documents focusing on the history of the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association (CCBA).
A collection of 55 Chinese-language documents focusing on the history of the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association (CCBA). Founded in 1884, the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association (CCBA) was a crucial force in Victoria's immigrant history. The oldest Association of its kind in North America, the CCBA advocated for an inclusive society, and for individual and group rights for people of Chinese origin. The era covered by the documents in this collection (1884 to 1922) was a difficult one for Chinese immigrants, when the completion of the Trans-Canada Railroad in 1885 threw thousands out of work. Documents included in this collection delineate the history of the association, recount its protests against discrimination, and record the history of institutions such as Victoria's Chinese Hospital.

A comprehensive portal for understanding the Komagata Maru incident of 1914 and its impact today through a variety of materials including government documents, books, journal articles, oral histories, private archives, artistic endeavours, and interviews.
The story of the Komagata Maru resonates beyond 1914, linking to freedom movements in India and the right to vote for South Asians in Canada. It addresses how we build communities, understand official multiculturalism, how we remember our past and develop multiple connections. Here you will find collected for the first time rare government documents, newspaper articles, academic texts, videos....and even a diary.
On May 23, 1914, a crowded ship from Hong Kong carrying 376 passengers, most being immigrants from Punjab, British India, arrived in Vancouver's Burrard Inlet on the west coast of the Dominion of Canada. The passengers, all British subjects, were challenging the Continuous Passage regulation, which stated that immigrants must "come from the country of their birth, or citizenship, by a continuous journey and on through tickets purchased before leaving the country of their birth, or citizenship." [Dr. Hugh Johnston].
The regulation had been brought into force in 1908 in an effort to curb Indian immigration to Canada. As a result, the Komagata Maru was denied docking by the authorities and only twenty returning residents, and the ship's doctor and his family were eventually granted admission to Canada. Following a two month stalemate, the ship was escorted out of the harbour by the Canadian military on July 23, 1914 and forced to sail back to Budge-Budge, India where nineteen of the passengers were killed by gunfire upon disembarking and many others imprisoned.

Posters and handbills created largely by the Atelier Populaire.
This collection of poster and handbills is important as a source of documentary, artistic and historical evidence of the student protests in France during May '68. Each day during the uprising members of the Atelier Populaire would meet to discuss the day's events and coordinate a message for the following day via posters, a form of wall newspaper.
A related collection, The May Events Archive, documents this exciting historical moment with original leaflets, magazines, and newspapers from the period. Andrew Feenberg collected the documents at demonstrations and rallies during May 1968. The documents were gathered more or less at random and are sufficiently numerous to offer a good cross section of the thought and action of the period.

A collection of digitized print materials documenting the emergence of a Ukrainian-Canadian culture in Canada.
Ukrainians arrived in Canada in large numbers in the years preceding WWI (1891-1914) and WWII (1922-1939), with regular immigration thereafter. Many settled in the prairie provinces, where they were specifically desirable to Canada as farmers experienced in working in a similar environment. This concentration produced an active ethnic and religious environment from which numerous publications emerged. The collection found here includes magazines, newspapers, newsletters, calendar-almanacs and books that document the development of a specifically Ukrainian-Canadian culture. The materials are largely in Ukrainian with some English texts.

Correspondences of early to mid-Victorian British women writers.
The aim of the Victorian Women Writers' Letters Project is to make available through electronic publication the correspondences of early to mid-Victorian British women writers in a form that attempts to capture the multiplexity of epistolary communication.
The Anna Jameson, Harriet Martineau, and their Friends database is the first stage of the project. Anna Brownell Murphy Jameson (1794-1860) and Harriet Martineau (1802-1876) were amongst the most active and influential of the professional women writers of the period; they were involved with many of the reform campaigns and related activities; and they travelled widely. Thus, their social networks--literary and otherwise--were extensive.
