Custodial history

Scope and content

Series consists of records relating to Evans' completion of his Master of Arts degree in the Department of History at the University of Victoria. Evans entered the program in 1985 and completed his thesis, The Vancouver Island Brewing Industry: 1858-1971, in 1991.

The series includes a paper and digitized copy of the thesis (files 18-20 and 21 respectively); two course papers that set out the program of study (files 2-3); chapter drafts and notes, including materials for a chapter on labour ("The Workplace") that was omitted in the final thesis (file 10); and administrative records relating to Evans' enrolment in the Master's program (file 1).

Records include notes and working papers, essays, draft chapters, and thesis; correspondence, transcripts, and letters of recommendation.

Files are arranged chronologically.

Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition


The paper copy of the thesis that Evans retained (files 18-19) was missing pages 166-173, which is the final chapter, "Conclusion, The Industry in Retrospect." That chapter, however, was included in materials donated to the Archives by John Rowling (F-318). The archivist made a paper copy of the missing chapter, included it in this series as file 20, and incorporated it into the digitized version (file 21).

Availability of other formats

Four files have been selected for digitization: Evans' thesis (file 13), two graduate-school papers related to the thesis (files 2 and 3) and the draft of a planned chapter on labour (file 10) that was not included in the final thesis. Files were scanned as single pdf files; some redactions were applied to the access copy of the thesis (supervisors' signatures).

Restrictions on access

Files are open with no restrictions, with the exception of file 1 which contains personal information relating to Evans' academic career and is available only in the Archives' reading room.
