Scope and content
Series consists of photocopied and microfilmed archival documents generated by government bodies, copies of photographs, and handwritten research notes. Records include correspondence (including private letters of South Asians in North America, acquired through government surveillance), as well as telegrams, reports, press clippings from government department files (Canadian, British, Indian and American), and from Governors General files, Prime Ministers' files, and publications.
Records are from Canadian, British, Indian and American archives, primarily from Library and Archives Canada. MsC 183-0-3-0-0-6 contains a guide to most of these materials. The archival reference and origin is written or stamped on each document.
Immediate source of acquisition
Arrangement follows the creator's original chronological order. Archival documents and notes relating to the "The Voyage of the Komagata Maru" come first, followed by records relating to "Jewels of the Qila" and other published essays and articles. Microfilm reels from national archives were stored and inventoried separately by the creator and have been described as a unit last in the series.
