History / Biographical
The Smithers Miners’ and Prospectors’ Association was first formed August 2, 1918, in Smithers, BC. The Association acted as an advocate and representative of miners and prospectors to the Government, regarding legislation, roads, trails, etc. In the early 1920s, a growing interest in unifying British Columbian associations for miners and prospectors established itself. The goal was to form a governing body, still independent of Government control, to act as a coordinating body and representative of portions of the Province and all District Associations. In 1921, in line with this endeavour of unity, the Association changed its name to the British Columbia Prospectors’ Association – Omineca District.
Scope and Content
Fonds reflects the functions and actions of the Smithers Miners’ and Prospectors’ Association. Records include correspondence, meeting minutes, financial records, proposed amendments to various acts and records regarding the creation of a provincial prospectors’ association. The fonds is organized into two series: President and Secretary.
Arrangement
These records were rearranged in 2003/2004 by Sharon Kerr and Jane Young, under direction and notes by Wendi Croft. A file labeled Newspaper Clippings was deaccessioned from this fonds due to the clippings being unsourced and undated, referring to conferences or events in the United States. Records were rearranged physically and intellectually in October 2016 by Manda Haligowski to better reflect archival standards and to improve accessibility.

History / Biographical
The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers was founded in Michigan on May 8, 1863 as a trade organization for railroad workers. The first Canadian chapter was established soon after in Toronto in 1865. Although little documentation of the Brotherhood exists in the fonds, presumably the local branch was established in the Bulkley Valley at approximately the same time as the completion of Grand Trunk Pacific railway in 1914.
Scope and Content
Fonds includes a cash book, exam booklet, and a number of books. Books include “Sheahan’s Telegraph Cipher Code,” “B. of L.E. Funeral Service,” “The Compound Locomotive” and “Ritual of the Grand International Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers.”
