G-1979-042: S03 · Series · 1921-1930, 1948-1951
Part of Northwest Territories. Legislative Assembly fonds

The files in this series contain the papers kept by the Secretary for each session. Although this practice continued until 1951, all of the files between 1929 and 1949 were probably destroyed before 1967. Although the files consist largely of copies which can also be found in the signed minutes (series 01), they also contain some additional information.

Please note that many of the Council minutes contain outdated and pejorative terms; paternalistic, racist, ableist, or otherwise offensive attitudes; and/or discussions of sensitive topics. We have reproduced these terms and comments in the digitized documents because they are a part of the original historical record.

Cory, Deputy Commissioner R.A. Gibson, O.S. Finnie, Commissioner H.H. Rowatt, J.L. Turner (Acting Chairman of the Dominion Lands Board), and Dr. Charles Camsell (Deputy Minister of the Department of Mines). Charles Camsell's records also include records of the Advisory Board on Mining Regulations (1922-1936). These sets of minutes frequently overlap in time with one another and contain many of the same attachments, although some of the attachments are different than those found in the signed minutes (Series 1).

Regular and special sessions are numbered from 1921-1950.

These attachments include agendas, copies of correspondence, reports, some Ordinances (including some drafts), and minutes of related committees, including the Interdepartmental Reindeer Committee, Yellowknife Board of Trustees, and Hay River Board of Trustees.
