BC brewing industry: thematic subject files

Sub-series consists of subject files relating to the history of beer and brewing in BC. Most (but not all) of the files in this sub-series were started by Evans in the course of his thesis work, and many were subsequently continued in his post-thesis research.

Topics documented include the establishment and chronology of various BC breweries; historical brewing processes, equipment, supplies, production and distribution; brewery personnel and labour relations; advertising, public houses and saloons; BC's temperance movement, prohibition, post-prohibition liquor legislation, and debates and plebiscites around liquor licensing in the province.

Records includes Evans' notes and working papers, interview notes, and correspondence; newspaper clippings (photocopied) and periodical articles, book reviews, printed web pages and bibliographies; and images of beer bottles and labels. Includes a copy of Home Made Beverages by a Practical Brewer (1919) and old brewing recipes (file 35); copies of census records, sessional papers of Parliaments and tables of trade and navigation (statistics), labour agreements (1916-1937) and union dues books file 28), reports and unpublished papers.
