Book project files

Series consists of records relating to Evan's book project. In 2011, Evans reached agreement with the Royal British Columbia Museum (RBCM) to produce a series of books under the working title The History of Beer Brewing in British Columbia. The work was initially planned as three separate volumes: The Pioneer Years, 1858-1920 (Part 1); The Years of Consolidation, 1920-1982 (Part 2); and A Renaissance of Brewing, 1982-present (Part 3). A revision of the agreement in 2016 narrowed the scope to just the first two volumes. Evans continued to work on the project up to his death, but the manuscripts were not completed and no copies survive.

This series brings together a number of files relating to the book project. Records includes outlines for the project and the publishing agreement with RBCM (files 1-2); correspondence, notes, working papers, progress checklists, invoices, bibliographies and reference materials. Reference material includes works by Lynn Pearson, "Towers of Strength: Brewery Architecture at Home and Abroad" (paper given at the Victorian Society at Young's Brewery in London in Feb 2006) and Derrek Eberts, "To Brew or Not to Brew: A Brief History of Beer in Canada" (Manitoba History, vol. 54, Feb. 2007).

While there are no surviving manuscripts for the book, it seems likely that many fragments do exist in the form of the multi-page profiles of individual breweries that are found in many of the "brewery files" in series 3.

Brewing history research files

Series consists of Evans' research materials relating to BC brewing history. A large number of the files date back to Evans' work on his thesis (1985-1991), but he continuously added new material to old files and created new files in the course of his ongoing research.

Records includes Evans' notes and working papers, correspondence, speaking notes for public talks; interview notes and biographical sketches of brewers and brewery profiles; copies of advertisements, beer labels, photographs, maps, fire insurance plans, drawings, and floor plans; copies and transcriptions of newspaper and periodical articles, excerpts from publications (books, websites); and copies of archival documents, the originals of which are held by other repositories.

Two types of dates have been given to most files in the series: "dates of creation" and "dates of document". "Creation" dates are based on date of accumulation by Evans. Many of the working papers and notes by Evans are undated, while documents that are dated are often reproductions of older, historical records that he had copied by the repositories he visited. This makes it difficult to determine the precise dates on which files were opened or closed. Files dated [198-]-[199-] are thought to belong to the thesis period; files dated [198-]-[201-] originated in the thesis research but continued to be added to; other ranges are given where more precise dates of accumulation seem possible based on file contents (e.g. Evans' own correspondence). The "dates of document" given at the sub-series and file levels refers to the dates of the original documents that Evans copied.

The series is arranged into ten sub-series:
