Growth of Collections: Medical Journals, Genealogy, Local History

Close to 1,000 new periodical issues have been added to Early Canadiana Online since we last reported in February. As our focus shifts to early 20th-century magazines, the profound effect of the First World War on Canadian society begins to make its presence felt, and is reflected in journal content of the time.

This is perhaps most strikingly illustrated in the 120 new issues of Canada Lancet, covering the years 1911 to 1922: this was a very stressful, but innovative, time in medicine, as those in the medical profession faced the challenge of fixing the broken bodies, spirits and minds of returning soldiers. Articles abound on rehabilitation, reconstructive surgery, the use of prosthetics, etc.  

A striking contrast to the Lancet’s sobering presentation of the effects of the war, is the Canadian Official Record (also published in French as Bulletin officiel canadien). Beginning publication in the final weeks of the war, through this journal, the federal government attempts to put as positive a spin as possible on the war and its aftermath, at times almost glossing over the harsh realities facing many Canadians as they enter the new post-war world.

Genealogy and local history portal continue to be areas of particular strength and dramatic growth for the collection. The newest additions cover Canada from the east, (Business and General Directory of Newfoundland, 1877; A History of the County of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia) to west (The Williams’ official British Columbia directory, 1899), and many points in between (Directory of Poultry Breeders of Alberta, 1918; Les vieilles familles d’Yamachiche; Ontarian Families).
