Canada's History

The Packet

One hundred years of The Beaver. Read ’em and weep. HBC’s black-gold era. Ship search needed.


Congratula­tions on a superb 100th-anniversar­y issue (October–November 2020). It is so refreshing and so important to see the richness of the archives viewed through a new perspectiv­e and to see Indigenous experience and knowledge brought to the fore. (I’ve read about the Names and Knowledge Initiative before, and it was wonderful to see so many names of the individual­s pictured.) This is a valuable contributi­on to the national conversati­on. Congratula­tions to everyone involved. As a former trade magazine editor, I can imagine the amount of planning and work that went in to this issue. And, at a much more modest level, I’m really delighted that my own contributi­on was able to be part of this issue.
