This series consists of greeting cards, menus and invitations from various gala events and correspondence collected by Stuart Hodgson, mostly during his tenure as Commissioner of the Northwest Territories, but up to and after his retirement in 1992. There are also Cross Border, Arctic Circle certificates, a Sourdough Council certificate from the Yukon, and an information booklet on Cambridge Bay.


This series consists of both Stuart Hodgson's appointments to Council, Deputy Commissioner and Commissioner of the Northwest Territories, as well as his Order of Canada, honorary doctorate with the University of Calgary, and Order of St. John's Ambulance, St. Huberts and St. Lazarus of Jerusalem.

Orders in Council

Between 1905 and 1921, the only legislation for the Northwest Territories (except for two Federal Acts) was by Order in Council. After 1921 minor matters (appointments of officials and their sala­ries, changes in regulations, etc,) were still decided by Order in Council. This series consists of chronological and alphabetical indices of Orders from 1870-1932, a chronological list of Dominion Acts relating to the NWT from 1869-1927, and copies of the Orders in Council from 1905-1932.


The series consists of an incomplete collected Ordinances of the Northwest Territories from 1905 to 1951. There is a small booklet for those passed 1905-1932, two folders of ordinances arranged alphabetically by subject, and two indices covering the years 1898-1904 and 1905-1949. Copies of many of the Ordinances are also included with the signed minutes in Series 1-3.

Secretary's Files and Session Papers

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.

Records of Council Members

The records within this series are several parallel sets of minutes, agendas, meeting calls, and attachments sent to and kept by various members of the Council, including Commissioner W.W. 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).

Signed Minutes

The series consists of signed minutes of the Council of the Northwest Territories during the period of appointed Council members. The minutes of the first five sessions are not signed, but they are clearly intended of to the be the official proceedings of the Council, and the signed versions can be found in Series 3. Regular and special sessions are numbered from 1921-1950.

A large number of attachments have been included with the minutes, but this has not been done consistently. 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. Some maps and photographs are also included.
