Our archival holdings, which relate primarily to the regiment but also to other military units in Edmonton and in Alberta, include such things as official correspondence, service records, war and personal diaries, scrapbooks, newspaper and magazine articles, maps, photo images, and more.
Highlights include oral histories (drawn from the Museum's ongoing Oral History project), diaries and scrapbooks belonging to Maj.Gen. W.A. Griesbach (WWI) and Col. J.R. Stone (WWII), and a large collection of official documents related to the formation of units in the Edmonton area during the First World War. Also of special interest is our complete collection the Regimental magazine The Fortyniner. First published in 1915, the magazine now has over 109 issues and still counting.
We are in the process of digitizing selected archival materials, which we hope to make accessible through this website. For example, we have now completed digitizing all copies of the Fortyniner and are working on other documents and parts of our photo collection.
