George MacMartin’s diary

Queen’s Archives was featured on CBC’s Ideas program regarding an item in our holdings – George MacMartin’s diary (1905). George MacMartin was the Treaty Commissioner for Ontario and part of the team who met with First Nations leaders, resulting in James Bay Treaty Nine. This diary was thought to have been “lost”, but in reality has been in our holdings for over thirty years (Location #2999). MacMartin’s diary provides another perspective on the James Bay Treaty Nine besides those found in the government records.

Learn more about George MacMartin’s diary and James Bay Treaty Nine by listening to the CBC’s Ideas program “George MacMartin’s Big Canoe Trip” http://www.cbc.ca/ideas/episodes/2011/12/19/george-macmartins-big-canoe-trip/
