    Administrative history

    Currie, McWilliams and Company (also known as Currie, McWilliams, Fowler) operated a cannery on Westham Island in the 1890s which was acquired by the British Columbia Packers Association in 1903. It continued to operate as the Currie-McWilliams Cannery. Most of the buildings were destroyed by fire in the 1920s.

    Custodial history

    The material was retrieved from the garbage dump at Huntington by James Blair, presented to the Mission Archives and then given to the Delta Museum and Archives in 1987.

    Scope and content

    The fonds consists of records of the Currie McWilliams Cannery and the Currie McWilliams import business. The majority of the papers are receipts for goods, materials, and machinery necessary for the operation of the businesses. As well, there are legal documents, correspondence, and memos.
