These journals comprise one of the principal sources of information on early European settlement in BC and provide a remarkable and unique record of the establishment of Fort Langley. Although the journals record such day-to-day details as weather, trade, and visitors, they also contain a wealth of information about social and administrative life at the fort.
Morag Maclachlan taught British Columbia and Canadian history at Langara College in Vancouver until her retirement in 1983. Wayne Suttles is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology, Portland State University.
