I live and work on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples. My professional experience has largely been in records management and archives of local government. In 2016 and 2018 I taught the Archival Studies course “History of Record Keeping” (ARST 517) as an adjunct professor at the University of British Columbia School of Information. When I started these posts I had in mind an overview of history of the petition, hence the title. I’ve since expanded the scope to include other topics in the history of record keeping, and my own research. Comments, information and suggestions are welcome.
