Biographical history

The Smithers Miners and Prospector's Association was organized August 2, 1918, in Smithers. Its motto was "A square deal to all, special favours to none". Its stated first objective was "to secure a square deal for the miners from the government in the matter of mining legislation, roads, trails, etc. and for the promotion of everything justly conductive to the benefit of the mining industry of British Columbia". The annual membership fee was twenty-five cents. The name of the Association was changed in 1928 to "The British Columbia Prospector's Association, Omineca District".
