Biographical history

George Henry Raley was born in England in 1864. Ordained as a Methodist minister, he arrived in Kitimat (Kitamaat) in 1893 to set up a mission there. He transferred to Port Simpson in 1906 before assuming the duties of principal at the Coqualeetza Institute (Indian School) in Sardis from 1914 to 1945. He conducted extensive research into totem poles, Indian crafts and the Kitimat Indian language. He died in Vancouver.

Custodial history

The records were probably passed on to Robert Scott at around the time of Raley's death, and were transferred to the archives as part of R.C. Scott's papers. Although Scott appears to have kept Raley's records separate from his own, they are physically arranged with the R.C. Scott fonds.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of two files: Baptismal and death records, 1893-1954, and Marriage records, 1893-1951. Some of the records are written on the reverse side of pages from a draft essay on Indian arts and industry.
