Victoria (B.C.). City Manager

Operational files 3

Series consists of records created by the City Manager under a filing system introduced in 1971. They pertain to virtually all areas of City activity.
Files are arranged alphabetically by subject within an overall numeric classification scheme in which letters of the alphabet are assigned a 'hundred-level' block of numbers for each year. For example, subjects filed under 'B' are found in the 200-299 range, subjects filed under 'C' are found in the 300-399 range, and subjects filed under 'D' (such as City Departments) are found in the 400-499 range. Sub-categories are assigned decimal extensions of the main numbers, so that general Parks records are found at 400.9 (Parks Department) and Parks records pertaining to Beacon Hill Park in particular are found at 400.9.1.
For earlier Manager records, see CRS 22 and CRS 23

Victoria (B.C.). City Manager

Operational files

Series consists of the main departmental records of the Parks Department.
The series has been divided into five separate sections. Four are chronological divisions; 1931-1936, 1936- 1945, 1946-1950 and 1950-1952. These records are arranged primarily by subject and chronologically within each file. The subjects are arranged alphabetically within each section, and many of them are repeated in each section. A fifth section covers general correspondence from 1935 to 1943. It would appear that this material was not grouped by subject. The file description also includes the original filing numbers

Victoria (B.C.). Parks and Recreation Department

Operational files

Series consists of files created by the City Solicitor from the first appointment to permanent staff of the City in 1910 to the contracting out of the work in 1956. Some files predate the appointment of a staff solicitor when the City's legal work was contracted out to various legal firms.
The files are arranged in their original order by subject in a numerical sequence from 1 to 1193 with some deletions as a result of weeding over the years. Sequencing reflects a chronological accumulation as matters came to the attention of the Solicitor. The series encompasses a complete range of all Solicitor activities and was probably the main record series for the Solicitor's office. Original access to the series was obtained through a set of three extant card indexes maintained by the Solicitor's office (CRS 120, Indexes to operational files).
