Biographical history

Victory Loan Committees were established throughout BC in 1918 for the purpose of raising funds to reduce the debt of World War I. City Council spearheaded the organization of a committee in Enderby and canvassers were appointed for every district in the City and surrounding area. The Committe raised $53,650 and received from the BC Executive the Governor General's Honour Flag with 2 Crowns. Special Canvassing Districts associated with Enderby were also organized; Mara raised $5,500 and Sicamous raised $13,500.

Custodial history

Records were found in the basement of the City Hall building in 1987, when the Museum Society moved in. It is believed that the records were left at City Hall because the secretary of the Committee was none other than Hazel Rosoman, Assistant City Clerk.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of the records of the local Enderby Victory Loan Committee from 1918-1919. Includes a committee meeting minute book (Oct-Nov. 1918) which details the events and activities conducted by the community in their effort to fund-raise for the war debt. Also includes a report produced by the B.C. Victory Loan Executive (1918-1919) detailing the Victory Loan status, as well as the amount of support from local chapters throughout the province.
