Manuscript essays and addresses

Sub-subseries consists of manuscript essays and addresses on scientific subjects falling into four categories: (1) popular lectures, not only on geology, but also on biology, entomology, physics, archaeology and even linguistics; (2) mining, particularly of Nova Scotia coal, with some reports and maps; (3) geology, largely of Nova Scotia, and (4) palaeontology (approximately 72 cm). Some of the materials in sub-subseries are drafts of works later published, and these papers also contain 80 cm of Dawson's printed books and articles.

Dawson, John William, Sir, 1820-1899

Notebooks and scrapbooks

Sub-subseries consists of approximately ten of Dawson's scientific notebooks (box 29). Most are pocket memoranda, but some are more discursive, such as a notebook on Nova Scotia geology and one of geological notes from the 1860s and 1870s. Three scrapbooks bear directly on science: "Scientific Scraps" is largely pictorial material; "Scraps relating to science and religion", despite its title, is mostly Dawson's published articles on geology, education, and travel (boxes 39-40); finally, a scrapbook of clippings programmes and photographs serves as a souvenir of Dawson's presidential meeting of the BAAS in Birmingham, 1886 (box 77).


The sub-subseries consists of twenty miscellaneous geological maps, charts, and plans of Egypt, Sinai Peninsula, Rome, Manitoba, British Columbia, Northwest Territories, Newfoundland, New Brunswick, the eastern part of British North America, Snake River, Montana, Wyoming, Wisconsin, St. Lawrence River, Cumberland Coal Field, North Pole, and Pictou Harbour. Maps are both printed and hand-drawn.
