INTRODUCTION
This Supplement is designed to supply a double need:
it furnishes an analytical index to the entire series of
twenty volumes; and it affords a great deal of
additional information, bearing on the subject-matter of
these volumes, but which from its very nature it was
impossible to incorporate in the text. This additional
information includes biographical sketches of the
characters mentioned in each volume; similar
sketches of prominent Canadians who for one reason
or another do not appear in any of the twenty
volumes; and brief descriptions of wars, battles,
treaties, and political and other events having a vitalbearing on the history of Canada. References have
been added, wherever necessary, to the principal
sources which the student may consult for further
information. The whole has been thrown into one
alphabetical arrangement, and it constitutes, to a large
extent, a dictionary of Canadian history.
To satisfy further the desire of those who, after
reading the foregoing volumes, find it profitable to
investigate more fully certain lines of inquiry suggested
by the narratives, it has been thought advisable to add
a list of manuscript sources from which new material
may be gleaned. The collection of documents most
convenient for this purpose is to be found in the
Dominion Archives. It is not possible in the present
work to do more than indicate the principal
documents, as there are fifteen thousand volumes of
manuscript in the Archives bearing on Canadian
history. The sources indicated here are drawn
principally from the series designated A, B, C, F, Q,
M. The letter refers to the series, and the number to
the volume. The Calendars published by the Archives
in the Annual Reports should also be consulted by the
student. For convenience of reference, it has been
deemed preferable to group the manuscript sources
under general headings, and print the list as a
separate section in the volume.
In the preparation of the bibliographical references,
the object has been to include only those works that
have a direct and vital bearing on the subject. A
complete bibliography in each case would obviously be
neither possible nor desirable. Nor, except in special
cases, has any attempt been made to include articlesor papers in periodicals or in the publications of
learned societies. It will be sufficient to make a general
reference here to some of the more important sources
of information on the many topics covered in this
volume. First among these sources probably should
rank the publications of the Royal Society of Canada.
The Society has published in a separate volume a very
full General Index to its Proceedings and
Transactions, 1882-1906, compiled by Dr. Benjamin
Sulte. For volumes subsequent to 1906, the individual
indexes should be consulted. A key to the Annual
Reports of the Geological Survey of Canada is found
in two General Indexes, one covering the years 1863-
1884, and the other the years 1885-1906. The latter,
compiled by F. J. Nicolas, is very complete. Wurtële's
Index to the Transactions and other Publications of the
Literary and Historical Society of Quebec, 1829-1891,
furnishes a guide to the material issued by this oldest
of Canadian learned societies. Unfortunately, no
general index is available for the publications of the
Canadian Institute, which cover a very wide and
important field; nor for those of the Historical and
Scientific Society of Manitoba, the Ontario Historical
Society, the Nova Scotia Historical Society, and
various other Canadian institutions of a similar
character. Much important material, bearing on, or
supplementary to, the topics treated in the several
volumes of the Makers of Canada will be found in the
foregoing publications. The reader may also find it
profitable in many cases to consult the publications of
the American Historical Association, and the State
Historical Societies of New York, Maine, Michigan,
Wisconsin, and Minnesota. A great deal of important
material is also to be found in Canadian and otherperiodicals. Of the more significant of these, the
Revue Canadienne marked the completion of its fifty-
third volume in 1907 by publishing in separate form a
comprehensive Index to the entire series up to that
year. In consulting other Canadian magazines,
reference must in most cases be made to the
individual indexes in each volume. The series of the
Canadian Monthly and the New Dominion Monthly are,
however, fully covered by Poole's Index; the Canadian
Magazine, to a large extent, by Wilson's Guide to
Periodical Literature, as well as by a General Index
published by the magazine in 1907. A key to the
publications of several Canadian historical societies
and periodicals, since the year 1906, is furnished by
the Magazine Subject-Index (Boston). The three
admirable American guides mentioned above, that is,
Poole's Index, Wilson's Guide, and the Magazine
Subject-Index, with their annual or cumulative
supplements, provide also a key to the great body of
literature in the principal American and English
periodicals, bearing on Canadian topics.
Among other important guides to Canadian subjects,
historical, political, biographical, social, literary, and
scientific, should be mentioned the Review of
Historical Publications Relating to Canada, edited by
Wrong and Langton; Larned's Literature of American
History, which includes a section on Canada; the
various encyclopædias; the annual bibliographies of
Canadian scientific work published in the Transactions
of the Royal Society of Canada; Gagnon's Essai de
Bibliographie Canadienne; Morgan's Bibliotheca
Canadensis; James's Bibliography of Canadian Verse;
Horning and Burpee's Bibliography of CanadianFiction; Tanguay's Dictionnaire Généalogique des
Familles Canadiennes; and the very full bibliographies
of material published in or about the province of
Quebec, by Dr. N. E. Dionne. A general reference
may also be made here, for all subjects in this volume
relating to Canadian history, to such general works as
those of Parkman, Kingsford, Bourinot, Dent,
McMullen, Ferland, Faillon, Charlevoix, Bibaud,
Garneau, Sulte, Miles, Christie, Haliburton, Murdoch,
Campbell, Hannay, Bryce, and Begg. In addition to the
principal source of Canadian manuscript material, the
Archives at Ottawa, a large number of important
documents will be found in the Provincial Archives at
Halifax, Quebec, Toronto, Winnipeg, and Victoria, as
well as in the universities of Laval, McGill, and
Toronto. Finally, reference may be made to the
various biographical dictionaries in the accompanying
list.
The inclusion in the Supplement of several names of
Canadians, both living and dead, who are not of the
very first importance, and the omission of others who
filled at least as important a place in the history of the
country, will be explained largely by the fact that the
former were incidentally mentioned somewhere in the
series, and therefore had to be included, while the
latter were not.
