Biographical history

Father A.G. Morice was a priest of the Oblate Order who served as a missionary to the Chilcotin Indians until 1885 when he was sent to Fort St. James, Stuart Lake. While at the Indian missions, Morice invented a syllabary for the Dene languages and printed catechisms and prayer books in those languages. A prolific writer, Morice's many works included histories of Western Canada and the Catholic Church.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds consists of proofs of Morice's autobiography Fifty Years in Western Canada (1931) and five letters to Dr. Robert Bell, relating primarily to Morice's writings, particularly Indian legends.
