The Thomas K. Fleming research collection consists of materials related to the settler colonial history of British Columbia, and more broadly, the Pacific Northwest and Canada. Record types include correspondence, newsletters, press clippings, printed materials, notes, maps, legal documents, as well as Fleming`s stamp collection and associated records. Historical records in the collection include content primarily from the nineteenth to early twentieth century on such subjects as forestry, travel, commerce, and postal history. The collection has been arranged into two series: Historical Records and Research Subject Files series, and Stamp Collection and Related Materials series.

Historical records and research subject files

The series consists of historical records acquired by Fleming as well as research subject files he created in his study of British Colombian history. Subjects include the Alaska American/Canadian border dispute, British Columbia settler colonial history, the forestry and timber industry, trade and commerce in the Pacific Northwest, and particularly the Nootka crisis and the expedition of Alessandro Malaspina. Record types include correspondence, indentures, pamphlets, articles, notes, presentation materials, and photographs from Fleming's research related travel.
