Name of creator
A professor of mining and metallurgy, Milnor Roberts served a Dean of the College of Mining at the University of Washington, 1901-1947. During the first few decades of the twentieth century, he was engaged in several reconnaissance trips to the coal fields on Graham Island, British Columbia, the largest of the Queen Charlotte Islands.
The records were held in the Timberlands and Properties Division of MacMillan and Blodel, consulted by H.R. MacMillan in 1964 and subsequently returned to the Division. They were transferred to U.B.C. Special Collections on April 19, 2000 by the Assistant Secretary of Weyhaueser Co. Ltd.
Scope and content
The Milnor Roberts fonds consists of letters, reports, notes, accounts, drawings and maps, photographs and printed material relating to his mine field work. Much of the material relates to the work carried out near Camp Robertson and Camp Wilson on behalf of Western Coal and Iron. Roberts' reports to Metropolitan Trust Co., New York, concerned lands acquired by the company from Western Steel Corporation in 1913.
