Dates of existence


Edward Phelps acquired most of the stock of the Insurers' Advisory Organization headquarters in Toronto in 1974 when the IAO closed its Plan Division. After distributing much of the collection, Phelps offered a set of fire insurance plans for Canada to the University of British Columbia Library in 1982. Before moving to computer applications, fire insurance plans provided fire underwriters with sufficient information at a glance on which to base risk assessments. They yield a great deal of information including building materials and design as well as existing fire hazards and the proximity of water supplies.
