Roderick Haig-Brown, author, environmentalist and Justice of the Peace, was born in Sussex, England. He moved to B.C. in 1927, where he worked as a logger, trapper, guide and fisherman. He returned to England in 1929 where he remained until 1931 to publish his first book, Silver. In 1934 Haig-Brown and his wife Ann moved to Campbell River, B.C. and purchased their now famous residence in 1936. Haig-Brown's writings include books, articles and short stories about fish and fishing, books for and about boys and books on Canadian history. Haig-Brown was not only a writer but also a magistrate and judge of the juvenile court of Campbell River and Chancellor of the University of Victoria from 1970 to 1973.
The fonds consists of biographical material relating to Roderick Haig-Brown, correspondence (1928-1976), manuscripts of prose, articles, speeches, and broadcasts by Haig-Brown and others (circa 1926-1976), as well as clippings of prose, articles, speeches, printed materials, subject files, scrapbooks, and maps. The fonds also includes Haig-Brown's magistrate's notes and notebooks, financial records, and almost one thousand photographic negatives pertaining to Haig-Brown's personal life and research interests. Much of the fonds relates to sport fishing in British Columbia and, more broadly, to the conservation of natural resources. Fonds includes manuscript and printed maps with annotations pertaining to B.C. fisheries and the topography of B.C.
