Administrative history

The office of the German Consulate General was established in Montreal, Quebec in 1909. In 1937 the office was moved to Ottawa, but a German consulate remained in Montreal to handle commercial matters. Its offices were at 317 Keefer Bldg, Montreal.

Custodial history

While the chain of custody which resulted in the acquisition of these records is not clear, existing documentation indicates that the records were acquired by University Librarian W. Kaye Lamb sometime after the Second World War.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of the correspondence, reports, and memoranda (1935-1939) of the Consul General. Also included are Montreal office papers dating from 1919 and a few original documents from the Vancouver Consulate (1909-1911). There are copies of correspondence from the German Consulates at Ottawa, St . John's, Newfoundland, Toronto, Winnipeg, and Vancouver. The papers reflect trade relations between Canada and Germany as well as between Canada and other countries, with some reference to related
political and economic affairs in Canada (e.g.. the Canadian boycott of German goods, the attitude of the Canadian Press) and economic affairs in Germany (e.g., the economic policies of the German Reich). Frequent correspondents represented in the fonds include: Dr. Anton Wagner, Commercial Attache, Montreal; L. Kempff, Consul General, Montreal (1922-1935); Schafthausen, Consul General, Montreal and Ottawa, (1937); Dr. H. Eckner, Montreal, (1938); Granow, Ottawa, (1937-1939); Koechlin ,Montreal, (1939); Windels, Ottawa, (1938-1939). Occasional correspondents include: Dr. W.T . Hinrichs, Montreal, (1934); M. Lorenz, Montreal, (1927); Dannenburg, Montreal, (1938); Dr. M. Schlimpert, Montreal, (1935); Rodde, Winnipeg; R. S. Furlong, Consul, St . John's, Newfoundland; H. W. Mahler, Vancouver, (1939). The files fall into two categories, general and personal.

Location of originals

The UBC Library was contacted by the Vancouver German Consulate in 2010, and informed that efforts have been underway to repatriate records removed from German Consulates from around the world during the war. The Library has deaccessioned the records, and returned them in December 2011.
