Handbook to Winnipeg and the Province of Manitoba
Prepared for the 79th Annual Meeting of the British Association for the Advancemet of Science 1909


The Publication Committee of the Local Executive, desire to express their indebtedness to the authors of the articles contained in this Handbook, for their hearty and gratuitous co operation in the preparation of the volume. All the contributors can lay claim to special knowledge of the subjects upon which they have written.

The Committee desire also to record their gratitude to Mr. James White, Chief Geographer, Ottawa, for the trouble he has taken in arranging for the preparation of the maps and charts included in the Handbook. They wish further to express their indebtedness to the Minister of the Interior for having generously presented these to the Committee.

It is hoped that this volume will be not only of interest to the visiting members of the British Association, but also of some permanent value.
