Doukhobor Centenary in Canada
FOR THREE DAYS IN OCTOBER 1999, delegates gathered at the University of Ottawa to exchange ideas on the hundred-year history of the Russian Doukhobors on Canadian soil, as well as the events leading up to the arrival of some 7,500 of their ancestors from the Caucasus.
The collection was created ca 1962. Following the establishment of the Slavonic Studies Department at the University of British Columbia, and faculty involvement in Doukhobor research and consultative committees in the 1940s and 1950s, the library staff began to develop and maintain clipping files, and to assemble all available printed information on the Doukhobors.
