Canadian Letters and Images

Logo Canadian Letters and Images

The digital project Canadian Letters and Images presents letters and letter collections from the wars in which Canadian soldiers fought. The project has been created by Stephen Davies, Vancouver Island University, Nanaimo, British Columbia. For the First World War there is a separate section, with some 300 letters. The letters can be searched with a keyword search.  Poetry is often mentioned in letters, and the texts of some poems are present in letters. In the overview of collections the letters are shown in alphabetical order with an entry for each author. This information is linked to resources at Libraries and Archives Canada. The section Special items contains digitized versions of two letter collections concerning the First World War with both 300 letters first published in two Ontario newspapers.
