MHS Resources: Transactions of the Manitoba Historical Society

Jump to:
First Series | Second Series | Third Series

In 1879, one of the first initiatives of the newly formed Manitoba Historical and Scientific Society was support for public lectures on a range of topics. These lectures were later published as the Transactions of the Manitoba Historical and Scientific Society, or Transactions for short. Seventy-two Transactions had been published by 1909, when the Society entered a period of inactivity. These are referred to as the First Series. This was followed by the Second Series (sometimes called the New Series) published between the World Wars, from 1926 to 1936. Finally, the Third Series was published starting in 1944. It was joined in 1956 by the Society's magazine Manitoba Pageant. Both were succeeded in 1980 by the journal Manitoba History.

MHS Transactions were originally published by the Manitoba Historical Society on the above date. We make online versions available as a free, public service. As an historical document, Transactions may contain language that is no longer in common use and which may offend some readers. They should not be construed to represent the views of today’s Manitoba Historical Society.

This online version was prepared using Optical Character Recognition software so that spelling and punctuation errors may have occurred inadvertently. If you find any such errors, please inform us, indicating the document name and error.
