Abstract:

"Part 14 of the BOA series: British Records on the Atlantic World, 1700-1900. The Canadian Papers of the 4th Earl of Minto (1845-1914) are an important collection of documents that cover his time both as Military Secretary between 1883 and 1886 and as Governor General from 1899 to 1904. Born Gilbert Elliot-Murray-Kynynmound, the eldest son of the 3rd Earl of Minto, he became Viscount Melgund in 1859 and the Earl of Minto in 1891. After Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge, he embarked on a military career that included duty in Afghanistan and Egypt and he also gained experience in colonial administration as Private Secretary to Lord Roberts in the Cape Colony. After serving as Military Secretary and Governor General in Canada he went on to emulate his great grandfather, the 1st Lord Minto, by becoming Viceroy of India from 1905 to 1910. 1883 to 1885 saw the first of his two significant periods of involvement in Canadian history, as Military Secretary in Canada during the Governor Generalship of Lord Lansdowne (1883-1888). His papers from this time include material concerning his efforts to raise a voluntary Canadian force to serve in Egypt, the employment of Canadian forces in the imperial service more generally and the Riel Rebellion of 1885 against the Conservative Government of Sir John Macdonald. His second period of office in Canada began in 1898 when he became Governor General, serving until 1904. His papers from this period include correspondence and memoranda of conversations with Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the Liberal Prime Minister. This material refers to Canadian participation in imperial defence, especially the Boer War, and to the Alaskan Boundary dispute with the USA during the Presidency of Theodore Roosevelt. So, too, does his correspondence with Joseph Chamberlain, the British Colonial Secretary, and Lord Lansdowne, then Secretary for War (though later Foreign Secretary). The collection also includes interesting documents relating to his trips to the Klondike in 1900 and to Japan in 1903. Overall, Minto's Canadian papers afford a valuable insight into the relationship between the British Government and its senior Dominion during a crucial phase of British imperial history. Published from the mss. Collections of the National Library of Scotland, and with an introduction by Dr Tony McCulloch, Director of Canadian Studies at Canterbury Christ Church University, the first period, 1883-1885, covers Minto's service as Military Secretary, and comprises: Ms. 12378(i), Ms. 12507 & Mss. 12549-55; while the second period, 1899-1904, during his governorship-general, comprises: Ms. 12372(i), Ms. 12381, Ms. 12382(i), Ms. 12452(ii), & Ms. 12556-87."--britishonlinearchives.co.uk.
