Scope & content

Work on this collection is underway. Some features may be unavailable or non-functional.

The collection consists of clippings, reports, ephemera, and other documents related to specific vessels (ships, tugs, etc.), primarily those active in Vancouver and the Pacific. The reference files also cover subjects such as locations, people, organizations, and shipping lines. Documentation may be in its original form or photocopies.

The collection is organized into files, alphabetically by ship name. Please consult file level descriptions for more information.


The Vancouver Maritime Museum staff and volunteers maintain clippling files on vessels active in Vancouver and the Pacific. Donations of discrete items pertaining to a given ship are also placed in these files.

Please note that because this collection is a Reference Files collection, materials in this collection may not be archival in nature and may not be primary source materials. This means that dates and descriptions at the series- and file-level may not be creation dates, but rather dates of existence of the entity being described.
