RCMP Quarterly collection [textual records] / RCMP Quarterly Board
Administrative history / Biographical sketchThe Quarterly aims to maintain the link between the police community past and present and to continue to build on its legacy. Since its origins in 1933, the goal of The Quarterly has been to educate about tradition and tell the stories of the past and the RCMP of today.
The RCMP Veterans’ Association assumed responsibility for The Quarterly in October 1999 from the RCMP to ensure its survival and vitality.
The Quarterly is a vehicle for police officers, veterans, historians and students to learn about the past, keep abreast of policing trends and share programs, events and activities.
Although the RCMP Quarterly is not affiliated with the Vancouver Maritime Museum, the flagship exhibition of the museum, the St. Roch, was an RCMP vessel. Therefore, the historical contents of the quarterly, particularly the issues published during the operational years of the St. Roch, are relevant to the vessel's history.
