Scope and content

Series forms part of the Halifax Relief Commission fonds and consists of minutes of the executive and management commmittee of the Halifax Relief Committee from 6 December 1917 to 28 January 1918 and two journals and indexes kept by the committee treasurer, and continued by the commission, to record contributions to the Halifax Relief Fund from 10 December 1917 to 20 April 1918. Journals indicate date, name of donor, whether an organization or individual, where from, amount contributed, and total amount of funds. Donors were mostly from across Canada and the United States, although there are some from Europe, the West Indies, and other regions. One of the indexes includes a report of funds donated to the Halifax Relief Fund as of 5 January 1918 under the heading of province, state, or country, and total amounts contributed.
