NOTES TO THE PREFACE
1.
Wilson Duff, The Indian History of British Columbia: Vol. 1. The Impact of the White Man, Anthropology in British Columbia, Memoir no. 5 ( Victoria: Provincial Museum, 1964), p. 91.
2.
D. L. S., Fifty Years in Western Canada, Being the Abridged Memoirs of Rev. A. G. Morice, O.M.I. ( Toronto: Ryerson, 1930). Despite his denials, it is clear that Morice wrote Fifty Years himself. There are two possible reasons for him to have hidden this fact. In the first place, the book is luxuriant in its praise of Morice, and he probably felt that such self praise would have little credibility. Secondly, the book alleges (pp. 237-45) that Morice was persecuted by his superiors. These superiors would not have given the requisite approval for its publication; hence the need for subterfuge. Morice had previously used the pseudonym "de la Seine" (D. L. S.), and the Oblate archives in Winnipeg contain a contract between Morice and Ryerson Press for the publication of Fifty Years. The contract refers to Morice as the "author." "Agreement Between Rev. A. G. Morice, O.M.I. and the Ryerson Press," APO.

Thomas Flanagan, "Problems of Psychobiography," Queen's Quarterly 89 ( 1982): 596,608. For an example of an uncritical evaluation of Morice, see T. P. Jost, "Rev. A. G. Morice, Discoverer and Surveyor, and the Problems of the Proper Geographical Names in North Central British Columbia," Revue de l'Université d'Ottawa 37 ( 1967): 463-76.
4.
G. R. Elton, The Practice of History ( London: Collins, 1961), p. 169.

G. L. Granatstein, "Interviewing for Fun and Profit: The Conservative Party, 1956-1967, " Sound Heritage 3 ( 1974): 18.

Leo LaClare, "Report of the Oral History Committee of the Canadian Historical Association's Archives Section," Sound Heritage 3 ( 1974): 19.
7.
Imbert Orchard of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation recorded stories about Morice which contain glaring inaccuracies. These recordings have been incorporated into the tape collection of the Aural History Institute of British Columbia (AHIBC). See, for example, the oral evidence of Constance Cox, cassette 313, 5, AHIBC, PABC.
