Abstract

SPANISH ACTIVITY along the Pacific Northwest Coast from 1774 to 1793 has attracted a moderate amount of scholarly attention, including monographs by Warren Cook, Donald Cutter, and John Kendrick, as well as the publication, often in translation, of archival materials - logs, reports, and official correspondence. While he played no role in the confrontation between Spain and Great Britain over Nootka Sound (on the west coast of Vancouver Island) in 1789-90, he was selected in 1792 to be the Spanish agent for implementing the terms of the three conventions that defused the crisis through a mutual renunciation of territorial sovereignty and of claims to exclusive commerce and navigation.
