Awarded the Sainte-Marie prize for Canadian history of the seventeenth century.
In the early 1970s, R. Victor Stevenson began researching the island's military history and contributed a chapter about Yorke Island's wartime role to his and my book Vancouver Defended: A History of the Men and Guns of the Lower Mainland Defences, 1859-1949 (1978). The strength of this book is its account of living conditions on the island and its stories about the relationships that developed between the servicemen and civilians in this once-remote area.
Peter N. Moogk reviews "Peasant, Lord, and Merchant: Rural Society in Three Quebec Parishes, 1740-1840," by Allan Greer.
Collection consists of materials acquired by Peter Moogk and used in his research and his teaching activities. Four photocopied maps of the World War II Point Grey artillery battery were acquired by him from the Canadian Department of National Defence during research for his book Vancouver Defended. The remaining items - loose photographs, UBC publications, and a photograph album - were purchased by Moogk at collectors' shows and used as teaching materials for his UBC course History 304 "Local History from the Ground Up". Some of the latter materials are of uncertain provenance; the photograph album has been identified as originally belonging to Jean Woodrow (Arts '26).
