Biography / Administrative history
From 1842 to 1867, A.J. Russell served as the agent of the Crown Timber Office in the Upper Ottawa region collecting various revenues for the Province of Canada. The provinces of Ontario and Quebec sought to separate revenues arising from their respective territory. The A.J. Russell agency was asked by S.B. Wood, the Treasurer of Ontario, to prepare a breakdown of the monies collected, according to the provinces where it had been collected. RG19 General Inventory
