Scope and content
Sub-series consists of postal history record cards documenting changes of postmasters at individual post offices located across Canada. Beginning in the early 1950s the preparation of the cards was undertaken by the Public Affairs Unit using the files and letterbooks that were eventually turned over to the National Archives of Canada. The cards relate to open and closed civilian and military post offices located in the ten provinces and two territories. Information usually found on a history card incorporates the following elements: name of place, date of establishment, date of closing, name changes, name of postmaster, military status, date of birth, date of appointment, date of vacancy, cause of vacancy and location changes of the post office. Volumes 3528-3533 consist of 29 binders containing photocopies of the postal history cards for offices in the Province of Quebec. These cards duplicate, complement and help complete the postal history card holdings. In particular, the binders contain the cards for the Montreal regional offices which were not previously available.
