Name of creator
The Royal Over-Seas League was originally founded by Sir Evelyn Wrench in 1910 as a Commonwealth Society that aims to promote knowledge of the Commonwealth and to foster connections between those living in Britain and those living overseas. The Edmonton Branch of the Royal Over-Seas League was formed in 1953 and provided opportunities for members from all over the world to socialize, and extended a welcome to visitors from overseas. In 2005, the Calgary and Edmonton branches of the League merged to become the Alberta Chapter. Although they do not have a physical clubhouse located in Edmonton, the Royal Over-Seas League signed a reciprocal agreement with The Royal Glenora Club, allowing members to share services.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of four brochures and pamphlets published by the Royal Over-Seas League to spread awareness of its activities and mandate. Two of the brochures outline the aims, activities, and amenities of the League, with the other two focussed on the League House located in London and the Rules and By-laws of the Edmonton Branch. A copy of the League’s history is also present.
Immediate source of acquisition
This fonds was donated to the City of Edmonton Archives by the Royal Over-Seas League in 1976.
The material was arranged by the archivist in chronological order.
