Author Bio for Doughty, Arthur G. (Arthur George), Sir

Arthur Doughty (1860-1936) was Chief Archivist of the Archives of Canada from 1904 to 1935. Born in England, he emigrated to Canada in 1886. While serving as a legislative librarian in Quebec he noticed that the precise location of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham was in dispute which drew his attention to the neglected state of Canada's archives. His efforts to improve this oversight brought him to the attention of federal authorities and in 1904 he was appointed as Dominion Archivist and Keeper of the Records. Over the next 31 years, he established the Public Archives of Canada (now called Library and Archives Canada) and greatly increased the collection of historical materials. In addition to his archivist duties, he collaborated with Adam Shortt in the creation of a 23 volume encyclopedia called "Canada and its Provinces" which was issued over four years 1913-1917. He also helped create "Documents relating to the constitutional history of Canada, 1759-1791" which was issued in 1918. (Canadian Encyclopedia)
