English Literature Research Collection [PDF][158KB]

This collection, held in the University Archives, was created by David Macaree, a lecturer and professor in the English Department at UBC. He conducted extensive research in the area of 18th century English literature. The collection includes transcribed typed copies of the complete works of David Crawford (ca.1700); a copy of an article written by Macaree about Crawford (1961); and photocopies of early political pamphlets by Daniel Defoe (ca. 1700-1714).
