History

The Canadian Historical Association was founded in 1922 by Lawrence Burpee

In 1922, Burpee presented a new constitution for the Historic Landmarks Association, it was adopted and the organization changed its name and objectives Burpee’s model for the Canadian Historical Association was based on the American Historical Association

The first Canadian Historical Association Executive and Council included George Wrong, Chester Martin, Arthur Doughty, Pierre-Georges Roy and James Kenny, Lawrence Burpee, William Douw Lighthall and Frederic William Howay Marius Barbeau, the anthropologist, was its founding Secretary

Lighthall nominated Burpee for the presidency of the Canadian Historical Association Burpee was president from 1923 to 1925 and continued his involvement as chairman of the management committee until 1934

Over the course of the 1920s, the Canadian Historical Association saw its annual meeting become a scholarly conference It also became a social event for historians to reconnect with each other In 1926, Frank Underhill wrote a letter to Charles Cochrane, the Secretary-Treasurer at the time, encouraging the Canadian Historical Association to model its annual meeting after the American Historical Association Underhill later suggested that the annual meeting be organized around a particular theme Cochrane agreed to both suggestions In 1927, the annual meeting was held at the University of Toronto The format in 1927 became the basic format of the annual meeting In 1928, the annual meeting was held in Winnipeg

In 1929, the Honourable Rodolphe Lemieux became president, he was succeeded by the Right Honourable Robert Borden In 1931, Frederic William Howay became president and he was succeeded by Dr John Clarence Webster in 1932

In 1933, the Canadian Historical Association held its annual meeting in conjunction with the Canadian Political Science Association They met separately, but gathered for a joint session and some social events

In 1935, Norman Fee was the English Secretary-Treasurer Based on the success of their joint meeting in 1933, the Canadian Historical Association and the Canadian Political Science Association established a joint membership in 1936 for four dollars

In 1937, the Canadian Historical Association was invited by the CBC to prepare a series of radio broadcasts on forgotten Canadians The Canadian Historial Association created a Radio Committee with Toronto’s George Glazebrook as chair Over twelve months the committee paired specific historians with specific topics in a series of twenty-seven broadcasts

In late 1939, the Royal Society of Canada approached the Canadian Historical Association and the Canadian Political Science Association with an offer to become subgroups of the Royal Society of Canada Donald Creighton and Reginald Trotter meet with representatives of the Royal Society of Canada and the Canadian Political Science Association to say that the Canadian Historical Association would not accept this offer
