About this collection

Scrapbook Hansard is an historical collection of newspaper clippings and a few speech transcripts covering Alberta's legislative debates from 1906 to 1971.

Library staff began compiling articles as early as 1937 in order to retain a record of what transpired in the Assembly. Coverage includes the Throne Speech and debate, budget speech and debate, discussion of various bills introduced and passed in the House, and reports on the legislative discussion regarding issues of the day.

This collection is a valuable resource for researching the early history of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta prior to the creation of Alberta Hansard, the official record of the Legislative Assembly, in 1972. Articles will be added as they become available.
