1965 - Publication of Historical Statistics of Canada

In 1959, the Canadian Political Science Association proposes the creation of a reference book on Canadian historical statistics for use by students and scholars. They approach the Social Science Research Council of Canada with the idea and the council decides to cosponsor the project. M.C. Urquhart and K.A.H. Buckley are the editors, overseeing a group of researchers who create tables of documents on everything from education to natural resources. The book is published on June 9, 1965. After several revisions, it remains a valuable resource for Canadian statistics.
