Abstract

The Canadian Letters and Images Project, supported by Vancouver Island University, the Canadian War Museum, and the Governor General of Canada, is an online archive featuring Canadians' war correspondence. Ranging from pre-1914 wars, including the American Civil War, it has individual collections on all major twentieth-century wars. Its emphasis is on the everyday and on the rank-and-file, as opposed to military or civilian leaders. Providing students, teachers, and researchers with access to letters, as well as diaries, photographs, and related materials, the site's holdings are both browseable by collection and text searchable. The project, as it states, pursues the objective of putting a "human face to war" through materials provided primarily by private citizens and families, which are digitized and returned to their owners.
