        On December 11th, 1858, in the midst of a gold rush, a man with the improbable name Amor de Cosmos inked up an old hand press and launched a newspaper -- the British Colonist -- into the world.? ??Published in Victoria, it beme the leading paper in the colonies of Vancouver Island and British Columbia, and was the paper for the province of British Columbia until the emergence of Vancouver and competitors in the 1890s.

        “In every thing that concerns British Columbia we shall take a deep and permanent interest” said de Cosmos, the “Lover of the Universe”, and so the paper did.?? From the extraordinary discoveries of gold and outbreaks of war, to the mundane shipping news and advertisements for insomnia cures, so much of the history of British Columbia and its people, exists only in the pages of this remarkable publition.

        This website contains all the issues of the British Colonist (also lled The Daily British Colonist, the Daily Colonist, and other variants) from its first issue in 1858 to December 1980. ??Once trapped between its crumbling covers, the chronicle of Victoria and British Columbia is now available at the click of a mouse.
