Miscellaneous Materials

Series consists of four files:

  1. Publications
  2. Other Materials
  3. Speech Notes
  4. General Notes

One accompanying compact disc contains scanned images of the Almanac, map, children’s rhymes, two Tibetan songs, and a verse for a New Year’s toast, and philatelic materials.

Other miscellaneous material

The ‘Publications’ file consists of one bound, 59-page Almanac with pages wood block-printed with Tibetan text. A folded rice paper envelope accompanies the Almanac and has a handwritten annotation that reads, “Almanac of Iron Bird Year from Feb 28, ’21 to Mar 2, ’22.” Supplementary information provided by Father Donald indicates that this Almanac was printed specifically for British/Indian government use, although its contents is unknown. Also included in this file is a published map of Tibet titled, “North-Eastern Frontier,” and dated July 1905. Of significance is the map’s close temporal association with the (Francis) Younghusband Expedition of 1904, a famous military mission to Tibet. The file also includes more recent materials such as two newspaper clippings (1974; n.d.), a program guide to a service held for the Dalai’s visit to Vancouver (1980), a newspaper (“News Tibet,” 1988), and two newsletters (1988, 1989).

Speech notes

The ‘Speech Notes’ consist of handwritten notes on Tibet written for a talk Col. Parker was to make to the Royal Overseas League in Victoria, B.C., on 8 May 1961. Included are notes on Tibet’s history, population, Parker’s journeys through the country, Gyantze, Lhasa, religion, trade, troops, and the ‘wheel of life’ among other topics. A second set of notes gives a brief outline of his military life (most in India) up to 1947.
