This paper, written on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Eastern Snow Conference, is intended to re-introduce a valuable repository of published work on snow and ice, the journals of the Canadian Institute. The Canadian Institute (since 1914 the Royal Canadian Institute) was a major outlet for a wide spectrum of pure and applied science, economics, literature and the arts in the latter half of the 19th century and the early years of this. Its journals were important vehicles for the work of Canadian and other scholars, notably physical scientists and engineers, for many decades. The Institute’s publications include The Canadian Journal, a Repertory of Industry, Science and Art, The Canadian Journal of Science, Literature and History, The Proceedings of the Canadian Institute, Proceedings of the Canadian Institute, (New Series). The current address of the Royal Canadian Institute, a good source for sets of these journals, is 720 Spadina Avenue, Suite 312, Toronto, Ontario, M5S 2T9.
