Biographie / Histoire administrative

Charles E. Goad was born in England in 1848. He emigrated to Canada in 1869 and eventually began business as a cartographer. His first insurance plan, made in 1875, was of Levis, Quebec. In 1881, Goad published a periodical entitled Insurance Society which was intended to advertise insurance plan productions. In 1885 Goad returned to England to open a new office in London. In 1910 he died, and, following his death, the company was reorganized and operated under the name Charles E. Goad Company. This firm was responsible for a major share of the insurance plans produced in Canada. The firm withdrew from the insurance plan business in 1917. In 1931 the company was bought out by Underwriter's Survey Limited and the London branch became the Head Office. This last date marks the cessation of the firm's cartographic work in Canada.

Information additionnelle

A photographic copy of advertising circular 41 is available in the Documentary Art and Photography Division. See negative number C-61912 and C-61913. No record of this material could be found so the material was not integrated.

Microfilm copy of the fonds was received in 1989 from the Regional Collection, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario.

Note sur le classement
The atlases are catalogued according to the Library of Contress G schedule by province and alphabetically by city and village. For convenience, a microfiche may group up to two sheets for the same city or village.
