Prior to the creation of the Association of Professional Engineers of Manitoba in 1920 another engineering association was in existence across Canada. With a history dating back to 1887, the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers (currently the Engineering Institute of Canada) was a voluntary association with the goal of promoting and sharing engineering related knowledge amongst its members. In 1908 the first annual dinner of the Winnipeg branch was held at the Royal Alexandra. Provided is a copy of the original dinner program.

Provided is a copy of the 1922 List of Books and their library locations covering a wide range of engineering related topics.
