Canadian Oil and Refinery Company Ltd. fonds


Physical Description:
75 cm of textual records

The Canadian Oil and Refinery Company was incorporated in Alberta in 1922 to acquire and develop petroleum leases and operate a refinery. The company's head office and refinery were in Lethbridge. It held leases east of Coutts, along the international boundary, and drilled one well ca. 1922. The well never produced, and the company was struck off in 1931.

Custodial History:
These records were salvaged from the Hollinsworth Building, owned by Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, before the Bankers Hall renovations were begun. The company, or its representatives probably had offices in the building.

Scope and Content:
The fonds consists of lease agreements, alphabetical correspondence files, and financial statements.

Source of Acquisition:
Gift of Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, 1983.
