Henry Crease collection

  • CA UVICARCH SC560
  • Fonds
  • ca. 1860

Stole is made of red felt and is embroidered with a bead floral design. Each side measures approximately 60 cm. Crease likely acquired the stole in the 1860s while he traveled with Supreme Court Judge Matthew Baillie Begbie on a circuit throughout British Columbia, and it was presumably passed down to several family members. A plate accompanies the stole, which reads:

"The stole was presented to the Law Library by Miss Laura Lindley Roff, class of 1984. She told us that it had been presented to her great grandfather, Mr. Justice Crease, when he was on circuit in the interior of the province. Miss Roff told us that she had been told that the Aboriginal people thought the black judicial robes were dull and needed brightening."

Crease, Henry Pering Pellew, 1823-1905
