Kingston Penitentiary Inmates

Library and Archives Canada has made available online four volumes of records about Kingston Penitentiary inmates (link in Resources below). Most of the records date from about 1912 to 1919, with a small number of earlier or later records.

Each page includes a pair of photographs (mug shots), a physical description of the inmate, date and place of sentencing, and the crime for which he was convicted. In some cases, a newspaper clipping about the crime has been pasted into the ledger.  The inmates' names are searchable on the LAC website, or -- for easier browsing -- try the list below.

  • Book 1     January 1900* - September 1912  (*five records pre-date 1900)
  • Book 2    April 1913 - August 1916
  • Book 3    January 1915 - April 1916
  • Book 4    August 1916 - September 1919
