-Recording his early career, the Archives of British Columbia holds some papers listed in the Government Records Catalogue, GR-1738, and occasional references in the Non-Government Records Catalogue, e.g. MS-1240 and MS-0207. ​ These cover the period of time when he was in Victoria, serving as Provincial Librarian and Archivist, 1934-40. ​ From 1940-1948, he served as Librarian of the University of British Columbia, and that institution remained a very special connection for him for the rest of his life.  As a result, not only does the Library hold records on his career there, but later in life, he donated a number of items to Special Collections including the bulk of his notes and papers relating to the major four-volume work he edited on the voyages of Captain George Vancouver, and a number of other records relating to works on the Pacific Northwest. ​ Of  very special interest to him at UBC was the Howay Reid Collection, a collection that he acquired for the Library. ​ He had been a great friend of both Judge Howay and Robie Reid, and both during his lifetime and after his death, rare and/or valuable works relating to the exploration of the Pacific Northwest were donated to UBC to supplement this collection. ​ As far as archival records go,  he is represented in the UBC Archives in The Lamb Research collection, 1959-1991, which contains 1.3 m of textual records and in the Library fonds, 1908-1995.\\+Recording his early career, the Archives of British Columbia holds some papers listed in the Government Records Catalogue, GR-1738, and occasional references in the Non-Government Records Catalogue, e.g. MS-1240 and MS-0207.
