Rose, Ainsley Bernard. "A Historical account of Canadian participation in international ice hockey, 1948-1970." Thesis (M.S.). University of Western Ontario, 1976.

AB: This thesis explores Canada's involvement in international ice hockey between 1920 and 1970 with a focus on the later half of the study period. It is determined that Canada's unprecedented withdrawal from international hockey in 1970 was primarily a result of the dominance of the National Hockey League coupled with the lack of strong administration in the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association. Alberta's contribution to Canada's international efforts during this period are mentioned throughout with a particular highlight on the Edmonton Waterloo Mercurys [p34,39-40] and the generosity of the citizens of Lethbridge who pledged more money to support their team internationally then the C.A.H.A. itself [p37].
