Custodial History 


While in Whitehorse in early 1943, Paul Vergon purchased the photographs from a Bechtel, Price and Callahan employee. In January 1982, Vergon sent the photographs to MacBride Museum. The museum gave the originals to Yukon Archives in exchange for copies of 18 of the photographs. Vergon then donated the original photographs to Yukon Archives in March 1982.
