The textual records include biographical information about individuals involved with the construction of the Alaska Highway; Department of National Defence material; meteorological documents about the coldest recorded day in North America; and articles about telecommunications in the north, the Canol pipeline, and Atlin, B.C. and the road building project to the community.
