Collection History:

Daniel Cadzow trapped in the Edmonton, Alberta, area until about 1896, mined a claim on the Koyukuk River in Alaska, and operated a trading post at Rampart House in the Yukon Territory from 1903 until his death. He had a close relationship with his nephew, Donald A. Cadzow (1894-1960), who worked extensively for MAI as a field collector after 1916. This print probably given by Daniel Cadzow to Donald Cadzow, who transferred it to MAI along with his own photographs before 1928.
