Name of creator
Adelien Larson is the daughter of P.E. Larss, the Klondike photographer who spent six years in the Yukon photographing the scenery and recording activities of the men and women who participated in the Klondike Gold Rush. Adelien found her father's notebook and photographs which had been in storage for fifty years and put a collection together for the Alaska Historical Library in Juneau and a collection for the Nevada State Museum in Carson City.
The paper was donated to the Yukon Archives by John Grainger who acquired the copy from the Alaska State Historical Library in Juneau.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of a copy of a typewritten account Adelien Larson wrote about her father entitled, "The Photo Fiend of Dawson City P.E. Larss, Frontier Photographer and Gold Miner 1898-1904". In the paper P.E. Larss' early career in photography is described, as well as his travels to and experiences in the Klondike Gold Fields. Excerpts from Larss' notebooks are incorporated into this brief biography, as well as a brief description of his life after he left the Yukon in 1904.
