Name of creator
The Arctic Brotherhood consisted of a Grand Camp and a number of Subordinate Camps located in various communities throughout Alaska, Yukon and Northern BC, including Skagway, Dawson, Nome, Atlin and Whitehorse. The Grand Camp was composed of Past Grand Officers and a specified number of delegates elected by the subordinate camps. Membership was open to "any male person over 18 years of age and of good moral character". Function: The Whitehorse Camp, like other subordinate Camps, was established to "encourage and promote social and intellectual intercourse and benevolence among, and to particularly advance the interests of its members and that of the Northwest section of North America".
Scope and content
The fonds consists of the records of the Whitehorse Camp of the Arctic Brotherhood, 1901-1903 and includes Minute books, 1901-1903; a cash book, 1901-1902; membership applications, 1901-1902; incoming and outgoing correspondence, 1901-1902; financial records, 1901-1903; constitution and by-laws, 1902; membership application forms and a blank membership card. The minute book begins with the installation of the Camp, its charter members, first officers etc. and covers the application, nomination and subsequent election of new members; financial matters, dues bills etc; correspondence received and answered and other internal business. The cash book and assorted financial records provide a relatively accurate picture of the Camp's financial situation.
