Biographical history

Reverend Arthur Creighton McCullum was an Anglican Parish Priest in the Yukon Territory from 1925 to 1940. Born February 22, 1896 in Ontario Rev. McCullum received his Licentiate in Theology (L.Th.) from Wycliffe College in Toronto, in 1925. He began as a young deacon in 1925 on Herschel Island and Shingle Point, and a year later was ordained priest in the mission of Old Crow. He served in northern Yukon until 1928, in Mayo from 1929 to 1934, and in Dawson City from 1935 to 1940. In 1929 he married Charlotte Emogene Nicholson and they had three children. Rev. McCullum died in Kingston, Ontario in October 1970.
