Name of creator
A.C. (Nick) Nixon was appointed Major and was a Canadian representative on the joint U.S. - Canadian Alaska Highway Traffic Control Board with headquarters in Whitehorse, Yukon.
The fonds was donated to the Yukon Archives by A.C. (Nick) Nixon's daughter, Gail Palko, in 2006.
Scope and content
The scrapbook (which includes 150 photographs and newspaper clippings) and individual photographs depicts images along the Alaska Highway during its construction and completion, as well as scenes of Yukon and Alaska. There are also interesting shots of Major Nixon and his friends at social events and in their Whitehorse barracks. The textual records include newspaper clippings collected by Nixon; Northwest Service Command (NWSC) correspondence, minutes, notes, memos and reports; and a description of the Alaska Highway, possibly a news release.
