Charles S. Hubbell collection

  • CA yuk yuk-436
  • Collection
  • Copied before 1983 (originally created 1865-1940)

The collection consists of four photocopied typewritten diaries that were kept by men who were in the Robert Kennicott party involved in building the Western Union Telegraph line from a point in British Columbia to the Bering Strait. (The Kennicott party left New York by ship in 1865, then went on to San Francisco, and St. Michael and spent the winter of 1865-1866 in the Yukon.) The titles of the diaries are as follows: P. M. Smith's Diary - August 26, 1865 to March 22, 1867; Unknown Author September 26, 1865 to March 23, 1866; George R. Adams' Diary April 26, 1866 to June 11, 1866; George R. Adams' Diary October 1, 1866 to October 8, 1867. Included also is an index, and a foreword written by C. S. Hubbell in 1940 which provides some background about the Kennicott party. A handwritten note included with the index suggests that the unknown author was George R. Adams, and the name on the first diary is Fred M. Smith, not P. M. Smith.
