Biographical history

Dr. Peter H. Bennett's first trip to the north was in August, 1948. On official business with the British High Commission he travelled up the Inside Passage to Skagway, Alaska, took the train to Carcross, Yukon, then the sternwheeler "Tutshi" to Ben-My-Chree. He gave lectures about the conditions of Britain in 1948. Dr. Bennett also spearheaded the campaign to designate Kluane Park as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. He was living in Victoria, B.C. in 1986.

Custodial history

The fonds was loaned for copying and donated (photographs 58-60) by Peter Bennett in 1986, via Loree Stewart of Heritage Branch, Yukon Government.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of photographs and ephemera collected on Dr. Bennett's 1948 trip to the Yukon. The photographs were copied from an album and show sternwheelers, scenes along the White Pass and Yukon Route (WP&YR), Carcross, Whitehorse, Minto, Burwash Landing, Stewart, Dawson City and Bear Creek. Also included are photocopies of a menu from the Arcade Cafe in Dawson City, and from the Kluane Inn Cafe; a fur export tax permit; an article on jewellry making in the Yukon; and an article written by Peter Bennett, "Up In The Yukon". There are also two pages of notes provided in 1985 by Loree Stewart of Heritage Branch, Yukon Government, about Dr. Bennett and his 1948 trip.
