Scope and content

This fonds consists of records of the Yukon Fish and Game Association from 1945 to 1970, and includes sound recordings of interviews conducted by the Association in November 1950 with Patsy Henderson about George Carmack's discovery of gold and its impact on native culture; and with Isaac Taylor and William Drury about early trade.
