No biographical information available.
In 1991, Agnes Chidgey of Edmonton, Alberta, donated the material to the Provincial Archives of Alberta. Her husband, Bill Chidgey purchased the collection at a garage sale in the 1950s. The individual holding the garage sale noted that her father had worked at the Armed Forces Station in the Yukon during the construction of the Alaskan Highway. When the project was completed, the American troops left, and the station was dismantled. Instead of throwing the discs away, the individual's father kept them, and loaned the discs to a Yukon radio station. When the station no longer needed the discs, the station returned the discs.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of 34 transcription discs played on the Armed Forces Station in the Yukon during the construction of the Alaskan Highway dating from 1942-1943.
