Biographical history

The Yukon Historical Society was established in Whitehorse in 1950 by a group of residents who saw the need to preserve the history of the community and the Yukon Territory. In 1976 the name was changed to the MacBride Museum Society in honour of William D. MacBride who devoted much of his time to the museum. The museum collects artifacts, archival records and photographs, geological and natural history specimens, and ethnographic materials that reflect the history of the Yukon Territory.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The collection consists of photographs of animals, plants and Ice Age bones. The photographs were part of unidentified collections and were organized under the title "Flora and Fauna" for research and exhibit purposes. They are of various sizes and formats and most were taken by amateurs although several were prints produced by well known photographers. Subject matter includes animals in natural settings - black bears and grizzlies, moose, caribou, mountain goats, Dall sheep, and a bison. There are numerous photographs of young animals, including bears, moose and rabbits, in captivity. The collection includes images of trophy game, water foul and game birds, sled dogs and huskies and a few images of flowers and gardens, and mammoth bones.
