  • Transferred to film 1982 (originally created 1902, 1939-1962, 1991)

The fonds consists of copies of 8 home movies (82/540) taken by "Cam" Cameron of his family's life at Fort Selkirk, and in the Yukon. The films date from 1939 to 1962 and show Corporal Cameron on patrol, the residents of Fort Selkirk, community events and development, and Cameron's work as an official for the Game department. There is a voice over by Cameron on the 8 films, recorded in March 1991 (92/66). The photograph (80/56), taken by Larss & Duclos, depicts a team of horses pulling a load of freight. The fonds also includes a file of records created in the effort to form a territorial employees' association, including correspondence and a petition requesting greater employee benefits and the minutes of the 1953 organizational meeting to form a Yukon Territorial Government Employees' Association (84/38).
