Notice biographique

The Jasper Historical Society was formed in 1963 by a group of interested members that included Fred Brewster, Constance Peterson as the first historian and Mel Taylor as the first president. The Society was later named the Jasper Yellowhead Historical Society (JYHS). The Society was incorporated in 1977. Monthly meetings included guest speakers, films, field trips relating to local and national history. The objectives of the Society are to encourage the study of the history of Alberta in general and Jasper in particular; and to locate, preserve and mark the local points of historical interest. The first archives and Society office was established in the Municipal Library in 1974. Planning for a permanent Museum and Archives began in 1978; in 1985 a partially completed building on Pyramid Lake Road was purchased and renovated. The Archives moved into the lower floor in 1990; the Museum opened on the upper floor in 1992. The Jasper Yellowhead Museum and Archives reports to the Board of Directors of the Society.

Note générale

In 1925 a team of climbers from the Japanese Alpine Club made the first ascent of Mt. Alberta. The group included; Yuko Maki, S. Hashimoto, N. Okabe, Y. Mita, T. Hayakawa and M. Hatano. They left behind an ice axe along with a record of the climb. In 1948 a group of Americans on the second ascent of Mt. Alberta retrieved the upper section of the axe and donated it to the American Alpine Club Museum. In 1995 it was passed on to the Jasper Yellowhead Museum and Archives. The bottom half was retrieved by another party of Japanese climbers in 1965. In August 2000 a ceremony was held to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the first ascent. At this time the two pieces were brought together. They are now both in the possession of the Jasper Yellowhead Museum and Archives.<br><br>Record No. ID98<br><br>
