Name of creator
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.
Scope and content
The collection consists of audio tape cassettes recorded by various researchers recruited to conduct projects for the MacBride Museum in 1988 and 1993. Includes interviews of Whitehorse area residents by researchers Pam Braun and Lori Jackson relating to the identification of Museum artifacts and photographs of unknown origin, and interviews by Helene Dobrowolsky created in the course of the Whitehorse Copper Belt Research Project to interpret Yukon mining history. The collection is divided into the following: Artifacts Project (1988), Photograph Identification Project (1993), Whitehorse Copper Belt Research Project (1993), Geological Sample Identification Project (1993), and Mining Artifacts Project (1993).
