Biographical history

The Yukon Order Of Pioneers (YOOP) was officially formed on December 1, 1894 at the town of Forty Mile on the Yukon River. The group was formed to keep the tradition of equality and fraternity alive. Membership was restricted to men who came into the Yukon before 1888. Their motto was, "Do as you would be done by." Leroy "Jack" McQuesten was elected as the first president.
