    Biographical history

    Edward Carrothers travelled in Northern Alberta when he looked for ranching land along the Peace River. His diary stopped in 1914 because he left the country in the same year to join the army. He never came back to the Peace River and at the time of creation of the diary (1963) he lived at Nipawin in Saskatchewan.

    Custodial history

    The diary was left by an unknown donor at the Provincial Museum of Alberta in 2000.

    Scope and content

    This fonds consists of an diary describing roads and localities between Edmonton and the Peace River area from 1910 to 1914. The diary was written retrospectively in 1963. Edward Carrothers’ goal was to document the history of transportation and communications in Northern Alberta by describing his trips: the first one from Edmonton to Peace River in a wagon in July 1910; the second trip by boat in 1911 down the Athabasca River to Mirror Landing; another trip up the Lesser Slave River and Lesser Slave Lake to Grouard; and the last trips to Northern Alberta in 1913 and 1914 on a wagon.
