              Albert LeRoy Kvarnberg fonds
              PR4025 · Fonds · 1936-1943, 2006

              The fonds consists of a photo album created by Kvarnberg that documents his time working on the Canol Project. The photos depict transportation of supplies via portage, riverboat, and Caterpillar trains through the bush of northern Alberta and the North West Territories. There are also photos of camps and towns along the supply route, including Fort McMurray, Waterways, Norman Wells, Fitzgerald, Fort Smith and others. There are also images of pipeline and supply depots as well as U.S. soldiers and Indigenous people supporting the Canol Project.

              There is also one photograph of the 1935-1936 Luscar Hockey Club. Kvarnberg’s connection to this team is unclear, as he was not listed on the photograph as a team member.

              The textual records consist of a brief, hand-written explanation of the photos written by Kvarnberg and three articles about the history of the Canol Project from Arctic Journal, Alberta Oil magazine, and the Hougen family history website.
