Archival description area
The fonds was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections in 2003 by museum personnel at the Elk Island National Park near Edmonton, Alberta who wanted to find an alternate location for the photographs, which originally hung in the museum.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of photographs, many of which are framed, relating to Ukrainian settlers in the Elk Island, Alberta region.
Located less than an hour away from Edmonton, Alberta, Elk Island National Park of Canada protects the wilderness of the aspen parkland, one of the most endangered habitats in Canada. This beautiful oasis is home to herds of free roaming plains bison, wood bison, moose, deer, and elk. Also boasting over 250 species of birds, the park is a bird watcher's paradise.
