The fonds consists of a 1976 university assignment on the Richmond Park District, photographs relating to the November 1994 launching of the history book "Reflections from across the River", and photographs of the February 1995 dog-sled postal run from Athabasca to Edmonton to commemorate Edmonton's bicentennial. There are also 9 photographs taken in 1992 of the Alberta Pacific Forest Industries mill site. There are photocopies of the Township Register for Twp 65 Range 21 and 22, and for Twps 66, 67 68 Range 22 stored in the oversize cabinet. There is a 7 page list of "Old Timers" with their date of arrival in Athabasca (possibly from the 1967 Canadian Centennial).
