We are pleased to present this exhibit through the photographs of Rudy Schubert. The construction of the Alaska Highway in 1942 affected the lives of nearly everyone in the area. As one of the official photographers for the American Army, Rudy Schubert captured the experiences of the American soldiers as well as the people living in the local communities. To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Alaska Highway, we invite you to travel through Schubert's photographs and see what the construction of the highway was like for the people on the ground.

Join filmmaker Viktoria Sahl for the local premiere of her film, The Swedish Trapper. This documentary focuses on the life of Gustaf Hedin, most notably his heroics in the Charlie Lake Disaster seventy-five years ago. During the construction of the Alaska Highway, seventeen men were crossing Charlie Lake when their boat was swamped. Hedin saw the disaster and set out to help.... but he was unable to save them all. Learn more about this man's remarkable life. There will be time after the film for a question and answer session with Viktoria. This event is by pre-registration only. You can pre-register by calling the museum at 250-787-0430. Each time slot can accommodate up to 70 people. This event is by donation.
