About this collection

At the turn of the twentieth century, the United States Geological Survey employed numerous geologists to study the state of Alaska. Survey parties were sent into the bush for months at a time, engaging in topographic mapping and geologic exploration in Alaska. One such individual was Philip Sidney Smith. Due to his extensive research activities and scholarship, Smith has been hailed as the one of the most outstanding Alaskan specialists of the early twentieth century. Special Collections at the University of Calgary is pleased to present the Philip Sidney Smith Collection of Photographs, which preserves the spirit of adventure characteristic of Smith's expeditions. Philip Sidney Smith Collection of Photographs, Arctic Institute of North America Rare Book Collection was made possible through the collaborative efforts of Special Collections and Library and Cultural Resources at the University of Calgary, with generous funding provided by the Lois Hole Campus Alberta Digital Library. The repository contains digitized photographs that date from 1906 to 1923. A catalogue record has been created for each photograph, which contains keywords that can be used as suggested search terms. In addition, a number of supplementary resources are available for research purposes and general interest. For further information about the photographs, photographers, or geographic locations featured in the collection, please contact Special Collections at the University of Calgary.
