Name of creator
The Alpine Club of Canada is Canada's national mountaineering organization. Based in Canmore, Alberta, the ACC has been a focal point for Canadian mountaineers since 1906. The ACC offers 23 alpine huts, 19 regional club sections across Canada, year-round mountain adventures, support for access and environmental issues, affiliate membership in the Union Internationale des Associations d'Alpinisme (UIAA), an avenue into competition climbing and financial grants that support a variety of mountaineering-related projects and initiatives and much more. The ACC has grown significantly from its early inception into a Canada-wide mountaineering club with a strong foundation of volunteers as well as professional and corporate support. The Alpine Club of Canada has a long association in Jasper National Park. They have built and maintained the alpine huts. The Wates-Gibson in Tonquin Valley, Sydney Vallance in Fryatt Valley, Mt Alberta and Colin Centenial Huts. They have placed registers on the summit of significant peaks in the Jasper area. The Whyte Museum holds additonal Alpine Club of Canada records.
The register was brought down from Mt. Edith Cavell by Nancy Hanson on August 8, 1998. The cannister holding the register had holes in it, which is why the register is rather ragged. Hansen replaced the old cannister and placed a new register in it. The cannister and the registers are provided by the Alpine Club of Canada.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of one register from Mt. Edith Cavell (1984-1998) and a limited edition of twenty five hand bound book exclusively produced for the Alpine Club of Canada of the journals from the Ostheimer Expedition (1927).
