Name of creator
Art Zimmerlee married Lil Horsefall. They had three children: Meda, James (Jody) and Edith. The family lived at Russell Post on the MacMillan River in the winter, where Art trapped, traded furs and operated the Russell Post. In the summer they lived at Fort Selkirk where Art was a partner in the Schofield and Zimmerlee Store. The family moved to Vancouver in 1939. Meda (Zimmerlee) Alcock attended grade school at the old Lambert Street School in Whitehorse. She lived with the Erickson family at the Regina Hotel until the Zimmerlee family moved to BC. She was a member of the Vancovuer Yukoner's Association, and was known for making teddy bears out of old fur coats for door prizes at the Yukoner's Banquet. She passed away in October 2008.
