Canadian Mountain Historical Societies. Historical Societies have recently been formed in Banff and Jasper for the purpose of preserving documents and other items relating to these areas of the Canadian mountains. The society in Banff has quarters in the Public Library, where the Archives of the Canadian Rockies are maintained. Rooms have been named for Carl Rungius and Belmore Browne, in which their paintings have been placed. Much of the work is in charge of Mrs. Peter Whyte, Box 370, Banff, Alberta. The Jasper-Yellowhead Historical Society has similar aims, its secretary being Mrs. Toni Klettl, Box 535, Jasper, Alberta. Both organizations will welcome donations of appropriate material as well as financial contributions.
