Biographical history

Fur trader, [18þ]- . R. Douglas Ferrier was employed with Lamson and Hubbard Canadian Ltd. in Fort Vermilion, Alberta, from 1922 until the company's fur-trading rival, the Hudson's Bay Company, took it over in 1924. Mr. Ferrier then worked for the HBC for seventeen years in the Lake Athabasca, Fort McMurray and Fort Simpson regions of northern Alberta and the Northwest Territories before being transferred to Edmonton. This photographic collection depicts the riverways and transports used in the areas he visited, particularly those related to the fur trade.
