Detailed Product Description
Canada, 1924, Volume 2 of 3 Volume set only. 171 pp, b/w photos and illustrations, index. Blue cloth hardcover in Near Fine condition. 

Volume II. 1917 to 1921 From Kicking Horse Pass to Yellowhead Pass (published 1924)

In 1913 Arthur Oliver Wheeler was British Columbia's commissioner for establishing the Interprovincial Boundary between British Columbia and Alberta. Those involved in the survey were responsible for the naming of more peaks than any other group. The survey was begun in 1913 and continued every summer until 1925. It was a major effort that involved detailed mapping in the areas adjacent to the border as well as the actual delineation of the boundary itself.

While doing the survey work for the Boundary Commission, which was done during and immediately after the First World War, he received permission from the Geographic Board of Canada to name the peaks in the Kananaskis area. Wheeler, moved by Canada’s loss of so many young men in battle, named most of the peaks after World War I generals and admirals, French villages, songs of the era and battleships.

Through his involvement with the Boundary Survey and the Alpine Club over four decades, Arthur Wheeler probably saw more of the Canadian Rockies than any other person and fittingly has a mountain in the Selkirk Range named after him. - from Peaks and People - Official blog of the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies.
