Frank Crean fonds

  • BF 26
  • Fonds
  • 1908-1931

This fonds consists of records created, accumulated and used by Frank Crean, primarily in his capacity as the leader of the New Northwest Exploration Expedition or by one of his assistants during the Expedition, William Caldwell in 1908 and Alfred Beale in 1909. Under the direction of the Department of the Interior, the Expedition was intended to evaluate the agricultural, forestry, and mining potential of north-western Saskatchewan and north-eastern Alberta. Between 1908 and 1909, the expedition made at least two trips to these regions.

The types of records included are correspondence with the Department of the Interior, a scrapbook (composed of newspaper clippings on exploration of the Canadian northwest), albums (containing photographs, primarily taken by Crean and documenting the New Northwest Exploration Expedition, with a small number from an apparent third expedition to north-eastern Alberta in 1910), and a copy of Crean's 1931 report entitled, 'The Winnipeg and English Rivers Prior to Power Development.'

No series assignment has been applied to the records described in this fonds.
