Donor material

The Packers on the Trail project owes part of its success to the generous donations. Both photographs and stories were donated to the Hudson’s Hope Museum to help bring life to the artifacts and textual material that made up the exhibit. The contribution of anecdotes from those involved or connected to the Bedaux expedition are key to really experiencing the cowboys journey through story. The photographs donated by Madeline Carlson and Norm Busche helped to show the social life as well as the outside view of the expedition and the members. This series is arranged into two sub-series: Interviews, and Photographs.


This sub-series consist of audio copies on CD of interviews done by Jay Sherwood to record the stories of the Bedaux cowboy’s relatives. They are stories from; Robin Philips daughter of Jack Bocock, Bev Field daughter of Bob McCorkell, Arlene Myers granddaughter of Bob Beattie, Jesse Miller daughter of Del Miller, Mary (Girlie) Powell daughter of Jim Beattie, Ross MacLean brother or Art MacLean, Robin Pickell daughter of Cecil Pickell, and Lyle Westgaard who played host to the Bedaux expedition members.
