About Us

Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies in Banff, Alberta

Founded in 1968, the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies has evolved to be a place for mountain culture. We, the Archives and Special Collections, are a vital part of representing the history of this special place. Our aim is to make accessible our unique collections to researchers, locals, and visitors alike.

This website is intended for people like you.

As we increase digital accessibility to our collections, we are also turning to the public for help. By volunteering to be a digital transcriber you can help us achieve our goals of providing greater accessibility and community engagement.

"It’s a shame that we have digitized all of this material and no one is seeing it. FromThePage will help us change that."
- Elizabeth Kundert-Cameron, Head of Archives and Special Collections

Since 1999, we have been actively digitizing our collections, however, we are now able to begin this road of transcribing these materials. Be sure to explore our online collections.

This project has been made possible through the Library and Archives Canada's Documentary Heritage Communities Program. We thank them for their generosity.
