A magnificent group of photographs, compiled by William N. Beach, the author of 'In the Shadow of Mount McKinley

Two of the albums present here focus on Beach's time in the Canadian Rockies, and the third on his excursion through Alaska.  All three postdate the publication of 'In the Shadow of Mount McKinley', which established Beach as an important figure in the world of big game hunting. According to one of the contemporary newspaper clippings tipped into the album, Beach's hunting party "was after specimens of Alaskan wild life to be placed in the Smithsonian," with W.L. Brown, curator of the Institute, accompanying the party. Shortly after the trip, "With Moose and Caribou in Alaska," an article by Beach, was published in 'Exploration and Field-Work of the Smithsonian Institution in 1937', and featured photography from the the "Alaska" album present here.

These expertly captured images of the Denali wilderness and the Rockies offer a rare and extraordinary glimpse not only into big game hunting, but also into remote and pristine landscapes.
