Abstract
Long before social, cultural and environmental history was accepted by academic circles, Catharine Robb Whyte (1906-1979) of Concord, Massachusetts founded in 1958 the Wa-Che-Yo-Cha-Pa foundation, now known as the Whyte Museum. Pioneering the exploration of human history of the National Parks, Catharine – a trained artist – led the way for later historians who followed in her footsteps. Since its opening in 1968, the Whyte Museum gives visitors and researchers alike the possibility of immersing themselves into the cultural and natural history of Banff National Park. Although the Archives of the Whyte Museum are looked through by many historians, a detailed historical study of its founder has never been undertaken. Drawing mostly on Catharine’s personal writings and correspondence, we will study the contributions of this woman to the preservation of heritage in the Rocky Mountains.
