Charles Eymundson fonds
Charles Matusalem Eymundson was born Matusalem Sigurdsson on June 15, 1872 in Sauðanes, Iceland. He eventually settled a homestead in northern Alberta where he became a skilled hunter and trapper and often worked in competition with the Hudson Bay Company. Because of his skills and knowledge of the area, he also worked as a guide for visitors and explorers, including oil field expeditions such as those conducted in the 1920s by Dr. Karl A. Clark, inventor of the hot water oil separation process.

This fonds contains nearly 1,000 images with particular focus on northern Albertan locations such as Waterways and Fort McMurray, aviation, hunting/trapping, and transportation. For more information about the Charles Eymundson fonds, please visit
