Book Launch at the Museum

Join us for the inspiring story of Amy Wilson, a woman who dedicated herself to nursing remote Indigenous communities along the Alaska Highway from 1949-1951. She nursed at the Halfway during the diphtheria epidemic there 70 years ago (Dec. 15, 1949). Amy’s grand niece, Laurel Deedrick-Mayne, who has written an introduction to this new edition will share Amy’s story. Books are available to purchase in the museum gift shop. Free admission. Donations welcome. For more information, call 250-787-0430.
