Robert Campbell
Yukon Explorer

By William J. Betts
campbell book

Robert Campbell was born Feb. 21, 1808, in Glenlyon, Perthshire, Scotland; died in Manitoba, May 9, 1894. Entered the service of the Hudson's Bay Co. in 1830 and was sent to the Mackenzie River district. In 1842 he established the Frances Lake post, the first Hudson's Bay post in what is now the Yukon Territory. He built the Pelly Banks post in 1846 and Fort Selkirk in 1848. In 1851 he explored the Pelly River, which he had discovered and named in 1840, as far as Fort Yukon, at the junction of the Yukon and Porcupine rivers; thus he proved that the Pelly was the upper part of the Yukon River. He then proceeded to Fort Simpson by way of the Porcupine and Mackenzie rivers, returning to Fort Selkirk by the great chain of waterways in which he had discovered an important link. In 1852 he made a winter journey to Montreal, covering 3000 miles of the distance on snowshoes. He never returned to the Yukon. Appointed chief trader and placed in charge at Fort Chipewyan, 1856; chief factor, 1867. In 1859 he married Eleanora Stirling; they had two sons and one daughter. He was arbitrarily dismissed from the company's service in 1871. In 1880 he took up ranching in Manitoba. This volume is an account of his Yukon adventures.
