Scientific Society of Manitoba met in the City Hall, Winnipeg, on the
evening of April 14th, 1898. A large audience had assembled to hear the
papers of the evening. Chief Factor William Clark, President of the
Society, occupied the Chair. The first paper of the evening was read by
Rev. Dr. Bryce, a life member of the Society, on the "Life and
Discoveries of the late Chief Factor Robert Campbell. A large map,
prepared by Bulman Bros., was used in following the interesting account
of the explorations of the distinguished discoverer on Liard River,
Dease Lake, the Upper Stikine, and the Upper Yukon rivers.
