The Mile-Hi Lodge in Banff was owned and operated by John D. "Jack" Anderson (1917-1964). Anderson purchased the property located at 402 Banff Ave. in 1956 and operated the Mile-Hi Lodge until his death in 1964. The lodge remained in business under Anderson's estate until at least 1969, but was likely closed prior to the property's sale in 1973.

History / Biographical
The Wardle family was comprised of husband and wife, James Morey Wardle (June 26,1888 - May 18,1971) and Maud Leette (Roney) Wardle (May 24,1889 - December 1,1969), and their one child, Dorothy Hope Wardle (May 23,1919 - July 20,2003). James Wardle, born in Chiliwack, British Columbia, was a civil engineer and public servant. He was the Superintendent of Banff National Park from 1918-1921, Chief Engineer for Parks Canada from 1921-1935, and Deputy Minister of the Interior from 1935-1936. He is primarily known as a highway design engineer, particularly for building the Banff-Windermere, Banff-Lake Louise, and Banff-Jasper highways. He was a councillor for the Municipality of Rockcliffe Park in Ontario and he was the President of the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies in Banff from 1925-1929. Mount Wardle in Vermillion was named after him in 1921. James married Leette on November 4, 1913, with whom he had one child, Dorothy. Born in Calgary, Alberta, Dorothy (also known as Dot and Dorie) grew up in Banff, Alberta and Ottawa, Ontario, due to her father's position with the federal government. She was educated at the Mountain School in Banff and at the Elmwood School in Ottawa. All three family members were graduates of Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. James graduated in 1912 with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering, Leette graduated with a Bachelor's degree, and in 1942, Dorothy also earned a Bachelor's degree. Dorothy was prominent in student life and active in athletics. In 1941, Dorothy became the first woman elected as President of the Alma Mater Society and during her academic career, Dorothy was a member of the Levana Intercollegiate Debative, University Centenary Committee, and Queen’s War Aid Commission. Dorothy spent her career as a freelance writer however, upon graduation she served as the first Secretary-In-Charge of Records at Carleton College (now Carleton University) from 1942-1944 in Ottawa and in the mid-1950s worked as a secretary for the Glenbow Foundation in Calgary. Dorothy pursued a lifelong interest in traveling, art, and antiques. Although she was fiercely proud and protective of Banff and the Park, and remained a volunteer and patron of the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, Dorothy eventually settled in Sidney, British Columbia and shared an apartment with Sheila Iris Ritchie, with whom Dorothy travelled extensively. After her death in 2003, Dorothy, "Dorie," was laid to rest alongside her parents in the Old Banff Cemetery.

History / Biographical
Jean Alexandra Hembroff was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on April 5, 1908 to Walter B. Hembroff (d. 1945) and Sarah Jane Hembroff (d.1952). Jean was accepted to the MacPhail School of Music and Dramatic Art at the University of Minnesota, from which she graduated in 1927. She returned to Winnipeg to begin teaching courses in speech arts and drama. To establish herself, she first volunteered as the "story lady" at the Williams Avenue Public Library and quickly became known as an excellent speaker sought by many different organizations. She taught at St. Mary's Academy and the Evening Institute at the University of Manitoba, as well as offered private sessions. Many of her students used the skills they learned from Jean as they entered radio, television, politics, and business. Jean was also very active in organizing and adjucating Speech Arts festivals in Manitoba, often going to inaccessible places to give workshops. Her teaching, broadcasting, adjucating, coaching, and speaking career spanned more than 50 years. Jean was hired by the Canadian Pacific Railway's promotions manager to give presentations and broadcast interviews across Canada and the United States. In 1937, Jean joined the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies and participated in their summer trail ride in the same year. For that year's issue of the Trail Rider's Bulletin Jean wrote an article - and became the first woman to ever do so. In 1938, during her lecture titled "Trail Riding in the Rockies" on January 18, 1938 at the Royal Alexandra Hotel, Jean met John David (Jack) MacDonald. Jack and Jean were married on June 18, 1938, and the couple had one son, Bruce Walter James MacDonald (August 28, 1946-August 25, 2016). Jean participated in several trail rides with the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies and the Sky Line Trail, and produced articles reflecting her experiences. Jean loved to travel and visited places all around Canada and the United States, Borneo, Tangier, Montevideo, Stockholm, New Delhi, and Tonga. At the age of 102, Jean passed away on February 2, 2011 and is buried in Winnipeg.

History / Biographical
Additive Colour Screen Plates, first theorized by James Clerk Maxwell in 1861, were the first forms of colour photography. Maxwell’s original process involved printing the same black and white image through different coloured screens onto transparencies and then projecting them overlapped in order to create a single full-colour image. In 1868 Louis Ducos du Hauron expanded on this method by placing a screen made up of microscopic coloured stripes in front of a light-sensitive emulsion before exposing it to light. During exposure, the colours in the screen attached to the developing picture so when viewed back through the screen in a projector the image appeared fully in colour. Neither of these methods were commercially popular during the 19th century since black and white processes were cheaper and more widely available. In 1907 the Lumiere brothers introduced the Autochrome process to wide commercial success. The Autochrome process involved a mix of tiny potato starch grains dyed green, orange-red, and blue-purple that were mixed thoroughly and applied to a glass slide coated in a sticky varnish that held the grains in an evenly-distributed layer. The grains were laminated into the varnish to make them smaller and more transparent, and then the whole thing was sealed with another layer of waterproof varnish. The entire process could be done by machines, which made the slides cheap to produce, easily available to the public and opened up the process to amateur photographers. Photographs developed on Autochrome plates created soft images with relatively natural colour rendering, making them popular with artists and photojournalists. Autochrome plates (which came to refer to all colour screen plates regardless of manufacturer) created one-of-a-kind positive images and required long exposure times. Once an image was complete, it had to be quickly covered with either a strong coating of varnish or another slide of glass and then sealed along the edges with binding tape. Because silver is an element of the sticky base varnish that holds the dyed grains, if moisture was allowed to access the image the layers of varnish could ripple or tear away from the glass, or the dye could bleed or fade. The silver base is highly sensative to oxygen and if improperly sealed images could begin to "mirror," a process in which the exposed parts of the slide become uniform and shiny, obscuring the image. Because of the random distribution of dyed colour grains throughout the image and the lines created by laminating those grains into the base varnish, Autochrome transparencies are often mistaken for hand-painted coloured slides. Autochrome can be identified by looking closely for small dots of colour in all parts of the image, rather than the solid blots of colour found on hand-painted slides.

File consists of 8 colour lantern slides, some captioned. File subjects include an unidentified mountain scene, Mount Assiniboine, horse in unientified mountain scene, man posed in campsite in unidentified location, Lake Louise and Victoria Glacier, Hector Lake and Bow Peak, unidentified man in camp.
