About this image album
Sydney Montague was stationed in Port Burwell, Quebec, (Killinek Island) as an RCMP constable, June, 1926 -- January, 1929. He left the force after leaving the Eastern Arctic and spent the next thirty years on a Speaker's Circuit, talking about his experiences in the Arctic. He wrote two books, ("North to Adventure" and "I Lived with the Eskimos" (language of the 1940's). (Both books are available on Isuma at Text, under "Sydney Montague RCMP.") He died in 1972. His widow, Hazel, continued to live by herself in their Los Angeles home until 2005, when she was 100 years of age. She had 401 photos in an album about Monty's training in Regina (where they first met) and about his work in Northern Saskatchewan (briefly) and in Port Burwell. These pictures are the beginning of a continuing upload.
