SummaryAdd a Summary
Joseph Tyrrell (1858-1957) explored the vast areas of western and northern Canada, consolidating information gathered by earlier explorers, and filling in blank spots on the maps, especially in the Northwest Territories, while working for 17 years for the Geological Survey of Canada. He later became a mining consultant, and then a miner in the Klondike and northern Ontario, eventually acquiring considerable wealth. He was also involved in several historical publications, most notably in editing the diaries of Samuel Hearne and David Thompson. He received many honours including the Royal Society of Canada's Flavelle Gold Medal. [Canadian Encyclopedia]
