Fifty Years of Inuvik History

Inuvik: A History and Inuvik In Pictures were written by Dick Hill. Mr. Hill moved to Inuvik with his family in 1963 and spent 33 years there. He served as director of the Inuvik Research Laboratory and was the Town’s first Mayor. He was active in the Chamber of Commerce, the Territorial Experimental Ski Training program, the University of Canada North and the Western Arctic Tourism Association. On retiring, he donated his substantial collection of northern books to the Inuvik Centennial Library. Mr. Hill died in 2016.

The books are edited and designed by Bart Kreps. Mr. Kreps bicycled to Inuvik from Vancouver in 1988, and subsequently lived in Inuvik, Tuktoyaktuk and Aklavik for nine years.
