Yukon has ac- quired a collection of historic papers and photographs that once belong- ed to the woman who became the belle of the Yukon Klon- dike Kate Rockwell. born in Kan in became an inter- national celebrity during the Klondike Gold Rush at the beginning of the century. She first went to the Yukon in two years after the in- itial stampede down the Yukon River to Dawson where she was a dancehall girl and actress. In 1933 she married Johnny Matson of Dawson one of the original stampeders who had fallen for her when she first appeared on the stage of the Palace Grand Theatre. Yukon archivist Brian Speirs said some of Kate's letters and papers relate to her original trek to Dawson City and the Klondike gold- fields but a great deal of the material tells of her life after the gold rush. It includes many references to Kate's romantic associa- tion with Alexander who was in the Yukon during the gold rush. It was with Kate's financial help that DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS HOSACK Certified Dwilil Miclunlc 8-304 5th St. S.

He died in his body found frozen on a trail seven miles from his cabin. Kate's third marriage was to W. L. Van Duran of Bend in 1948 and it was from Mr. Van Duran's son that the Yukon Archives acquired her per- sonal papers. She died in Sweet in 1958.
