Coward, Samuel Herbert

Samuel Herbert Coward (1880-1972) managed the affairs of the Revillon Frères Trading Company Ltd. in Canada from 1904 to 1931. For his work, he travelled from one end of the Canadian North to the other, visiting fur-trading posts along the way. He spent time in several areas, notably, the Peace River (Alberta), Great Slave Lake (Northwest Territories), the Albany River (Ontario), Hudson Bay (Nunavut) and even on Baffin Island (Nunavut). Wherever he went, he carried his small portable camera in order to photograph the daily life of the peoples of the North and document the fur trade. Upon his return to his base camp, he developed and printed his own photographs.
