Rowlandson Portrait

Byron Harmon

(b. 1876 Tacoma, Washington – d. 1942)

Byron Hill Harmon was a pioneering photographer of the Canadian Rockies.

In 1903, Harmon took up residence in Banff, Alberta and started a photography business there. He was a charter member of, and the official photographer to, the Alpine Club of Canada from its outset in 1906. Over the next 30 years Harmon became a leading citizen of Banff, founding the local Board of Trade, the Rotary Club, and serving in municipal government.

His collection of more than 6500 photographs provides an outstanding, thorough, and vivid representation of the Canadian Rockies in the early 20th century. The collection is now housed at the Whyte Museum in Banff.
