History / Biographical
Willard Dudley Tompson was born November 26, 1926 in Mexico, Missouri. He served with the U.S. Army, stationed in Berlin from 1945 to 1946. Tompson moved his family to Vancouver in 1962 to pursue a career as a geologist in mineral exploration. In 1974, he relocated to Smithers, BC. By 1999, Tompson was Vice President of Telkwa Gold Corporation and retired to Vernon, BC in 2001. Tompson passed away on January 30, 2015.
Custodial History
The papers of Ronald C. Campbell-Johnston, and his daughter Maisie Armytage Moore, were collected by Tompson during his contract with Lost Resources Mining Syndicate to investigate the mining claims of Campbell-Johnston.
Tompson bought the papers of Francis Bell Chettleburgh at an estate sale. Since, these records are not related to Tompson or his work, they have been separated and arranged under their own fonds (see: PF10).
Scope and Content
Fonds primarily reflects the business activities of Tompson while working as a geologist for Lost Resources Mining Syndicate, relating to the review of Ronald C. Campbell-Johnston’s mining claims.
Fonds is arranged into two sous-fonds:
1. Ronald C. Campbell-Johnston
2. Amy Campbell-Johnston Hurley
Records include reports, correspondence, maps, pamphlets and photographs.
