History / Biographical
The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers was founded in Michigan on May 8, 1863 as a trade organization for railroad workers. The first Canadian chapter was established soon after in Toronto in 1865. Although little documentation of the Brotherhood exists in the fonds, the local branch (Division III) was likely established in the Bulkley Valley around the time of the completion of Grand Trunk Pacific railway in 1914. It was certainly in existence by 1926, when the Brotherhood’s chairman, along with the chairman of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, visited Smithers for a meeting of members of the two orders. Over the years, several local Division III members have attended provincial, national, or international Brotherhood conventions, such as Sam J. Mayer in 1927 (in Vancouver) and 1929 (in Winnipeg and Montreal) and Thomas Britton in 1966 (in Cleveland, Ohio). The Brotherhood has also been involved in local charitable endeavors, such as donating $1,200 to the Bulkley Valley District Hospital for a heart monitor in 1974.

History / Biographical
Duncan B Jennings was a prospector and contractor who primarily operated around Lake Kathlyn (then Chicken Lake). In 1910, he and his brother Dave signed a contract in Aldermere to do grade work and stayed in a tent in Bulkley. That winter, Duncan and Dave moved to Kathlyn Lake and Duncan worked whipsawing lumber for the construction of the Broughton and McNeil store. During the summer of 1912, the Broughton and McNeil store caught fire and the owners, uninterested in rebuilding, sold the property to the Jennings Brothers. Duncan and his brother purchased all salvaged goods and ran a general store and post office. In 1914, Duncan was made an official postmaster of Kathlyn Lake by the Post Office Department of Canada. However, their business suffered during World War I and the brothers were forced to close the post office and store. In the winter of 1915, they started cutting ice from Lake Kathlyn and began a contract with the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway to fill ice houses from Prince George to Prince Rupert. Throughout the 1910s, they also operated several mining claims in the Valley, though without any success. Duncan left to join the army in fall 1917 but little is known about his brief time with the military. From his return in 1918 until 1925, Duncan worked as prospector and tie-cutter for the railroad in various areas of Northern B.C. In spring 1919 his brother Dave married Florence Underhill. In May 1925 Duncan married Gertrude Varwise, settling in Giscome, B.C. They moved to Vancouver in 1937. Duncan Jennings died in 1945.
