McFadden, McFadden & Malloy, Carpenter-Hixon

(1910's to 1950's)

Lumber Camps

Algoma District (East)

Gold Seal


This page is particularly devoted to McFadden, McFadden @ Malloy and Carpenter-Hixon lumber camps, which were operational in the Algoma District north of Blind River, Iron Bridge, Thessalon and Elliot Lake in the early to mid 1900's.  Two major water systems, the Mississagi and Little White River, were used in this era to move lumber from the bush camps to the mills in Blind River.  Although McFadden also operated in the Garden River, Webwood and Wakami areas, the main focus of this webpage is East Algoma.

My name is Dan Kachur, a Professor @ Sault College in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario, Canada.



"Over the years, my colleagues and I have spent a tremendous amount of time in the back-country of North-Eastern Ontario.  We have had the opportunity to explore many areas and accumulate a significant amount of knowledge in the history of mining, lumbering and fire towers in our region."  


"As an advocate for back-country exploring, I have had the opportunity to be an advisor to: Provincial and Federal government departments, Ontario and Michigan universities (faculty and researchers), film production companies, junior mining companies, prospectors, students working on thesis', heirs to estate stocks, non-profit organizations and outdoor enthusiasts looking to explore the region."
