News about Canadian Rockies’ art, history and culture and the activities and history of the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies.​


In the fall of 1976, the Whyte Museum published the first print version (click to view) of The Cairn newsletter to share what was going on at the Museum with the community. In that issue, Catharine Robb Whyte wrote in her greeting, “Pete and I always felt it was a way of telling our friends what is going on here and encouraging us all to work together.”

In 2018, the 50th anniversary of the Whyte Museum, the print version of The Cairn ended and the monthly digital version began.
