Thomas Frederic Harper Reed 1878-1965

Last weekend we went to Atlin, it was beautiful. Stayed at the Brewer’s Bay Chalet which, although clean and plain has a million dollar view of the lake and snow covered mountains. After walking around town in the rain, we visited the Atlin Cemetery and photographed this curious monument to Harper Reed, gentleman adventurer. Have not been able to find out anything more, if anyone knows, please leave a comment.

  1. How odd. I was in that cemetery myself in July and I found the same marker and wondered about him myself. I bet there is a very interesting story behind it. If you ever get any more information, please let me know.

    1. Dear Madam, Sir,

      I visited Atlin in 1998. All I could find about
      T F H Reed is that he was a surveyor, Indian agent and telegraph operator in Telegraph Creek, Atlin and Victoria.

      Best regards
