Doug and Clara Rutherford moved to Whitehorse, Yukon in 1991. We came to the territory for a short term, contract job that Clara had at Yukon Archives. This was to be a 2½ year contract to train a First Nations archivist. The person hired for the job, however, decided that this was not the career for him and Clara was offered the position permanently when he resigned. She worked at the archives from November 1991 until she retired in January 2011.
Doug came a little later as he was doing archaeological fieldwork until early December and arrived in Whitehorse in the middle of December 1991. Shortly after arriving, he went to work as an instructor at Yukon College in January 1992. Originally teaching archaeology, he was also kept busy teaching computer courses and began to teach these exclusively since September 1997. Presently, he teaches computer networking and network security for the Information and Communications Technology program, a collaborative program offered jointly through Yukon College, Northwest Community College, Northern Lights College and the College of New Caledonia.
