    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: He worked the Alaska and Klondike towns in 1898 and moved to Atlin by Apr 1899 (BVIPA photo no. HP018639/A-06713). Hirschfeld's photo studio was destroyed in the Aug 1900 fire. He purchased the Atlin Claim in Dec 1900 and sold it the following year. Hirschfeld eventually settled in Vancouver, but appears not to have practiced professionally there. He married Marguerite Ethel Miller in Vancouver on 10 Jun 1902. Hirschfeld also became manager of the Atlin Lake Lumber Company that year (Yukon Archives photo no. 982).
