Between 1914 and 1916, Professor E. W. D. Holway of the University of Minnesota, with Andrew J. Gilmour of New York, explored the southern Selkirks, the region about Mount Edith Cavell, the area north of Mount Whitehorn, and the Cariboo Mountains near Tête Jaune Cache. Theirs was the first mountaineering expedition into the Cariboos, but continuous bad weather prevented any serious climbing.
