Rolf and Marg Hougen meet Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip during their visit to the Yukon. FH Collins looks on. Prince Phillip went to Dawson City alone as the Queen was not well. A reporter wrote a story that said:
"The Queen was served some bad moose meat last night and became ill."
In fact she was pregnant... morning sickness.
As part of the publicity to celebrate the opening of the new C.N. owned Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, they provided a suite, interview with the Montreal Star and Photos. Here is what, in part they printed:
"Mr. Rolf Hougen of Whitehorse, Yukon, Northern director of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, looks on while his charming wife telephones friends from their ninth floor suite during their stay inThe Queen Elizabeth."
