    This home movie from the A.M. Harper collection depicts hunting trips for big horn sheep and moose in either Alaska or Canada along with panoramic footage of the surrounding mountains.
    Born in Yorktown, Texas in 1901, Albert Morris "A.M." Harper was a longtime resident of Alice where he owned and operated a successful oil field trucking company. Financial success followed from the early boom in the Texas oil industry and enabled Harper to enjoy a recreational home in Port Aransas and many adventurous pursuits, including safari expeditions in Africa and Alaska.
