Carl Mulvihill

Carl Mulvihill

Carl E. Mulvihill was born in Skagway, Alaska in 1936 and began working for the Whitepass and Yukon Railroad when he was sixteen. Both his father and grandfather worked for the railroad. Carl held a variety of positions from section crew member to brakeman to dispatcher to chief clerk. His interest in the railway’s history developed when he was in college and continued until his death, having amassed a large collection of railroad related photographs and artifacts, and written the White Pass & Yukon Route Handbook, a mile-by-mile guide of the historic narrow gauge with photos, and Century of White Pass and Yukon Route Equipment, a catalog of information on just about every car that had ever been on the railroad. Carl Mulvihill passed away in November 2021 at the age of 85. For more information about Carl Mulvihill, see his obituary in the Skagway News newspaper.
