Photograph of Pete ""The Trapper"" Provost, born in a log cabin on the Michigamme River on April 17, 1883. At the age of eleven he began his first career working as a river log driver. As logging began to decline he began a second career as a trapper. He often hung the carcasses of the animals he trapped on his automobile or truck and drove around town to display his expertise.
