Crean the task of procuring all information possible on the land lying to the east of the Beaver River and Green Lake, south of Churchill River, and extending east to the old canoe route from Cumberland House via Frog Portage. The object of the study was to ascertain the value of the area for farming, lumbering, and mining purposes. The work, which resulted in a comprehensive report, was completed in 1908-1909. While undertaking the survey Mr. Crean took a number of photographs, which he developed in the field.
