Ted (JE) Langton-Adams was born in the United States, probably as Ted Adams. He moved to Canada when he was 14 in order to enlist in the military and served in World War II as a Reconnaissance Rider. Sometime after the war, he worked at the ticket counter for Trans-Canada Airlines (now called Air Canada), and then later as the Western Canadian Sales Manager for Western Airlines. This allowed him to travel around the USA and the world. Langton-Adams died in 2002.
The collection includes slides of Alaska and California, most taken by JE Langton-Adams. A majority of the Alaska slides contain images of the Pribilof Islands: sea mammals, caribou, Reeve Aleutian Airways (RAA) airplanes, villages, landscapes, tour buses, and flowers. Other Alaska related slides include Anchorage and clouds. Subjects of the California slides include Lion Country Safari, SeaWorld, Movieland Wax Museum, and Adventureland. The collection also contains two audiocassettes, one of which is a recording of a boat tour in the Pribilof Islands, and the other, which is a recorded program or presentation, explains the history of the Pribilofs, sea mammals that live in the area, and Alaska Native hunting.
