Biographical history

Born in 1948, Yvon Morneau lived in Kabina, a small community located about 32 kilometers west of Hearst, from 1952 to 1961. His father, Roger Morneau, worked at J.D. Levesque sawmill. As a child, he attended school in Kabina and witnessed the evolution of the logging village. When the sawmill closed, the family left the village and settled in Hearst.

In 2017, Yvon Morneau donated his collection of digital photos to Le Centre d’archives de la Grande Zone argileuse.
