Richard A. Fox was a devoted member of the Yukon's Anglican Church. When he passed away he left this box and the items within it in the care of the Anglican Church until the second coming of Christ. His last will and testament states that the box, napkin rings, and a gavel should be given to the Lord on the day of his arrival. Since Fox's passing, the gavel has been given to Dawson City however the remaining item are being held at the Old Log Church in Whitehorse for safe keeping. Fox designed and assembled the box by hand including the time consuming inlay motifs. He also hand carved the other items out of ivory. It has been suggested that Richard A. Fox was suffering from cabin fever and the meticulously and tediously crafted items are proof of that fact.
