This collection encompasses accessions of single letters and small groups of letters and other manuscripts pertaining to the history of Alaska, which the library has chosen to group and list as an artificial collection. Letters and documents discuss travel in Alaska, interactions with Native Alaskans, the Alaska gold rush, the fur industry, surveying, business operations, and naval service. Also includes one photograph of the U.S.S. Pinta.
The collection consists of the personal and official papers of John G. Brady documenting early missionary work in Alaska, the history and political and economic development of Alaska, and Brady's life and career. There are early 20th century publications by Alaskan government bodies and missionary groups, as well as the public records of the City of Sitka. Included are photographs, negatives, and glass lantern slides of Alaskan scenery and subjects, native Alaskans, and Brady's family.
Letters by or relating to Robert Sewall Browne and wife Alice Gray Browne, circa 1894-1908. Circa 170 letters document Robert Browne's efforts mining gold in Alaska and Yukon Territory--142 of these letters were exchanged between Robert Browne and Alice Gray Browne. 28 letters concern Robert Browne's death in Alaska. Included are 80 letters addressed to Alice Browne and son Carl Gray Browne.
Watercolor paintings and sketches by Louis Choris of the Aleutian Islands, Alaska, the Bering Sea and the Alaskan Natives living on those lands, as well as other Arctic peoples including Chukchi and Itelmens in Russia. Made on the Kotzebue Expedition, 1815-1818.
The papers contain correspondence, notes, writings, printed material, photographs and memorabilia concerning forestry and forest policy in Alaska, Arizona, Oregon, Texas, and Virginia and material on Guthrie's association with Civilian Conservation Corps, United States Forest Service, Society of American Foresters and the Yale Forest School.
The papers consist of correspondence, diaries, writings, clippings, photographs, and topical files documenting the career of Benjamin Frank Heintzleman, particularly his term as territorial governor of Alaska (1953-1957) and his work promoting industrial growth and economic development in Alaska.
The papers consist of correspondence between Thomas R. Hill, Jennie M. Hill, Angelo Heilprin, and others, Thomas Hill's journal and drawings of gold mining in Alaska, and papers of the Philadelphia Exploration and Mining Company, which organized to mine in Alaska.
