• Alaska Commercial Company Records, 1868-1911, Register

      Oswalt, Wendell H. (College, University of Alaska Library, 1967)
      A sizeable collection of certain Alaska Commercial Company records is now held by the University of Alaska Library. The collection was assembled by W. J. Erskine of Kodiak. In 1951, following Mr. Erskine’s death, Mr. Volney Richmond, J r ., offered the collection to the University of Alaska. The collection was received by the University through the assistance of Mr. Erskine’ s heirs, Wilson F. Erskine and Mrs. Carolyn Erskine Hall. The collection was shipped to the University in 1951 and reportedly consisted of nineteen large wooden crates and another small box. During the summer of 1962 the boxes with original labels 1-6 and 8-18 were located and opened for the first time. I compiled an inventory of the contents of each box, and in 1965 I checked my list against the originals and organized the diverse categories of information into a consistent format. Through the interest of H. Theodore Ryberg, Director of Libraries, University of Alaska, and a generous grant from the Northern Commercial Company, the inventory has been reproduced in its present form.
    • Alaskan Maps: A Cartobibliography of Alaska to 1900

      Falk, Marvin W. (Garland Publishing, Inc., 1983)
      Published maps of Alaska provide a rich but underutilized historical resource. There have been several major bibliographies done in the past. Two of these are still in use today: Wagner's Cartography o f the Northwest Coast of America published in 1937 and Phillips' Alaska and the Northwest Part of North America, 1588-1898, published in 1898. A third major resource is A.V. Efimov's Atlas o f Geographical Discoveries in Siberia and North-western America, XVII-XV111 Centuries, published in 1964. The Efimov Atlas is a masterfully annotated compilation of early maps, primarily from Soviet archives. It covers 194 key maps. The Wagner cartobibliography is concerned more with California and the Pacific Northwest than it is with Alaska. His coverage ends in 1800, well before the full development of official Russian cartography of Alaska. The oldest of the bibliographies still in use is that of Phillip Lee Phillips. It is essentially a list of materials available in the Library of Congress and does not take account of other repositories. It also does not reflect the m any additions of early maps made to the Library of Congress in more recent years. A number of perimeters were adopted in deciding on how to handle this mass of information. The cartobibliography only lists published maps. This includes manuscript maps that were subsequently published in facsimile. Unpublished maps require an entirely different research strategy and a separate system of annotations. In addition, a work that included unpublished maps would be a very large undertaking, requiring a number of years of additional work to bring to fruition. Another major decision was to provide a guide to the location of map images, not an exhaustive bibliographic description of each map. I believe that the rigorous examination of states of a copper engraving plate, say, would prove of great value for some sub-sets in this bibliography, but it would not be feasible for the entire work. In addition, some of this work has already been done for some of the older maps. Citations consist of the following elements: (1) an identifying number, consisting of the year of publication followed by a number within that year; (2) the map title and map maker, (3) the place and date of publication; (4) the size of the map; (5) where the map appeared, if it is part of a book or atlas; (6) a reference to one of the major authorities cited here; (7) a citation to where the map has been reproduced; and (8) comments on the map. Since the guiding principle is access to at least a copy of the map, the most commonly available reproductions are chosen for citation here. In many cases, one of the cited authorities, such as Wagner, will include additional locations. Many of these reproductions are almost as difficult to obtain today as the original map itself. Wagner's bibliography cites 862 maps. His primary interest was California. I have found that 211 of his citations are of Alaska interest. For the period covered by Wagner, I have found 350 maps that he does not list. For this same period, Phillips has only 127 maps dealing with Alaska and they are basically covered by Wagner. Phillips included maps of all of the Northwest Coast and its various parts. There are many maps (those, for example, that refer to Oregon) that are not of interest here. For 1810-1900, he lists 353 Alaskan maps. This bibliography cites an additional 596 maps for this period that are not to be found in Phillips. I have included a short selective bibliography on maps of Alaska. It does not attempt coverage of the extensive number of voyage reports or general literature of exploration. The best general coverage of this subject despite some omissions and occasional inaccuracies remains James Wickersham's A Bibliography of Alaska Literature, 1724-1924.

      Ulz, June; Munsell, Marsha (University of Alaska Fairbanks, 2010)
      Welcome! Herein you will find the recipes from the CAFE 2010 evening classes and a little bit more. Mexican soul food (Gloria Fernandez), Philippine cuisine (Betsy Engle), German pastries (Angela Dirks-Eicken), zucchini and chicken in all forms and variations (Marsha Munsell), a touch of the gourmet (Jeanne Yoder), and Alaskan berries front and center (Roxie Dinstel)—all brought to you through the extraordinary coordination of June Ulz. Late in 2009 June was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Like every other obstacle that life put in her path, she faced it straight on, moving forward and making the most of every day. She resolved early on that she was going to make it through the summer and she viewed the classes as a gift that gave her the reason she needed to keep going. With the help of her two daughters, Kim and Traci, June pulled it off one more time. Humbly we dedicate this cookbook to the multi-talented, ever smiling, courageous, outrageously funny and loving June who passed away on September 2, 2010. She lives on in her many kindnesses and in the minds and hearts of those who cherish her memory.

    • Dynamic Geology of the Northern Cordillera (Alaska and Western Canada) and Adjacent Marine Areas: Tectonics, Hazards, and Resources

      Bundtzen, Thomas K.; Nokleberg, Warren J.; Price, Raymond A.; Scholl, David W.; Stone, David B.; Nokleberg, Warren J. (2017-11)
      The main objective of E-Book is to clearly describe, explain, and illustrate the nature, origin, and geological evolution of the amazing mountain system that extends through the Northern Cordillera (Alaska and Western Canada) and the intriguing geology of adjacent marine areas. Other objectives are to describe geological hazards (i.e., volcanic, seismic and slope stability hazards) and geological resources (i.e., mineral and fossil fuel), and to describe the scientific, economic, and social significance of the earth for this region. A major aid to understanding the dynamic geology, hazards, and tectonics of the region is learning earth science terms. To enable learning, many terms in the E-Book are in an underlined blue font. These words have Hot Links to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, that provides excellent descriptions and definitions, and sometimes to other Web sites.

    • Handbook for the Alaskan Prospector

      Wolff, Ernest (Mineral Industry Research Laboratory, University of Alaska, Fairbanks, 1969)
      It is hoped that this book will be of value to many different classes of men engaged in the search for mineral deposits. These classes might include the experienced practical prospector who would like to learn something of geology; the young geologist who needs information on practical prospecting; the novice who needs a comprehensive reference; and the all around experienced exploration engineer or geologist who might need to refer to some specialized technique, look up a reference in the bibliography, or read a resume of the geology of a particular area, Because this book is aimed at so many different classes, different chapters are written assuming different levels of learning and experience. This, no doubt, will prove troublesome at times, but it is believed to be the best way to insure that the information contained in each chapter will reach with maximum effectiveness the group for whom it is intended.
