1938 Cream of Wheat ad

Alaskan History Magazine is ad-free, dependent on subscriptions and single issue orders, and now the Alaskan History Magazine website is ad-free as well! I believe in free enterprise, and advertising where appropriate, but I want to present the history of our great state in the best light possible, and I think that means no ads for cars or computers or candy bars or anything else.

That policy may change sometime in the future if I can’t make ends meet as a subscription-based publication, but for now I’m happy to present only the history – and speaking of history, check out these wonderful old ads from yesteryear!

    Hi Helen, Just a quick question: Any particular limit on the number of photographs in an article? I’m in the early stages of thinking of something for *Alaskan History*.

    No limit on the number of photos, Gary. I’m aiming for articles between two and ten pages in length, and whatever fits within the layout will be welcomed. Thanks for your interest! ~Helen.
