Newsletter, May 20, 2019

May 20 NewsThe Alaskan History Magazine News for May 20 is online and has been emailed to subscribers. If you haven’t seen our free newsletter yet the archived editions are here.

There are four weekly newsletters in the archive now, beginning with the April 29 edition, which shared photos of homestead cabins on Ship Creek near Anchorage and the Sourdough Roadhouse on the Richardson Trail (now the Richardson Highway). The May 6 edition included information about writing for Alaskan History Magazine, and a great old advertisement for Klondike footwear! Last week’s May 13 issue highlighted the May-June issue of the magazine and announced it was now available at Amazon, and shared a colorful postcard from the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition in Seattle. Every issue includes information about the magazine, links to our social media presence at Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and a bit about Alaskan history which did not appear in the magazine.

There are also expanded versions of articles and items which appeared in the magazine on the website, notably the aforementioned A-Y-P Expo, and a broader look at one of the pioneer photographers mentioned in the May-June issue, Clarence Leroy Andrews (see right sidebar for links).
