GASTINEAU CHANNEL MEMORIES
This site presents the Web version of Gastineau Channel Memories 1880-1959. This book, published in 2001 and now out of print, was the first volume (Volume I) in a series on local history, prepared under the direction of the Pioneer Book Committee. Production of the book was supported by a large group of individuals and firms.
Volume II, still in print, was issued in 2004 and Volume III is in preparation, with a target publication date of 2008.
Volume I consists of 290 articles covering 350 families. Some are documentary in style; some are in the oral history tradition. But all of them provide an important viewpoint on our community’s history.
Putting the Gastineau Channel Memories 1880-1959 on the web is part of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum's long-term objective of making available digital documents and images on the history of the Juneau-Douglas area.
