Ralph Elliott was born in 1914, in Juneau. He attended the U. of Washington. During WW II, he served in the Army and taught bombardiers how to use the Norden Bombsight, a secret bomb-sighting device on military aircraft. As a boy, he worked at the A-J Mill and at various canneries and cannery boats. He married Dorothy Hill in 1947, in Anchorage, and they had three children: Bruce (1949), Wendy (1951-1967), and Ralph (1953). Elliott and his family moved to Los Angeles in 1951, where he now resides in Richmond, California.
