Anchorage's history through images: AMA publishes a new book
January 29, 2002
The Anchorage Museum Association recently published a new book, Historic Anchorage: An Illustrated History. Historic Anchorage uses photographs to trace Anchorage's lively history from pioneer Gold Rush town to modern city, revealing the struggles and triumphs of the city's most prominent and successful entrepreneurs.
Pulitzer prize-winning author John Strohmeyer wrote the historical section of the book, working closely with Anchorage photographer Hal Gage to research rarely seen photographs from the Anchorage Museum's Archives and treasured collections.
Historic Anchorage: An Illustrated History is available for $29.95 in the Anchorage Museum Shop. Member discounts are available. For more information or to reserve a copy, call Georgia Blue at (907) 343-6195 or email Joan Bee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
