The Arctic Brotherhood Collection:
documents, records, and ledgers, circa 1908-1920.
The collection is mostly from 1908 to about 1920. There are many hundreds of names of early Alaskans in these documents. The documents and ledgers weigh 21.5 pounds. The stack of semi-annual reports from Arctic Brotherhood camps, from around the state, is about 3 ½ inches tall; I've shown the Iditarod camp as an example of one of these (each is 4-fold, front & back). The stack of loose ledger sheets (I've shown a group of 6 of them) is about 2 inches tall. There are checkbooks, envelopes, letters, correspondence, a very tall broadside (12th Anniversary Smoker, shown with the top half on the left, and the bottom half on the right, it is actually one piece), etc. The historical importance of this collection is in all of the names of the members of the Arctic Brotherhood, and in the financial records of the Arctic Brotherhood. In my 30 years of finding important early Alaska collections, this is one of the best, and maybe the most important, historically.
