Abstract:

Dellenbaugh's holograph journal of the Harriman Alaska Expedition, 23 May-9 August 1899, kept from his departure from New York City until his return. A detailed diary recording daily activities of the expedition, interviews with natives and recent settlers, scientific findings, and discussions with others on the expedition. There are small illustrations by Dellenbaugh throughout, and at the back there are signatures and addresses of expedition members and poems written on the trip. The journal is accompanied by clippings, programs, photographs, maps, and letters from E. H. Harriman, Robert Swain Gifford, and Lewis R. Morris.

The 115 lantern slides document the Harriman Alaska Expedition and were created by Dellenbaugh, C. Hart Merriam, and G. K. Gilbert. The slides depict a Tlinkit summer camp at Yakutat Bay, Haida tattoos, buildings at Sitka, Muir Glacier, Disenchantment Bay, Prince William Sound, St. Paul Island seal rookeries, whale rib houses, dog teams, a Kodiak village, a lifeboat drill on board the G.W. Elder, men gathering ice from the sea, Eskimos igloo building, and gold miners working. Accompanied by 4 glass plate negatives of Alaska scenery.
