Abstract:

The Woodbury Abbey Photographs consist of 125 images, many of them taken while Woodbury Abbey worked on the Alaska Railroad Survey and construction crew based in Nenana, Alaska. They include scenes of camp life, a baseball game between Nenana and Fairbanks (July, 1916), a Nenana streetscape, and the Nenana riverfront. A few of the photos were taken while Abbey headed the crew that surveyed the boundaries of Mount McKinley National Park (1921-22) and during Warren G. Harding's stop at McKinley Park Station (1923). Other groups of photos show the landing of the dirigible Norge at Teller, Alaska, in 1927; an airplane from the Wilkins-Detroit Arctic Expeditions at Fairbanks, Alaska, in 1925 or 1926; and scenes of Nome, Teller, and the Kougarok region in 1935-1940, including streetscapes, a Fourth of July parade, and hydraulic mining. Also included in the collection are a few notes by Denise M. Abbey, daughter of Woodbury Abbey, concerning her father's career and the circumstances under which some of the photographs were taken.
