Abstract:

Photographs and papers created and collected by Alfred Hulse Brooks and then probably maintained by Philip Sidney Smith, 1892-1955. The collection provides visual documentation of the work of the United States Geological Survey in Alaska. Brooks and other employees of the agency made most of the photographs. Some images document joint surveys made with the Geological Survey of Canada. The photographs depict mining operations, water and rail transportation, frontier communities, and Native American villages. Locations in Alaska well represented in the collection include Fairbanks, Juneau, Kennecott, Ketchikan, Skagway, Valdez, and Wrangell, as well as sites along the rivers, including the Copper River, Susitna River, and Tanana River. Numerous images throughout the collection document sites in Canada, particularly in British Columbia. Photographs not created by the United States Geological Survey or its employees consist chiefly of images created by commercial photographers, corporate bodies, and government agencies in Alaska, collected principally by Brooks to supplement those created by him and his subordinates. Significant components include photographs related to the Cook Inlet Exploration Expedition under the command of Captain Edwin Forbes Glenn in south-central Alaska in 1898; trips made by Robert Steed Dunn in Alaska, 1900-1908; and the first successful ascent of the eastern peak of Mount Blackburn (later called Mount Kennedy) made by Dora Keen in May 1912.
