Alaska and Western Canada Collection

The University of Washington Libraries Digital Collections continues to break new and interesting ground with one of their latest offerings, which happens to focus in on Alaska and the Canadian provinces of Yukon Territory and British Columbia. With extensive archival holdings in both areas, they are certainly well poised to do so, and this particular collection includes visual materials related to the famed Gold Rush of 1898 to 1900, mining activities, and World War II installations. As with previous collections from this series, visitors can type keywords into the search engine, or they can search by category. The Gold Rush section is a real gem, as it includes 225 images in total. They include an illustration of a miner's working outfit from 1897, a photograph of a mining town dance from 1900, and a harrowing photograph of a boat navigating the treacherous Miles Canyon along the Yukon River.
