Wrangell - Saint Elias Project Jukebox

This project contains oral history interviews and photographs from Native and non-Native people who live near or have been associated with Wrangell-St. Elias National Park in south-central Alaska. In the early 1990s, the National Park Service funded the University of Alaska Fairbanks Oral History Program to conduct interviews with residents of Chitina, Copper Center, Gakona, Glennallen, Kennecott, Kenny Lake, Nabesna,Valdez, Yakutat, and with National Park Service employees about their lives and experiences related to the Park, its establishment, and subsistence living in the area. The material was put into a Macintosh only Hypercard computer program and was accessible at the University and the Park's Copper Center Visitor Center. Additional interviews were conducted from 1998 to 2002 in Chisana, Chistochina, Chitina, Copper Center, Gulkana, Tazlina, and Yakutat.

In the late 1990s, UAF Oral History Program staff began to convert the program to a web-based format. The addition of the last interviews and the final Internet program (2005) were completed by Marla Statscewich and Karen Brewster of the UAF Oral History Program.

Interviewers for this project were William Schneider, David Krupa, Karen Brewster, and Mary Larson from UAF, and Ruth Ann Warden, Nellie Lord, Ann Kain, Ann Worthington, and Sande Faulkner from the Park Service.
