• Interviews were conducted with 13 residents of select communities along the highway including Fairbanks, Tok, Northway, Destruction Bay and Whitehorse.
  • The purpose of the project is to create an awareness of changes along the Alaska Highway since its inception in 1942, and allow students, researchers and other interested people access to oral history through video recordings.
  • Oral histories, archival materials and photos were integrated into this computer based, interactive project "Jukebox."
  • The time frame for this project was September 2008-May 2009. Materials will be added and updated as more interviews and archival materials become available.
  • In an effort to better connect communities with their past, the Alaska Highway Project Jukebox will be available to everyone via the Internet.
