The Dalton Highway: A Multi-Media History of Alaska's Arctic Road

Project Background

This multi-media website brings the history of the Dalton Highway to life with oral histories, photographs, documents, and personal biographies. Based at the Oral History Program, University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) Rasmuson Library, the Dalton Highway Project Jukebox is a collaboration between individuals, community groups, public agencies, and UAF staff, faculty, and students. The interviews are archived in sections on this website, and include a summary and index for each audio section. The interviews were conducted by Marie Mitchell, William Schneider and Jessica Brooks in the fall and winter of 2006/2007.

This Jukebox was designed and developed by Marie Mitchell of the Oral History Program's Project Jukebox office. The program was completed in the summer of 2007 by Karen Brewster and William Schneider of the Project Jukebox office, with technical assistance from Naomi Huesmann.

The original digital audio and video recordings are stored in the Oral History Archives of the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections of Elmer E. Rasmuson Library at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Uncompressed audio WAV file copies of the interviews are housed on one of the library's servers. Copies of these oral history interviews are made available to the public on CD or DVD. The media available on this website are compressed audio MP3, video QuickTime, JPEG image, and PDF document files.

The Dalton Highway Project Jukebox was funded by the National Park Service.
