Dr. George Brown

Dr. George Brown was interviewed on September 30, 2004 at his home in Portland, Oregon. In this interview, George discusses and describes a selection of photographs from his personal collection as a way to talk about his experience as a Public Health Service doctor in Tanana, Alaska in the early 1970s. He talks about the role of the physician as the health aides' primary contact, the early communication system, doctor travel to the villages, and his assessment of the health aide program. His wife, Marcia, periodically interjects her own memories to add to his stories. See George Brown's Slideshow to see the photos and listen to George and Marcia Brown talk about them.
