This project was completed in June 2009 by the staff of the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections at Elmer E. Rasmuson Library at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (Karen Brewster, Marla Statscewich, and Stacey Carkhuff of Project Jukebox; William Schneider, Curator of Oral History; Robyn Russell, collection manager of the Oral History Collection; Dirk Tordoff and Michael Knavel of the Alaska Film Archives; Caroline-Atuk Derrick and Anne Foster of the UAF Archives; Marge Thompson of the Rasmuson Library photo lab; and Bob Forshaw, Paul Adasiak and Ulyana Korotkova of Alaska's Digital Archives). This project was originally created using Testimony Software from Turtlelane Studios, in Sydney, Australia. In 2015, it was updated into Drupal 7 format by Karen Brewster of Project Jukebox. Thanks go to Bob Jansen of Turtlelane Studios, Sydney, Australia and Mark Morlino of Rasmuson Library's IT staff for their initial technical expertise.

Thanks also go to the individuals interviewed and their families for contributing photographs and assisting with transcript review.

This project is supported in whole or in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and
Technology Act, administered by the Alaska State Library.
