Rockwell Kent Wilderness Centennial Journal

One hundred years ago, artist Rockwell Kent and his son headed to Alaska. In August 1918, they arrived in Seward and on August 25 they found Fox Island. Seward historian, Doug Capra, has been shadowing Kent’s journey day by day on a blog titled: “Rockwell Kent Wilderness Centennial Journal.”

On August 25, 2018, Capra delivered a lecture on Fox Island as part of a dinner cruise sponsored by the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center, and in early November the museum is sponsoring a one-day Kent Symposium, with Capra appearing as one of three invited speakers.
