Learn the TRUTH about the Alaska Commercial Company in the Aleutians!

There will be a presentation on November 21, 2015 from 1-3:30 pm at the UAA/APU Consortium Library (Room 307) in Anchorage by Pennelope Goforth. She will talk about the mysterious story of how the Alaska Commercial Company (ACC) ledgers written in the Aleutian Islands were discovered plus give a preview of the book she is writing: Voyages of the Lost Ledgers.

Also, she will have handouts of the names of the hunters of the Winter Hunting Party and villages they came from, the names of the Tegalda shoppers, and DVDs of the transcripts of the original six ACC ledgers.

This project has been made possible by the supporters of the Voyages project: Alaska Commercial Company, the Alaska Humanities Forum, APICDA, and the Anderson Family. This event is being sponsored by the UAA Book Store.

The event is free and open to the public, and parking is free at UAA on Saturdays.
