Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Descriptive Booklet on the Alaska Historical Museum: Issued by the Alaska Historical Association The institution known as the Alaska Historical Library and Museum was created by an act of Congress June 6, 1900. Prior to this date only a small collection of articles of native origin and about 1200 volumes of books of historical nature were acquired and kept at the executive office. Under this act the money for acquiring new books for the library and a suitable collection of native work for the museum was derived from the fees paid in to the Secretary of the Territory for certificates issued to the members of the Alaska Bar and for commissions issued to notaries public. No provision was made for the proper housing and display of the specimens nor for the care of the books in the library. New specimens were acquired from time to time, carefully packed and stored until such time as a suitable building could be secured. In August 1910, seventy-one very rare baskets from the North Interior tribes of British Columbia were added to the collection, and in July, 1911, nine hundred sixty-four pieces of Eskimo antiquities were acquired. All were carefully packed and stored away. Rare Thlingit and Aleutian baskets together with the Eskimo work in the same line were added from time to time. In the spring of 1920, Dr. Daniel S. Neuman, late of the U. S. Bureau of Education at Nome, came to Juneau bringing his very rare collection of Eskimo antiquities. Dr. Neuman spent ten years in the far North, where he had an excellent opportunity for the study of the Eskimo life and their aboriginal work. His collection fully illustrates the life, customs, habits, art, social regulations, beliefs and ceremonies of these Northern people. He gathered his specimens with care and completeness, having in mind the historical and scientific data, which he procured with every piece. This collection is said to be one of the most complete of its kind in the United States. Governor Riggs, realizing the importance of having such a collection in the Territory, immediately put forth every effort to have this collection a part of the Territorial exhibit. A quarter of the collection was at once purchased from Dr. Neuman and the remaining portion was kindly loaned to the Territory. It was entirely due to the Governor s initiative and under his personal direction that the museum was opened and the rare specimens put on display for the benefit of the general public. In order to facilitate the interest in the public of the Territory and to continue in acquiring new specimens, an Historical Association was formed. Many prominent citizens and public spirited men and women all over Alaska pledged their support for this great work. The Association is doing satisfactory work in a quiet way and the results obtained in the short time the Association has been in existence, can be seen in the many new specimens and the valuable historical data procured. In the Session of 1921 the Alaska Legislature appropriated a sufficient sum of money to purchase the remaining portion of Dr. Neuman s collection. On September 9, 1920 the Alaska Historical Museum was opened to the public and since that date it has grown in importance and size. The management is living in hopes of securing a concrete building where these valuable specimens can be housed and kept in safety.
