Canneries of Alaska (Blog Post)
Title: Canneries of Alaska
Author: National Park Service
Abstract: Canneries were built in response to the environment. This series is a summary of some of Alaska's canneries and the landscape features that defined where and how they developed. The overall period of significance for canneries in Alaska begins in 1878, when the first two canneries opened, and ends in 1936, when salmon production peaked. While some of these canneries no longer exist, the landscapes continue to tell of the history and importance of that period in the commercial fishing industry.

Between Two Bookshelves: Humanities Organizations and COVID 19 (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: Between Two Bookshelves: Humanities Organizations and COVID 19
Author: National Humanities Alliance
Abstract: Our short film on the Flu caught the attention of the National Humanities Alliance, who called the NN Cannery Project “important, necessary and timely.” In April, the organization reached out to Project Director Katie Ringsmuth, and invited the NN Cannery History Project, along with the Celmente Institution, to participate in a briefing with congressional staffers that took place on June 24, at a time when Congress was considering funds for a COVID-19 relief package. As the recipient of a National Endowment for the Humanities grant, Ringsmuth emphasized to staff the crucial and unique roles that humanities organizations—here in Alaska and across the country—serve local communities, and yet, are under immense financial pressures themselves to carry on those services. As NHA put it, “the NN Cannery History Project is emblematic of such efforts.” is a quarterly conference call hosted by NHA that offers our members a brief deep dive into Washington, D.C.-based humanities policy.

Cook Inlet Historical Society - The 1919 Spanish Flu In Southwest Alaska: Bristol Bay And Unalaska (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Cook Inlet Historical Society - The 1919 Spanish Flu In Southwest Alaska: Bristol Bay And Unalaska
Abstract: We’re proud to have a duo of historians discuss the flu pandemic of 1919. Tim Troll will first share a brief film, Bristol Bay Remembers: The Great Flu of 1919, and photographs from the U.S. Revenue Cutter Unalga that responded first in Unalaska and later in Bristol Bay. From there, Katie Ringsmuth will discuss how Bristol Bay was the last manifestation of the Spanish influenza outbreak in Alaska. Her presentation will share the story of how salmon canneries on the Naknek River responded to the pandemic while local communities, hit hard by the disease, survived to give birth to Bristol Bay’s future generations. She will also share a sneak peek of the Mug Up exhibition, slated to open at the Alaska State Museum in 2002. This is the first talk in the Cook Inlet Historical Society’s 2020-2021 Speaker Series, “Disasters.” All presentations will be free and open to the public; advance registration is required to receive the link via Zoom. In addition to teaching US and Alaska History at the University of Alaska Anchorage, Dr. Katie Ringsmuth is the founder of Tundra Vision and the director of the NN Cannery History Project, which, in collaboration with the Alaska State Museum, is developing the exhibition Mug Up: The Language of Work, the first museum exhibition to tell the story of Alaska’s salmon canneries through the perspective of the diverse cannery community. Tim Troll came to Alaska as a VISTA volunteer lawyer in 1978. He is currently executive director of the Bristol Bay Heritage Land Trust, an organization he helped found in 2000. The Trust has conserved 36,000 acres of salmon habitat in Bristol Bay. The Trust is also a sponsor of the NN Cannery History Project.
