Earthquakes and Oil Spills is the name of the program that historian Nancy Yaw Davis will present at Kettleson on March 23 at 5 pm.
Fifty years ago, on March 27th, 1964, the largest earthquake of the 20th century struck North America, heavily damaged south Central Alaska. Twenty five years ago, the Exxon Valdez struck Bligh Reef spilling oil into the pristine Prince William Sound. This is the story of two of the largest disasters of their kind in the 20th century. Davis will outline major events in 2 small villages on Kodiak before, during and after the 1964 earthquake/tsunami and summarize highlights of research after the Exxon Valdez event, drawing some comparisons.
Kettleson Memorial Library is a public library serving the City and Borough of Sitka since March 20, 1923. It is now tax supported, but owes a great debt of gratitude to the Sitka Library Association, whose volunteers provided library service in Sitka for nearly fifty years. Our building was built in 1967 with a gift from Theodore Kettleson, a long time Sitka resident. Additional funds came from the Library Services and Construction Act, and gifts from other generous Sitka citizens. An addition, which more than doubled the library's size, was completed in 1983. We are proud of our beautiful setting and excellent library service supported by Sitka's citizens.
