Produced by prominent American geologist Alfred Hulse Brooks for the United States Geological Survey, this detailed map of Alaska is the culmination of years of research and numerous expeditions into the Alaskan wilderness. Brooks is credited with discovering and making the Brooks mountain range, the biggest in arctic Alaska, and noting that it is not part of the Rocky Mountain range as was previously believed. Brooks served as the chief geologist for Alaska from 1903 to 1924 and produced remarkable photographs of local communities during his exploration that are featured in Yale University's library.
The inset details the Aleutian Islands and represents some of the earliest mapping of the archipelago. Brooks' work for the United States Geological Survey was pioneering in the region. The US had purchased the territory from Russia in 1867 but would not gain statehood until 1959. The discovery of gold in 1899 sparked a gold rush, and towns such as Fairbanks and Ruby were established. Railroads began to be constructed during this time as well, allowing for Alaska's population to expand as eager prospectors made their way north from the United States. The Klondike Gold Rush remains one of the most iconic periods of American History.
The vastness of Alaska's wilderness is reproduced here with stunning detail and clarity. One of the most distinct states in the Union, Alaska, holds a unique character in American History and has become iconic for its arctic wilderness and geological features. This map is an authentic piece of American cartographical History.
