BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE George A. Parks was born in Denver, Colorado, on May 29, 1883 and graduated from the Colorado School of Mining in 1906. He arrived in Alaska in 1907 to work as a mineral examiner for the U.S. General Land Office. Following his World War I military service, Parks returned to Alaska as chief of the field division of the General Land Office.
In 1924 he became Assistant Superintendent of Surveys and Public Lands and in 1925 was appointed governor of Alaska by President Calvin Coolidge. When his term expired in 1933, he rejoined the U.S. Dept. of Interior as a district engineer for Alaska. During World War II, he worked on military projects in Alaska as a partner in the R.J. Sommers Construction Co. Gov. Parks died on May 11, 1984 just a few weeks short of his 101st birthday.
SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE
The collection includes about 300 photos taken in interior and northwestern Alaska in 1911-1914 by Governor Parks when he worked for the U.S. Land Office. These include views of villages, mining operations, and vessels on the Yukon. The first 92 views (album) in the collection record a trip taken during May and June of 1928 by Governor Parks, Malcolm Elliott, President of the Alaska Road Commission and R.J. Sommers, Territorial highway engineer. A portion of the trip was in a one-engine airplane, piloted by A. A. Bennett. The trip of 2,500 miles to northern and interior Alaska was the first extensive trip that an Alaskan governor had made by airplane. There are some official photos of cabinet members; also formal and informal views of the 1929 U.S. Navy Alaska Aerial Survey Expedition.
