Our indexer, Ulyana has finished describing the Leslie A. Marchand Photographs which we have put online in Alaska’s Digital Archives. Here’s what she has to say:
Leslie A. Marchand Photographs belonged to Alaska Agricultural College and School of Mines professor who worked there in 1923-27 and 1934-35. Winter issue of 1924 Farthest-North Collegian listed Leslie A. Marchand as Professor of French and Instructor in English who “graduated from the University of Washington with the degree of Bachelor of Arts, in 1922, and the following year received a Master’s Degree with a major in English and minor in French from the same university.” The forty-three images feature Alaska Agricultural College and School of Mines students and faculty, early Alaska pilots, Fairbanks city streets, and dog races. Fairbanks was becoming more modern – it had its own college, and the city conveniences included water delivery and air mail services.
