William A. Egan papers

Our indexer,  Ulyana has finished describing the William A. Egan papers which we have put online in Alaska’s Digital Archives.  Here’s what she has to say:

The William A. Egan Papers feature photos that belonged to William Allen “Bill” Egan, the first Alaska Governor who served from 1959 to 1966. He was reelected in 1970-1974. Egan’s widow, Neva Egan, gave his papers to the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections & Archives. In 1985, a special appropriation from the Alaska State Legislature funded the processing of this important political collection. The photos were arranged and identified by India Spartz. The images depict public events, politicians and public officers, and the city of Juneau.
