New Online: Abraham and Lula Meinzer photograph collection

The Abraham and Lula Meinzer Photograph Collection consists of 46 photographs and real-photo postcards depicting cabins, people, hydraulic mining activities, animals, and dog teams, in the Seventymile River and Eagle region of Interior Alaska.

Abraham H. Meinzer (b. 1872) came to Alaska from Sandusky, Ohio, in the spring of 1898 to try his hand at mining. Through at least 1914 he lived in Eagle, Alaska, and mined in the Seventymile River region. Some time between 1910 and 1920 he married Lula J. Meyers (1876-1968) of Ohio, where the couple eventually settled.

The collection includes several postcards of photos by C. L. Andrews.
