Archiving AK Season 3 Episode 1 We are fine: letters from the 1964 earthquake

We’re rebooting our podcast, Archiving AK! With this one, we commemorate the 60th anniversary of the 1964 Good Friday earthquake in Alaska. In the podcast, Arlene, Becky, and Gwen all read some letters from our holdings from people in Anchorage who wrote family and friends about the events during and after the earthquake.

For additional information about the 1964 earthquake, you might want to look at the following resources:

The US Geological Survey’s history of the earthquake

A guide to our collections here at the Archives related to the earthquake, which includes links to the finding aids, and many many digitized photographs.

And a statewide guide to primary sources about the earthquake.
