Traveling Exhibit: The View from the Future
The View from the Future: Fifty years after the Alaska Purchase Centennial
With the goal of making a permanent investment in Alaska, William A. Egan, the first governor of the State of Alaska, established an Alaska Centennial Commission in 1962. Local communities from around the state responded with imaginative and enterprising projects, including museums, community centers, performing arts facilities, libraries, campgrounds, historical parks, and a variety of restoration projects. What they all had in common was the commitment from local residents to pay their share, and the solid backing of the community. Almost every town in Alaska benefited in some way.
