Description
 
This book is the result of over 37 years researching the women who owned the Alaska Garnet Mining and Manufacturing Corporation at Wrangell, Alaska in the early 1900s. They lived in the Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota area but seemed to virtually drop off the face of the earth. But I am happy to say that I have not only found the original women and their descendants but have found more women who were involved. In the process, this has become more than just the history of the Wrangell Garnet Ledge. It has become the story of Anna E. Durkee and her success as a well-known mining woman; although it could be said that her success was actually as a promoter of mining and/or fund-raiser. The Wrangell Garnet Ledge is better known as being owned by the Boy Scouts who held it in trust for the children of Wrangell. Several years ago the property was turned over to the First Presbyterian Church of Wrangell as required if the property stopped being used for scouting purposes.
