Abstract: Alaska is the largest commonwealth under the stars and stripes. Its history is rich in romance. Its wealth is immense. But through all the years its vast area, capable of supporting millions of persons, has been but little populated. However, if accurate information on the opportunities of this wonderland was disseminated in the states, this condition might undergo a decided change, for the country's forest, its minerals, its fisheries, all invite new capital, new ideas. There are in addition thousands of miles of arable land, ready to be tilled, great grazing areas for reindeer and for cattle, and, except in the most remote parts, a pleasant and healthful climate. Then, because Alaska is a modern frontier, its isolation is insignificant, Russia explored and exploited Alaska in 1741, before England, Spain or France, had realized its possibilities. Russia, in fact, owned and regulated Alaskan affairs until it was purchased by the United States in 1867.
