The authors wish to acknowledge the assistance of, and thank, the many current and former personnel of the National Park Service and Sitkans who took time to help with this project. In particular, we are deeply indebted to Joe Ashby, Bill Brown, Gary Candelaria, Nancy Yaw Davis, George Hall, Ellen Hope Hays, Ross Kavanagh, Marilyn Knapp, Bob Spude, and Ernie Suazo. We are also particularly grateful to Virginia Newton of the Alaska State Archives who found the 1890 report of the commissioners who first recommended reservation of a public park on Indian River.
