    From question one: The famous George Attla ( The Huslia Hustler ) would certain count as indigenous personnel.

    Hudson Stuck would be more likely to be known in any interior village than in a big city.

    You overlooked Herbie Nayukpuk, the Shishmareff Cannonball. Always a crowd pleaser. Back then schools were closed on Friday so we kids could go watch the race.

    Old time Alaskans remember a couple of other unique things. Milk didn't come from a carton, it came from a box and you had to mix it with water. Carnation was the standard table fare but on special occasions we'd get Milkman. It was almost white. What a treat! And remember the old SeaLand strikes? Grocery stores shelves got empty but we all lived on canned food and had stores put up. But toilet paper? Mom never threw way an old Sears catalog because when the toilet paper was gone, those pages worked pretty well as a substitute.

    I was an adult before I knew what a fresh tomato looked like. That was rich people food back in the day. TV was two weeks delayed and ABC and NBC were blended into one station. Even sports games were delayed a week. We still watched.

    OK MR. Pid...
    What TV broadcast was usually up to date and was specially flown up from Seattle every afternoon by the airlines, so it could be broadcast in Alaska?
    Sometime they would miss a flight and you would have to watch this same broadcast two or three days in a row.
    ...

    ........And when we did get TV, ( when it was working) they showed Maverick every Friday night just before the TV went off the air.
    When I went off to college in Eastern Oregon, my girlfriend had a TV. I went nuts trying to find "Maverick" because I wanted to see the next episode.
    The lady across the hall had to explain that it had not been made for 15 years...


    Herbert Nayokpuk The Shishmaref Cannonbal,,,,,,1929 to late 2006
    He ran the first Iditarod in 1973 and then ran the race 10 more times.
    During the 50s and 60 he ran in ALL the various sprint races and medium length races across the State.

    Remember making candy from cans of Carnation condensed milk? We would punch two holes in the top of the can and then let it sit next to a camp fire or the wood-stove fire and it would turn into something like caramel....

    I don't think we could see it in Homer...Least not at my house. I remember listening to it over the radio. Either KHART or KFQD from Anchorage. I had a long copper wire that ran 100 feet over to an old barn roof. That made a great antenna. At night I could pick up stations in Oregon and Texas.

    We lived just a few miles out of Kenai towards Soldotna. We had a tall aerial vhf antenna. I suspect that the feed was made possible by the White Alice tower not far away.
