Paper Presented for Alaska Historical Society Conference – October 8, 2021

Click link above to view a YouTube video of the paper I presented for the Alaska Historical Society’s 2021 Annual Conference. In this presentation, I speak about the lessons learned that may be applied by today’s city planners and historians as community’s engage in their own moves in the wake of or in anticipation of natural disaster and rising sea levels. My presentation begins at minute 26:00. Thank you AHS for the opportunity to share my research.

I am available to speak at book clubs, associations, bookstores, libraries and museums. I create customized presentations and discussions based on your audience and interests. Let’s talk! Contact me at
