Goose hunters Akulurak, Alaska
At this point a separate Photoarchives is more one of the archivist's dreams than a reality. JOPA's visual materials are rich and deep, yet sadly underdeveloped. They date roughly from the early 1880s onward, and so illustrate, in Mission contexts, some of the earliest available cross-cultural interactions in the Northwest and Alaska.
Work has begun. An arrangement and inventorying scheme has been created, and all negatives are now being removed from the manuscripts and placed in protective sleeves. Cataloging software is also planned for the current fiscal year.
