HOWARD AND MABEL JONISH. Papers; n.d., 1910-1935, 1943-1989. 1.2 cu. ft.

Howard and Mabel Jonish first came to Alaska in the early 1940s. Howard Jonish was a construction engineer with the U.S. Army Engineer District, Alaska, from 1944 to 1965. He was project engineer at Nome (1944-1950), Cape Lisburne (1951-1953), Sparrevohn Air Force Base (1957-1958), Driftwood Bay DEW Line Extension (1958-1959); and resident engineer at Ladd-Eielson Air Force Base (1953-1957), Clear BMEWS (1959), Fort Greely (1960, 1962), and Fort Wainright (1963-1965). Howard and Mabel Jonish made several trips on the Alaska Highway, as well as the Richardson, Steese, and other highways in Alaska. The Jonishes left Alaska upon Howard Jonish's retirement in 1965 and moved to Washington. Howard Jonish died in 1983 and Mabel Jonish died in 1993.

The collection contains the papers, photographs, post cards, and color slides of Howard and Mabel Jonish and relating to their life in Alaska as well as the various construction projects on which Howard Jonish worked. The papers consist of biographical materials of Mabel Jonish; employment records and awards and certificates of Howard Jonish; and various publications, clipping and miscellany including a 1943 illustrated history of the construction of the Alaska Highway. The photographs and color slides (over 1,300 items) relate to various construction projects at Cape Lisburne, Eielson, Sparrevohn, Driftwood Bay, Clear, Northway, and Fort Wainwright; life in and around Nome, Kotzebue, Valdez, and Fairbanks; gold mining in the Kougarok River drainage; trips in Alaska and on the Alcan and Alaska highways; and the construction of the Alaska Highway. The post cards include several by Winter and Pond; scenes of the construction of the Alaska Highway; views of the damage from a storm in Nome (1946); and various sites in Alaska and along the Highway.

The collection was presented to the archives by Arley D. Jonish. A deed of gift was signed in 1995.
