PETERSBURG, AK A new show of dozens of color photographs opens today at the Clausen Memorial Museum. It’s called “A Memory of Lester White” and highlights the work of the long-time Petersburg resident. White was born in 1942, raised in Petersburg and graduated from Petersburg High School. He served as a paratrooper in the Army and spent much of his life fishing in Southeast and Western Alaska. During that time he took hundreds of photographs of the fishing vessels, people and landscapes of his native state. He developed the photos into slides and stored them away, never showing any of his work. Joe Viechnicki spoke with his sister Hoopie Davidson about her brother’s life and photographs.
March 31 is the deadline to make a donation to a nonprofit through your Permanent Fund Dividend. Thank You for supporting Petersburg nonprofits!!
