The Alaska Historical Library will host Tim Troll, author of “Sailing for Salmon: The Early Years of Commercial Fishing in Alaska’s Bristol Bay, 1884-1951,” on Wednesday, May 4, for a lunchtime lecture. The book is a combination of photographs and text that describes a time when salmon fishing was done in sailboats called Bristol Bay double-enders. The use of motorized boats was allowed beginning in 1951.

Troll’s exhibit of photographs of the early days of commercial fishing in Bristol Bay – called “Sailing for Salmon — is currently on display at the Anchorage Museum.
