This Day in History

Posted: Friday, June 04, 2004

In Alaska

• In 1954, two pigeons were finally removed from the Juneau City Library after taking two fast turns around the fiction section, stopping briefly at the periodicals and perching on a high light fixture. It took two police officers, a librarian and a length of rope to evict the birds.

• In 1964, Fairbanks police seized $35,000 worth of marijuana and arrested two on charges of "possession of a narcotic."

• In 1970, Alaska Airlines bought the Alyeska Ski Corporation.

In the nation

• In 1812, the Louisiana Territory was renamed the Missouri Territory.
