In Alaska

• In 1909, the U.S. Wireless Station in Juneau began providing round-the-clock information on the positions of Alaska vessels.

• In 1912, the bill providing for a territorial government for the District of Alaska passed the U.S. Senate.

• In 1969, Atlantic Richfield, BP Oil Corp. and Humble Pipeline Co. announced plans to investigate constructing a 2,600-mile pipeline to carry Alaskan oil from Puget Sound to the eastern seaboard. An Anchorage man left $2,745 at the Anchorage International Airport. The entire amount was later found and returned.
