Posted: Tuesday, September 09, 2008

The late Stan Price carries his movie camera near Pack Creek on Admiralty Island to film brown bears in 1981. Price moved to Pack Creek in 1945 and lived there for more than four decades. He became famous as The "Bear Man of Pack Creek," living among the brown bears that fed on salmon in the creek. The area where Price lived is now called the Stan Price State Wildlife Sanctuary. Price died in the early 1990s.
