In Alaska

• In 1913, Juneau's City Hall at the corner of Fourth and Main streets was ready for occupancy.

• In 1967, Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall announced plans to open the continental shelf in the Gulf of Alaska to oil and gas exploration. He suggested the revenues could provide a solution to the Alaska Native land claim problem.

• In 1979, 4,000 pounds of mail for Anchorage and rural Alaska was lost as a mail container van washed overboard in the Gulf of Alaska.
