Alaska history by the exchange of ideas and information, the preservation and interpretation of resources,
and the education of Alaskans about their heritage. Governed by a 15-member board, the Society provides a
forum and a vehicle to achieve these goals. AHS is a membership organization with 430+ members. If you
