Abstract
The survey of Alaska's health by the Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh, was requested by the Department of the Interior. It was conducted during 1953 and 1954 by a team of 18 specialists with a diversity of skills. Most of the team traveled extensively in the Territory, observing problems at first hand and interviewing many Alaskans in all walks of life.

Abstract
The Bristol Bay Area Health Corporation (BBAHC) was the first tribal organization in the United States to use a P.L. 93-638 contract to manage and operate an Indian Health Service Unit.

Abstract
At 5:36 PM, March 27, 1964, an earthquake of severe proportion struck south central Alaska, including the city of Anchorage. This quake, with its epicenter approximately 75 miles from Anchorage, was the largest ever recorded in North America. It struck at the most heavily populated area of the state, and dealt a harsh blow to the young state's economy. Providence Hospital, with 155 beds, is the largest civilian general hospital in Alaska. There are four other hospitals in Anchorage: Presbyterian, which was immediately evacuated after the quake because of its proximity to a fault; the US Air Force 5040th Hospital, evacuated immediately because of structural damage; the Alaska Psychiatric Institute, which continued to function in its usual role, and cared for patients from the institution at Valdez; and the Alaska Native Service Hospital, run by the US Public Health Service.
