Here is the full text of a roll of microfilm loaned to us by
Bob Brodie of Kodiak. Every frame of the microfilm has been manually
typed into the computer by hand. The page layouts are as close
to the original as possible considering that these are plain ASCII
text files and little formatting is possible in this mode.
To make a clean printout of this text, copy it into your favorite word
processor as plain ASCII. The file contains the standard ASCII form-feed
character (control L) (0C hex) between pages. Netscape nor Internet Explorer
will recognize page breaks and therefore will not produce a proper printout.
Pages are mostly in the order presented on the film.
Microfilm job No. AR-192-77, H-108, operator C. Miller, date 5-2-77.
There are references to photographs which I haven't been able to find yet.
Construction of naval facilities in the Kodiak sector as
documented in 1947
List of structures 1965 with maps.
Other historical text includes
this December 22, 1941 memo from S. J. Rever
concerning camouflage of water tanks and bomb shelter options.
This memo discusses a $196,000 shelter as being too expensive
and suggests blasting hard rock tunnels. Since we have pictures
of the SHELTER, even though we can't find it,
we don't think any of the tunnels were constructed.
(Note: If largest photo version doesn't load, it may be only available
on our CD-ROM of the website.)
