Museum Memories

In the ’20s, virtually every island in Prince William Sound that was suitable for raising foxes was under permit with the Forest Service. In 1922, the Forest Service organized and sponsored the very first Fox Farmer’s Convention which led to the development of the Fox Farmer’s Association. During that year alone, 581 skins were harvested with an estimated value of $70,000.
