Clarence Leroy Andrews was an employee of the Interior Department Bureau of Education and Reindeer Service in Alaska in the 1920s. He focused on Eskimos and their use of reindeer herds, writing several books about Eskimo life in Alaska. He was especially concerned with corporations which exploited reindeer herds, and led a campaign in the 1930s to remove Carl Momen of Seattle from control of the reindeer industry. The C. L. Andrews papers consist largely of business and personal correspondence, published and unpublished manuscripts, and photographs. Important to the collection are the W. T. Lopp files that relate to education in Alaska and the reindeer service from 1908-1939.
William Burke (dates unknown) photographed the Southern Oregon communities of Coos, Curry and Douglas counties from the 1900s to the 1930s. In 1912 Burke and F.F. Sasman traveled on a Pathfinder to demonstrate the need for better roads on the coast. The collection consists of 380 images, prints and negatives, of community events, shipping, railroads, logging, mining and ship-building, and the Pathfinder expedition.
