Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Ted C. Hinckley was born in New York City in 1925 and received his public school education in Pasadena, CA. He fought with the United States Navy’s Torpedo Squadron 6 during World War II. Hinckley received his BA from Claremont McKenna College, graduating in its first four-year class in 1950. While there he married Scripps student Caryl Chesmore to whom he remained happily devoted for over fifty years. Hinckley later received a BS from Northwest Missouri State University and then an MA from the University of Missouri at Kansas City. Hinckley was awarded a PhD in History from Indiana University in 1961. Hinckley taught History at San Jose State University for thirty-one years. During and after his tenure at the university, Hinckley traveled the globe with teaching assignments in Europe, Latin America, Alaska, Micronesia, and as a Fulbright lecturer at the University of Gadja Mada in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Hinckley and his wife happily retired to Lake Whatcom near Bellingham, WA. During his retirement, he spent many years as a shipboard history teacher with United States Navy's PACE program. Among Hinckley's publications are diverse anthologies and three scholarly volumes on America's nineteenth century Alaskan frontier. He also wrote many scripts and screenplays, as well as a children’s book.

While some original manuscript material is represented in the collection, the bulk of the material is comprised of duplicate copies and transcriptions from primary sources. The series and sub-series arrangement reflects the original order of Hinckley’s files.

Hinckley's papers also contain research materials on Sheldon Jackson, a Presbyterian missionary to Alaska who was responsible in large part for developing the state's education system and advocating Natives rights and education. Hinckley contracted with Sheldon Jackson College in Sitka, Alaska, to write a biography of the man and history of the institution. The materials date from around 1867 to 1996 and consist of publications, biographical/historical materials, correspondence, and subject-based reference files. Hinckley also wrote and published a biography of John G. Brady, Territorial Governor of the state of Alaska from 1897 to 1906. Hinckley's papers contain research materials relating to Brady that span from 1867 to 1982. They consist of publications, biographical/historical materials, correspondence, and subject-based reference files.

Also contained within Hinckley's papers is a wealth of supplementary research information on various Alaskan themes that were relevant to his work. Dating from around 1867-1990, these materials consist of bibliographies and guides to sources about Alaska and subject-based reference files. There is also material relating to non-Alaskan themes that was relevant to Hinckley’s research. This information pertains to American Indians and missionaries in other areas of the world, as well as general United States history reference material.
