Introducing Who’s Who Wednesdays
Unidentified portraits from the Joseph Alexander collections (2013.10 and 2013.11)

Each Wednesday, a new, old, portrait will be posted to the FoJDCM Facebook Page with hopes of identifying the individual(s). These collections contain approximately 16,000 sets of negatives and prints, over 5,000 of which are of unidentified persons. The portraits date between the 1950s and the 1980s and all were taken at Joseph Alexander’s studio here in Juneau. With the help of the Juneau community, it is the goal of “Who’s Who Wednesday” to identify as many of the portraits as possible. As the collection is cataloged and scanned, additional portraits can be viewed through the City Museum’s online database. Names and information about any of the portrait subjects can be left in a Facebook comment or emailed directly to Curator of Collections, Jodi DeBruyne: Jodi.DeBruyne@juneau.org.
