Biographical Note

Elsie Blue (née: Havens) was born April 27, 1905 in Illinois. She relocated to Palmer, Alaska in 1937 as a young Operating Room nurse for the Palmer Hospital. In 1938, she married Walter (Walt) Blue, who worked at the Colony Trading Post and was originally from Seward, Alaska. The couple lived in Palmer until 1940 when photos indicate they moved to the Native village of Kanatak on the Alaska Peninsula.

In her later years following her nursing career, Elsie retired to Anchorage, where she eventually served as President of the Women’s Igloo of the Pioneers of Alaska. She died May 13, 1999 in Anchorage at the age of 94.

Scope and Content of Collection

The Elsie Blue Photo Collection consists of 446 photos kept in one photo album. Ranging from 1936 to 1940, Elsie’s photo collection depicts her life in Palmer and her travels throughout the territory of Alaska, including Nome, Kodiak, Kanatak, Juneau, and more. As Elsie’s nickname was “Babe,” that reference is seen frequently throughout the album. Other individuals represented within this photo album include: Walt Blue, Ed Ueeck, Ilah Senska, Jack Allman, nurses and other staff members from the Palmer Hospital, and Native families and students. A diverse representation of life in Alaska in the 1930’s and 1940’s, Elsie’s photos depict animals, physical labor (including the construction of community buildings), Palmer Hospital buildings and events, agriculture, Native culture, landscapes, etc.

Within the photo album, the photos are arranged in vertical columns on each page. By lifting each photo, the others can be seen beneath. Some of the oversized photos have been encapsulated in mylar sleeves to prevent wear and tear. The majority of the photos are in very good condition with the exception of some that display minor wear and water damage. Some of the photos have come loose from their pages, and have been placed in mylar sleeves. Most of the photos have been digitized and are represented with high-resolution scans. The photo album has been left intact as a single artifact, and the photos inside maintain their original arrangement. The majority of the items in the album are photographs, but there are also some picture postcards.
