            The Kodiak Historical Society held its annual membership meeting Wednesday night. During the financial report it was pointed out that the society did not escape the financial ravages of the volatile investment market of the past year, but as Executive Director Katie Oliver said later, the endowment fund is bouncing back.

            Also at the meeting, Pat Holmes, Nancy Kemp and Jane Van Atta were all re-elected to the historical society's board of directors.

 

 

 

--          (Historical 1                39 sec              "2008, in particular ... ground, of what we lost.")

 

            She said as a result of the market troubles, the society's portfolio is now even more conservatively managed than before. The endowment fund now stands at 1-point-1-million dollars.

            Oliver also reported that at nearly 7,000, visitation to the Baranov Museum was up, despite the building being closed for renovations for more than two months early this year.

 

--          (Historical 2                51 sec              "We collected more than ... that we're in at the museum.")

 

            The renovation Oliver referred to started with new electric and fire suppression systems, more restored windows, and refinished siding all around - a project that was completed just on Monday.

            She also recognized the Kodiak Daily Mirror for its generous donation of 40-years worth of negatives:

 

--          (Historical 3                43 sec              "Richard Harris of the ... really great content there.")

 

            Local author Sue Jeffrey was the guest speaker this year, giving what she described as more of a "chat" than a presentation about her book "A Legacy Built to Last," chronicling the 200-year history of the Russian-American Magazin (magazine), which now houses the museum.

            She pointed out how it has survived multiple natural - and even some man-made - threats, starting with being a log building in a wet climate:

 

--          (Historical 4                59 sec              "It survived the Katmai ... and pave Sargent Park.")

 

            Also at the meeting, Pat Holmes, Nancy Kemp and Jane Van Atta were all re-elected to the historical society's board of directors.
