On Friday, July 19th at 7 PM, Carmichael's welcomes editor and publisher John Clark for a discussion of his great-grandfather's Alaskan adventures in Hazelet's Journal. George Cheever Hazelet was one of the adventurous souls who went to Alaska in 1898 to seek his fortune during the Klondike Gold Rush. He carved his own path across frozen tundra and snow-covered glaciers to a remote valley where he discovered not gold but coal and oil. Hazelet kept a journal of his exploits, meticulously edited by his great-grandson John Clark. Come hear about a forgotten and exciting time in America's past and discover a man who beat the odds to become a prominent leader in Alaska's early days.
