STATEMENT OF JOINT OBJECTIVES/PROJECT MANAGEMENT PLAN The Resurrection Bay Historical Society (RBHS) is a non-profit (501)c(3) corporation established to collect, preserve and make accessible to the public materials that help establish and illustrate the history of the Seward area. The Resurrection Bay Historical Society owns a significant collection of one of a kind documents and photographs detailing Seward residents, businesses, and transportation history. This makes the RBHS particularly unique as a partner as their documents will be used for background research, and key photos owned by them will be included in the final book publication. The National Park Service and the Resurrection Bay Historical Society share a mutual interest, desire, and directives to preserve and interpret the local history of the Resurrection Bay area. (1) (2) The objective of this Agreement is to prepare a ready-for-print publication by researching, writing and completing the draft National Park Service (NPS) report, “Seward Lot Histories: Windows through Time, 1903-1990s” which has been delayed for a number of years due to lack of staffing and expertise. This historical narrative will highlight stories of property owners and their involvement in, and contributions to the community of Seward. The project will include selecting approximately 100 photographs of the most evocative historic images of Seward, Alaska and writing highly descriptive annotations for telling the story of human activity for each Seward lot from approximately 1903 – 2010s. The final product will consist of a professional graphic design layout, in InDesign format, book (approximately 100-200 double-sided pages) ready for print in color. The project addresses the public purpose in several ways. It will increase the basic knowledge and understanding of the contributions and achievements of individual Seward residents to the development of an early 20th century Alaska frontier town. The project furthers the joint NPS and RBHS missions to preserve, interpret, and make shared history available to the public. The book will be made available to local schools, libraries, museums, and tribes.
