Mug Up: The NN Cannery History Project
Join Dr. Katherine Ringsmuth for a presentation and community conversation about the NN Cannery History Project, a collaborative effort to preserve the history of more than a century of cannery lives. The NN Cannery is located on the south side of the Naknek River, one of the five rivers that make up the Bristol Bay salmon fishery.
Dr. Ringsmuth is a professor of history at the University of Alaska Anchorage and the author of five books for the National Park Services, including two on canneries. She also has a personal connection to the NN Cannery. Her dad, Gary Johnson, was the last of the Alaska Packers Association superintendents, and she labored as a cannery worker to pay for college.
