CSAS News: July 2008
Ed LaChapelle Library Arrives in Silverton
After consultation with his survivors, considerable planning and facilitation by Don Bachman, president of the CSAS, and a very long U-Haul trip from McCarthy, Alaska to Bozeman, Montana by Ron Matous, the personal library of Dr. Edward R. LaChapelle made the final leg of its journey to Silverton via US Mail, arriving in July. Some 70 boxes of materials were immediately placed inside the San Juan Historical Society Archive facility for safekeeping for subsequent cataloging and curation at that facility. Researchers and others will have open access to Ed's library under carefully monitored circumstances, and the materials will be housed in a climate controlled and secure room at the Archive.
Silverton Postmistress Donna Perino and friend of the CSAS Everett Lyons load boxes into the CSAS’s vehicle for transport to the Archive facility.
CSAS’s Andrew Temple takes the first load of boxes into the Archive.
San Juan Historical Society president Bev Rich, and 3rd generation Silvertonian Jim Cole,
both of whom knew Ed, make a load.
