The objective of this page is to try to put together in one place information on the history of the breed available on the Internet. It is obviously going to be a long term project. ;)
If you would like to contribute to this project either with a kennel article, picture(s) or video(s) from you personal collection, or info on any of the dogs, people, etc. included here then I would love to hear from you. If you are contributing a scanned photo, etc. you must be its owner (it must be in your possession). You will, off course, be given credit for ownership of anything you contribute..
Historical Photos, Video and Audio Clips
Pre 1950 Photos
I will start a photo page of pre-1950 dogs on this site when / if I get the material. In the meantime I've included these links.
Alaska Digital Library
Links to historical photos and rare video clips. Besides a link to the site where you can do your own searching, I've provided direct links to photos and video clips that I have found and thought would be of interest to Siberian fanciers.

A Brief History of the Siberian Husky in America (Siberian Husky Club of America)
Where Did They Come From and What Did They Look Like?
This is an absolutely fantastic 3 part article with photos by Bob Thomas. Bob probably has one of the best collections of Siberian Husky historical photos and information around. I look forward to each issue of the ISHC News just to read his historical aritcles. This one is on the Internet and available to all fanciers of the breed!
They Act Like They Can Run forever By John D. Tanner, Jr.
A reprint with the author's permission of an article that appeared in the Sept. 1977 issue of the ISHC News.
Future project. History of significant kennels of the past but might look at including any kennel that has been in operation for at least 15 or 20 years. I'm thinking I will also divid this into pre and post 1950 kennels. I am interested in both show AND racing kennels.
