Adak Eagle's Call


The Adak island weekly newsletter. You probably tossed away piles of the things, so did I. The earlier ones were more artistic I think; back when Louise Weaver was the artist (and, sometimes, so was I) decorating the back page. Then came the computer; easy to make words, and artists became almost extinct.

Each issue will be available in two resolutions; 200 dpi fullpage greyscale (large, but captures fine detail), and half-size which is better for online viewing.
