Arctic Directory: ConocoPhillips funds ‘outdoor stories’ transcripts

As reported in the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner on May 31, “Alaska Tracks: Sharing outdoors stories of old,” by Randy Zarnke, president of Alaska Trappers Association, a new series will begin appearing June 14 in the newspaper.

“For the past 12 years, I’ve traveled around Alaska, recording oral history interviews with men and women who live an active outdoor lifestyle,” Zarnke said. “Thanks to support from the Outdoor Heritage Foundation of Alaska and the Alaska Trappers Association, we now have nearly 150 interviews in our collection,” representing people from approximately 50 different Alaska communities.

CD’s of selected interviews are sold through ATA. In response to numerous requests for written versions of the interviews, Zarnke said the News-Miner will begin running the transcripts in Sunday Features sections, thanks to the generosity of ConocoPhillips Alaska, which provided the funds to cover the cost of transcribing the audio recordings.

Houston-based ConocoPhillips, one of Alaska’s largest oil and gas explorers and producers, is known worldwide for its technological expertise in reservoir management and exploration, 3-D seismic technology, high-grade petroleum coke upgrading and sulfur removal.
