Lives of KFYC Members

Alaskans live lives of amazing diversity and interest. Our members include judges, ship's captains, scientists, and many other occupations, sometimes in the same individual!

If you have a story or photos that you are willing to share, contact your webmaster.

As our first study, allow us to provide a glimpse into the life of longtime club treasurer Iris Johnson. One of her first jobs, and one with an interesting history, is when she became the first female US Merchant Mariner in Alaska. Way to go, Iris! These two photos are from her very first voyage.

Here's our Iris as she boards the Alaska Roughneck.

Here's Iris aboard the Roughneck. Still smiling!
