History & History Related Items

St Paul history:

This island group was discovered in 1786 by Russian fur traders. It was during their occupation of the islands that Aleuts from various areas were brought here to work in the processing and to hunt for seals. Many of their descendents live on the islands today. Sealing hunting continued for many years resulting in fewer and fewer seals. Finally the Fur Seal Act of 1910 placed restrictions on the industry. Poverty reigned here once sealing was basically prohibited. During World War II, residents were relocated to southeast Alaska and were not treated with much compassion. Later in 1979, many received compensation for their treatment. After the Fur Seal Act of 1983, restrictions were lifted and management of the industry was left to the local governments. Commercial harvesting of the pelts gradually decreased and was halted on St. Paul in 1985. Currently fur seal pelt possession is prohibited except for subsistence activities.
