Scope and content

Head and shoulders portrait of a woman, Nellie Cushman, sitting in a chair, facing front, and looking right, toward a window. She is wearing a hat, glasses, coat, and blouse or dress. A cropped version of this photograph and a story were published on Page 14 of the Oregon Journal city edition on Monday, January 31, 1921, under the headline “Woman Is Experienced Miner / Took $100,000 From Claim.” The photograph had the following caption: “Miss Nellie Cushman, on visit here from Alaska.” The story reported that Cushman “is in Portland after traveling more than 480 miles of Alaska’s most frigid domain by dog team as the first step in a trip that will take her to Bisbee, Ariz., to visit relatives.” The story also reported: “Miss Cushman has been in Alaska much of the time since 1874 and there became the owner of claim No. 19 on Bonanza creek at Dawson, from which she took out more than $100,000 in gold. She was among the first to go to Fairbanks when gold was discovered there.”
