Dmitrii Tarkhanov was a Russian geologist dispatched to Alaska to explore for useful minerals and ores.  Instead, Baranov, manager of the Golikov/Shelikov Company for the Kodiak area, who planned expansion to the mainland and specifically into Tlingit territory, used him as an ordinary laborer, and gave him as hostage to the Yakutat Tlingit.  But Baranov also gave Tarkhanov the task of making geographic, economic, and ethnographic observations.   When the opportunity arose, Tarkhanov traveled with the Tlingit, Eyak, and others to the Copper River and into Upper Ahtna territory.  He closely interacted with the Yakutat Tlingit, the Eyak, the Alutiit, Chugach and several tribes inhabiting middle and upper Copper River areas.  [historical information taken from the editor's forward in the folder]
