Title The Bonnifield Region, Alaska
Description:
Book: The Bonnifield Region, Alaska.  The 19-teens was the earliest USGS era mapping of the quads in Alaska. This is one of the first American publications to  include Native place names. The Bonnifield Region includes, "The region lying south of Fairbanks between the Tanana River and crest of the Alaska Range has been been the scene of placer-mining operations since 1903, and after the stampede to Fairbanks in 1904 a large number of prospectors visited the many creeks which flow northward from these mountains. The area has long been known as the "Bonnefield district," having been named for John E. Bonnifield, who was one of the first men to locate in this part of Alaska." p.9.
