HARRY SHEPPARD. Subpoena; 1928. .1 cu. ft.
Harry Sheppard was the U. S. Marshal for the mining town of Flat, Alaska. In 1921, he entered into a partnership with prominent local businessman, Harry Donnelley, to run a general store in Flat. In the early 1920s, they expanded their business, named Donnelley and Sheppard General Merchandise, with the purchase of the Fullerton's General Merchandise Store in Flat. The business also included a store in Iditarod, Alaska, acquired by Donnelley from Sam Applebaum. The store in Flat burned in a fire in 1924, and was located in temporary quarters until a new building was completed in 1927. Harry Sheppard died in the mid-1930s.
The collection consists of a subpoena ticket issued to Harry Sheppard of Flat, Alaska, to appear before the court of the 4th Division of the District of Alaska in Fairbanks in 1928. The subpoena, dated February 28, 1928, ordered Sheppard to appear on behalf of the defendant in the case of the United States vs. Nellie Beattie. The subpoena is signed by Deputy S. J. Kincaid for U. S. Marshal Lynn Smith.
The collection was acquired by the archives in 2005.
