SmokeyThe beautiful pastel paintings of Alaskan huskies by Alaskan artist Josephine Crumrine, reproduced by four-color lithography, graced the menu covers in the dining rooms of the Alaska Steamship Company during the 1940’s and ’50’s. One of these menus, depicting an Army sled dog named ‘Smokey,’ shown here, is on file at the Alaska State Library and available to view on the digital archives.

The Sept-Oct issue, 2019 issue of Alaskan History Magazine features an article about Josephine Crumrine and the Alaska Steamship Company menus, with several other sled dog portraits for which the artist became well known. You can read the entire article with all the full-color portraits at the Alaskan History Magazine’s issuu pages
