The Candace Waugaman Collection consists of historical manuscripts, memorabilia, ephemera, and photographs. The bulk of the materials relate to the history of the Fairbanks region; however, parts of the collection relate to events around Alaska as a whole and to the history of the Yukon Territory. Examples of materials in the collection include playing cards, poems, pamphlets and brochures, postcards, business records, and advertisements. Highlights of the collection include the personal papers of Harvey Carlisle, humorous lyrics and poems, and historical postcards.
Candace Waugaman has been a resident of Alaska since the late 1960s. She has collected Alaskan and Yukon memorabilia for many years. Waugaman is a real estate broker, serves as a volunteer and board member for several Fairbanks non-profit agencies, has been the secretary for the Tanana-Yukon Historical Society, served as President of the Alaska Historical Society, and has helped organize the International Symposium on Mining.
