About
Incomplete record - should be at least 139 maps, LATLONGs truncated in PH I by GIPSY - 9511. Island group in SE Alaska, extends S from Cross Sound and Icy Strait to Dixon Entrance. 280 miles long.
Alexander Archipelago is a large group of islands in Southeast Alaska. It makes up a large portion of the Alaska panhandle and run parallel to the Coast Mountains of the mainland. The islands are covered with temperate rainforests consisting largely of western hemlock, and Sitka spruce. Logging used to be a major industry for this reason and still plays a large impact but is steadily declining. Today's major businesses are fishing and tourism.

Alexander Archipelago is also famous for the much debated Alexander Archipelago Wolf.

History
Named in 1867 by U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) for Tsar Alexander of Russia. See King George the Third Archipelago.
