Anchorage, Alaska is the most populous city in Alaska and the northernmost city in the United States. Anchorage was founded two years after Alaska became a U.S. territory, as the location for the construction of the Alaska Railroad. A tent city formed at the railroad headquarters, which later became the city of Anchorage, incorporated in 1920. The railroad was completed in 1923 and became the center of the economy in Anchorage.
Air transportation and the United States military grew to contribute to the economy in Anchorage during the 1940s as Elmendorf Air Force Base and Fort Richardson were built. In 1964, the 9.2 Good Friday Earthquake hit anchorage, killing 115 residents and damaging millions of dollars in property. Construction boomed throughout the 1960s to rebuild the city. Aviation, military, construction and railroading remained the base of the economy until 1968 when the oil industry came to Anchorage as oil was discovered in Prudhoe Bay.
The history of railroading, aircraft, construction and military in Anchorage includes a number of jobs that may have caused a large amount of asbestos exposure.
