From the introduction: “Cuttlefish Three, presents an account of the Jesse Lee Home at Unalaska during the early years of this Century. The Home was a Methodist mission that became famed for the quality of its students — Dr. P. Gordon Gould, Mr. Simeon Oliver, Mr. Benny Bensen, to name a few. Although the Home was first opened in 1890 and operated continuously until its move to Seward in 1924, ‘Home on the Bering’ concentrates on the years 1911 to 1915. These are the years covered by the bulk of our material, the scrapbooks compiled by Clara Cook.” Neat ink inscription to the verso of the title page by a former student recalling her own memories while attending the venerable school else no detectable flaws with contents bright, clean and unmarked with tight, sound binding; fine.
