The Maxine & Jesse Whitney Museum in Valdez, Alaska, has its roots in the generous donation of Mrs. Maxine Whitney of what is reportedly the largest private collection of Native Alaskan art and artifacts in the world. For more than 50 years, Jesse and Maxine Whitney traveled throughout the Native villages of Alaska buying directly from the artists. Mrs. Whitney assumed ownership of the Eskimo Museum in Fairbanks in 1969 and operated it until the mid 1980s. Prince William Sound Community College accepted the collections in the Fall of 1998, and opened the facility to the public the next summer.
