Alaska (W3)

Die Bezeichnung des 49. US-Staates engl. "Alaska" wurde (über die russische Bezeichnung) aus einer Sprache der Ureinwohner (Aleut "alakshak", "alaeksu") übernommen und soll dt. "Das große Land" bedeuten. Dies scheint jedoch die Folge eines Mißverständnisses des Senators Charles Sumner gewesen zu sein, der die schon inoffiziell benutzte Bezeichnung "Alaska" als offizielle Bezeichnung vorschlug. Die wörtliche Bedeutung wird als engl. "mainland" oder "peninsula" angenommen.

Die Bezeichnung "Alyeska", "Alayeska", war der ursprüngliche Name Alaskas, der von den Ureinwohnern, den Aleuten geprägt wurde und bedeutet "großes Land" bzw. "Land, an dem die Wellen sich brechen".

When William Henry Seward, Secretary of State for U.S. President Andrew Johnson, signed the treaty authorizing the purchase of Alaska from Czarist Russia for $7 million on March 30, 1867, most Americans thought he was crazy. But public opinion quickly changed when gold was discovered in the region, and its natural gas, coal, and oil reserves, in addition to its seafood and lumber industries, have proved to be far more valuable than its gold. Unfortunately, Seward did not live to see his foresight commemorated as a legal holiday in the state of Alaska.

...
"It's from the Greek. Hyperborean." He has his etymology right, perhaps more than he realizes. Dictionaries show "hyperborean" as the general designation for high Arctic denizens. But the word has even greater resonance for today's environmentalists and scientists. In Greek myth, the "Hyperboreans" live in a warm, perpetually sunlit polar land beyond the north wind. That notion - of warmth in a polar land - is today becoming uncomfortably close to the truth.

Juneau (W3)

"Juneau", die Hauptstadt des US-Bundesstaates Alaska, wurde nach dem Goldgräber "Joe Juneau" benannt, der dort zusammen mit Richard Harris im Jahr 1880 Gold entdeckte.

(E?)(L?) http://web.archive.org/web/20120421225519/http://www.1911encyclopedia.org:80/Juneau

"JUNEAU", formerly "Harrisburg", a mining and trading town picturesquely situated at the mouth of Gold Creek on the continental shore of Gastineau channel, south-east Alaska, and the capital of Alaska. Pop. (1900), 1864, including 450 Indians. It has a United States custom-house and courthouse. The city has fishing, manufacturing and trading interests, but its prosperity is chiefly due to the gold mines in the adjacent Silver Bow basin, the source of Gold Creek, and the site of the great Perseverance mine, and to those on the Treadwell lode on Douglas Island, 2 m. from Juneau.

Placer gold was found at the mouth of the creek in 1879, and the city was settled in 1880 by two prospectors named "Joseph Juneau" and "Richard Harris". The district was called "Juneau" and the camp "Harrisburg" by the first settlers; exploring naval officers named the camp "Rockwell", in honour of Commander "Charles Henry Rockwell", U.S.N. (b. 1840). A town meeting then adopted the name of "Juneau". The town was incorporated in 1900. In October 1906 the seat of government of Alaska was removed from Sitka to Juneau.
