Copies of newspaper articles regarding Paul and Mollie Satko and their children from the SEATTLE TIMES, 1940-1943. Paul Satko, Jr. family on the boat they built, ARK OF JUNEAU, attracted many curious onlookers prior to its launch on November 6, 1939, into the Tacoma city waterway heading for Alaska.
