CHINIAK

"A hilarious but accurate account of life and the related humorously funny events that occurred at the Kodiak Tracking Station on Kodiak, Alaska during the 1950's and 1960's."

Compiled and Written By:

TONY SMAKER

This information is widely described as
VERY INACCURATE.
Please read it with that in mind. You can read other's comments on it at the GUEST BOOK for the Cape Chiniak Tracking Station.

NOTES

Unfortunately before CHINIAK TOO was written, Tony died in 1997.

He mentioned the problem of always finding new information for a book of this nature. We hope that this format, being very easily updated, can grow as more information comes to light. However, we would like to preserve Tony's original work intact.

This HTML version of the book requires some adjustments from the original. [Note: There never was a published book. It exists only as xeroxes of the manuscript. We have tried to make it have the same look as our other Kodiak Military History pages and also still have the feel of the original work which was in a three-ring binder. Tony's table of contents had one error. It seems an extra page (53) sneaked into his manuscript causing all subsequent page numbers to be one page off. This has been corrected in this HTML version. Even though we have presented the original (corrected) page numbers in our table of contents, they don't actually relate to anything is this HTML version.

Tony had some spelling that might have been intentional and some, well, maybe not. The spelling of QUONSET has been corrected from his QUANSET. His term for a humorous disease is BUNNY-IDUS. We changed this to BUNNY-ITUS. His CLOUGE we changed to KLUDGE.

Occasionally the editor just HAS to make a short comment. These have been put inside [square brackets].

Tony was not politically correct. We have faithfully reproduced everything he wrote. If you want to include new information, please write. If you just want to pick on his language, take it up with Tony. Please contribute to the guest book. If you have material you would like to add to this web site, please don't hesitate to let us know.
