Tales of the more prominent ladies are part of Fairbanks folklore. Their generous tips to the neighborhood paperboys and love of dogs were well known. Several demonstrated their generosity by grubstaking prospectors for another season's work at the creeks, or by supporting community projects. Others became house-wives, quietly blending into community life.
