Harry Badger, 91 (November 19, 1960)

Pioneer Harry Badger, for whom Badger Rd. is named, reached 91 years of age yesterday.


Badger was born 91 years ago in Wyoming, Minn. He came to Alaska and the Klondike in 1900 and to Fairbanks in 1903 where he went out to Fairbanks Creek to see how things were going.


Badger was known for many years here as the "Strawberry King." He developed a ranch located about 7 miles out from Fairbanks on Badger Rd.


The oldtimer is now living in a rest home at Mile 12, Richardson Highway.
