Administrative/Biographical History:
Vern Brickley came to Valdez, Alaska from Tacoma, Washington, in 1936 not as a
photographer, but to work on a movie set. He lived through one winter on Fox Island in Prince
William Sound, where he was involved in the herring fishery and raising foxes. Just prior to
WWII he moved to Fairbanks, then was drafted into the Army as a photographer, and moved
to Anchorage in 1940. He was in the Army at Fort Richardson for about three years, and
discharged in 1945. He traveled throughout the Aleutians during the Japanese invasion, and
many of the photographs of Attu from the campaign bear his name. It is thought that he
traded for some of these images, since he was printing them commercially.

Until 1954 he and his family lived in Anchorage at 920 B East 15th
/ Avenue. He is listed
continuously in the phone book until April, but no business is listed in the yellow pages. At
that time the family moved to Moose Pass, and Brickley worked at the military rehab center in
Seward, teaching dark room techniques. According to his son Bill, this is when he picked up
the historical negatives of Seward. They moved back to Anchorage in 1958, and Brickley then
became a photographer for the Army Corps of Engineers, working for the District Engineers at
Elmendorf Air Force Base. Many of the Corp photographs of the 1964 earthquake are his work.
He died October 28, 1970, survived at the time by his widow, Margaret; a son, William; two
daughters, Mrs. Don Parker, and Miss Eileen Brickley.
