Anacortes History

  1. Betty Lowman makes it to Ketchikan (1937)

    August 19, 2022, All Day
    Ketchikan, Alaska

    Betty Lowman would forever immortalize herself in history when she paddled 1,300 miles, for 66 days, through the Inside Passage of British Columbia, from Guemes Island to Ketchikan, Alaska. Betty had always been one to push limits, at 14 she woke up early one school day to swim a half hour trip across the Guemes Channel, she was a sports hero, valedictorian, journalist extraordinaire and also had a healthy passion for choral music. It was only two days after her graduation from The University of Washington when she departed for her trip. A friend, Florence Steele would start the trip with Betty though returned after just a week after a strong reaction to a small-pox vaccination. Betty would make the rest of the trip alone, on the way lodging with locals where she could and roughing it on the beach where she couldn't. The trip was perilous at times and she would find herself stranded on multiple occasions. In the end though, she was greeted back home to an excited crowd, she was a hero.
