John Beach Driggs (1852-1914) was an author, medical man and teacher. In 1890 he was sent to northwestern Alaska where he had a great experience with the natives. His works include: Short Sketches From Oldest America (1905). "During many years spent within the Arctic Circle of Northwestern Alaska, at Tig-a-ra (Point Hope Village), where I have lived at the mission station of the Episcopal Church, acting as medical man and teacher, and, later on, in deacon's orders, I have naturally become interested in these ancient people, and have written the following volume of short stories simply to show the nature, traditions and legends of the In-u-pash.
