Located two degrees south of the Arctic Circle, Nome, Alaska, was the largest town in northern Alaska in 1925, with 455 Alaska Natives and 975 settlers of European descent. Despite this, its population was greatly diminished from its peak of 20,000 during the gold rush at the turn of the 20th century.
