Alaska Boundary Question
Arose out of differences of opinion as to
the interpretation of the 1828 Convention between Russia and Great
Britain, and particularly as to the boundary of the coast strip. The
United States contention was that the boundary should follow a line
approximately parallel to the coast and thirty marine miles distant
therefrom; the Canadian, that it should follow the summit of the first
range, crossing many of the inlets near their mouths. The decision of
the Joint Commission of 1903 did not concede the United States claims in
full, but gave them an unbroken littoral, substantially what they had
contended for. =Index=: (Sir James Douglas era) Effect of Russian occupation, 38; early
