SITKA, ALASKA Calvin was among the leading marine biologists of his day, a friend of John Steinbeck, and the co-author with Ed Ricketts of the classic “Between Pacific Tides,” which is now in its fifth edition. In part two of our four-part oral history series on the establishment of the West Chichagof-Yakobi Wilderness area, freelance producer Lisa Busch talks with Mary Purvis about her grandfather, Jack Calvin, and with Chuck and Alice Johnstone about some of their early experiences with Calvin navigating the Chichagof coastline.
