A Fairbanks woman with a heart of gold - Seattle Times
"Come in, Dearie! Come in!" It was wartime in Alaska. Eva McGown was on duty. Often the visitors were military wives, newly arrived in Fairbanks, with babies in arms and other tykes tugging at their skirts. They were tired and discouraged. They had no place to stay. Somewhere along their disheartening searches for lodging, sympathetic Fairbanksans had suggested that the women "go see Eva McGown at the Nordale."
