I was born in Anchorage, Alaska little more than a week after Alaska became the 49th state. My father (Harold Gage Sr.) had moved to Alaska in 1953 with his fledgling family following the American dream. After mustering out of the military in WWII, he trained as a jeweler and horologist (watch maker). He came to Alaska following a job offer, but in a short time he opened his own business selling fine jewelery and Alaskana souvenirs .
