John L. Beau

JOHN L. BEAU has an enviable reputation in Nome as a reliable merchant and square man. He has built his business, one of the most extensive of Seward Peninsula, by honest methods. In the early days he sold shoe strings in St. Michael. He came to Alaska to blaze a trail to fortune. He knew there was "no royal road to success," and there was not an honorable endeavor nor any kind of legitimate labor that could impair his dignity or thwart his purpose. He has attained the success that waits on industry, and has won the esteem and confidence of the men of the Northland.
