King the Dog Lady; Ketchikan's one-woman humane society -
There is an alley in downtown Ketchikan named Betty King Alley.
It's a very narrow little mid-block lane that begins on Dock
Street and cuts through to Mission and then to Mill Street. Mill
is a comparatively new (1972) street named for the sprawling
and now-gone Ketchikan Spruce Mill that buzzed and rumbled with
activity at the site for some eighty years. A few years back,
the previously anonymous alley was finally named. The name chosen
was Daly Alley, chosen to honor one of the Spruce Mills pioneer
families. It was a dubious honor, actually. And at least one
member of that family may not have been delighted with the tribute.
