Fairbanks, Alaska, situated in the borough of Fairbanks North Star, was founded in 1901 by Captain E.T. Barnette, who was on his way to set up a trading post in Tanacross, when the steamboat he was on ran aground a few miles from that place in what is now Fairbanks. It is named after Teddy Roosevelt’s Vice President, Charles W. Fairbanks.
