Published in June 1956 in the same year Alaska, then a territory of the United States, ratified its constitution, this map features several detailed insets of such areas as the Inside Passage and the Aleutian Islands. A relative size comparison of Alaska and the United States demonstrates that if the states westernmost point were superimposed on the California coast, its easternmost point would be on the east coast of South Carolina.

• Detailed inset of Alaska's Inside Passage and the Bering Sea
• Inset maps of the Diomede Islands and the continuation of the Aleutian Islands
• Relative size of Alaska and the United States, and judicial divisions
• Cities, towns, and abandoned or seasonally occupied settlements
