The boundary separating Canada from the Alaskan panhandle was poorly defined before the turn of the 20th century, but clarity was not deemed important. That casual attitude evaporated after gold was discovered in the Klondike in 1896 and the panhandle offered a ready means of entry to the gold fields.American and British negotiators (Britain then represented Canada in foreign affairs) failed to reach agreement in 1898. A reluctant President Roosevelt eventually agreed.Each side nominated three commissioners; a majority vote was necessary to decide matters. Matters were decided in favor of the American claim by a vote of four to two.It is not known whether the Englishman was influenced by his government. Settlement of the Alaskan boundary dispute was a major step forward in Anglo-American cooperation.
