Alaska caravan

I have a 54 Globetrotter which I bought from an older gentleman. He told us that his dad bought it new in 1954. He also remembered it went on a caravan to Alaska at some point. Is there I way to check and see what year that was? The original owners were Loyd and Margurite Larson and the ghost numbers appear to be 6244 Thank you to who eve can help us put this piece of history together.

According to early WBCCI Membership Directories:

1958-64: #1366 - Loyd & Marguerite Larson, Muskegon, MI, no caravans.
1978-91: #6244 - Loyd R & Marguerite Larson, Muskegon, MI, caravan 114 - Alaska Summer 1977

Obviously the Larson's rejoined the club in 1977 (being first relisted in the 1978 Directory), probably to join the 1977 Alaska caravan, but their original WBCCI number was apparently unavailable at that time.

Between 1963 and 1977, #6244 was assigned to other members in the states of Washington and Ohio, neither of which I believe owned the Airstream in question. I did not check #6244 after 1995 (it was unassigned from 1992-95). It has likely been reassigned since 1995.
