The Great Alaskan Bush Company is a product of Anchorage’s oil boom era, when strip club operators didn’t place the same premium on decorum, let alone legality, that Harris enforces today.
When the original Great Alaskan Bush Company opened in 1979 in downtown Anchorage, about half the dancers had pimps, according to the club’s founding owner, Edna Cox. In a 1985 Anchorage Daily News profile, Cox estimated that she’d run so many pimps off that only one in 10 of her dancers had one.
