As a child, Kurt Tripp, co-owner and Ivory Jacks visionary, would see mammoth tusks that had been unearthed by the spring floods on the banks of the Yukon River near his childhood home of Fairbanks, Alaska. Kurt would play around these immense tusks and bones that had been collected by his grandfather, a riverboat pilot, and his father, an avid rock hound and outdoorsman. He was curious about what they were and where they came from, how long they had been buried and what the massive creature looked like that had carried them. Unbeknownst to young Kurt, this profound fascination ultimately led to the business he would create with his wife, Francine, years later.
