In August 2003, the website “Alternative Considerations of Jonestown and Peoples Temple” was re-designed to make it more user-friendly. The initial design by Kevin Hozak, then a Religious Studies major at University of North Dakota, served the site well for five years. Growth and expansion of the site, however, necessitated a re-configuration in 2003 – upon the 25th anniversary of the deaths in Jonestown – which was completed by Elizabeth Parker, a Graphic Design major at San Diego State University.
This online Archive preserves material that once appeared on the website but has been updated or superseded by later items. It gives a valuable glimpse into how the site has changed over the years.
