Cecil E. Rhode (July 7, 1902 – December 3, 1979) was an American writer and journalist known for his writings about Alaska, particularly in National Geographic. Active professionally from 1933 until his death, Rhode was best known for bringing wide exposure to the public about the wilds of Alaska.
Rhode is the older brother of Leo Franklin Rhode (1908–2002), who came to Alaska with Cecil in 1933 and also settled on the Kenai Peninsula. Leo Rhode served as a business, civic and political leader in Homer for many decades. Their cousin, Clarence Rhode (1913–1958), followed the brothers to Alaska, arriving in 1935 at their urging. Clarence Rhode was an official with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service until his death in a plane crash.
