I'm not clear on which sentence you are asking about, so I will answer for both.

 

Who was the first European to reach North America?

 

1) Who is a pronoun   2) European is a noun (European in this case is a noun, but can also be used as an adjective.)  3) North America is a proper noun, as it is the name of a specific geographical place.

 

I studied an interesting article kayaking in Alaska in world magazine.

corrected: I studied an interesting article in World Magazine titled "Kayaking in Alaska."

 

1) I is a propnoun   2) article is a noun   3) World Magazine is a proper noun   4) Alaska is a proper noun

There are two (proper) nouns in your sentence: European and North America.

Mr. Guess is definitely correct. I was in such a hurry to mention that European in your sentence is a noun, but can also be used as an adjective, that I forgot to mention it is, of course, a proper noun.
