Ted Stevens Foundation gifts Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act papers to University of Alaska Anchorage Consortium Library
by Marci Suazo |
The Ted Stevens Foundation has gifted a selection of the late Congressman Ted Stevens’ papers to the archives at the UAA/APU Consortium Library at the University of Alaska Anchorage. The selection includes memos, maps, photographs and more from the Stevens Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act collection.
“Our hope is that this is just the starting point of the donation of the entire Stevens Collection and the eventual creation of an Alaska leaders archive. As ANCSA has taught us, there’s no single Alaskan leader who has shaped our state. It has always been a collective effort,” said Karina Waller, executive director of the Ted Stevens Foundation.
The goal is that the Consortium Library becomes a place Alaskans can go to understand their history, where it can inform important future decisions and provide real-world research opportunities for students and the UAA community. The Stevens collection of ANCSA papers is available for public viewing by appointment. To schedule an appointment, email or call the library archives (907-786-1849), or visit the archives website for more information.
