THE DENALI 7958-59 dedication to Dr. Otto William Geist, Pioneer Alaskan Archeologist, Paleontologist, and Naturalist— A Builder of the University of Alaska Dr. Otto W. Geist- initiated the archeological work on St. Lawrence Island; con- tributed greatly to the geographical knowledge and Eskimo nomenclature of that island; secured for the University of Alaska Museum one of the largest Eskimo archeological col- lections in the world; is chiefly responsible for the present status of the museum; gathered thousands of natural history specimens for the University of Alaska and other institutions; made the only accurate observations of the Black Rapids Glacier advance in 1937; conducted several expeditions in the Yukon Territory and Alaska; has been in charge of the Frick Laboratory collection in Alaska; publisher of the book " Archeological Excavations at Kukulik " and of numerous articles; has always been generous in sharing his vast amount of scientific information. Dr. Geist first went to work for the University in 1 925; his retirement this year ends 34 years of service to the school, the Territory, and science. Governor Egan Board of Regents William F. Egan was elected as the first Governor of the state of Alaska, in 1958. The letter on the next page was written to the students of the University while Governor Egan was convalescing from an illness that befell him immediately following his inaug- uration Jan. 3, 1959. With sincere thanks, we re- print the ' Governor ' s letter in its entirety. Members, and terms of office, are: Dr. Patty, Pres. of the Univ., ex officio member Dr. Phillip H.

Following an extensive remodeling job several years ago, the building assumed its present role as site of administrative offices, Physics and Electrical Engineering Departments, as well as Home Ec, Music and Anthropology. As many of the offices now housed here -are moved to Bunnell, additional class- rooms and labs will be installed in Eielson. The University museum, tourist and student attention-getter on the top floor, will move to the space now occupied by the library, as the library is moved to Bunnell. The Bunnell Building; a student surveys the progress as of March 25, 1959. Burgess Construction Co., prime contractors on the job, continued inside work through all but the coldest portion of the winter. and the Bunnell Building The Bunnell Building, in an artist ' s conception sketch. Costing more than 2V2 million dollars, the building is dedicated to Dr. Charles Bunnell, first President of the University, who retained this post until his retirement in 1949. Our President Dr. Ernest N. Patty President of the University from the President: Dr. Patty has been President of the Uni- versity since 1953; his association with the U. of A. dates back to 1922, however, when, as a recent graduate of the University of Washington, he joined the faculty as Profes- sor of Geology and Mining. From 1925 to 1935, Dr. Patty was Dean of the College, and head of the School of Mines. Between 1935 and 1953, Dr. Patty was president and general manager of a number of gold mining corporations located in Alas- ka and the Yukon Territory. Dr. Patty holds the following degrees; B.S., Univ. of Wash., 1919; E.M., Univ. of Wash., 1929; D.E., Univ. of Alaska, 1953. During Dr. Patty ' s administration, the Uni- versity has experienced record growth, both of physical plant and of enrollment. Years ago, it was assumed that the advantages of a University accrued solely to the individual student. The modern concept is that society also gains by having more trained and disciplined minds for the World ' s work. Each year the people of Alaska invest large sums of money in their University. Is this a good for our state and our nation, or it is not? The product of the University is people— young people. This is the most priceless product imaginable. The administration, the faculty and the students of the Uni- versity of Alaska have accepted a moral obligation to make this investment pay off. Already the State of Alaska has a student portfolio containing several thousand names. I believe this is a sound portfolio. I believe there are many young men and women on campus today who will give a fabulous return on this investment; others will yield a sound and steady return and I do not believe there is a single student who will be written off as a bad investment. The University of Alaska is proud of you. It gives me, your President, a feeling of pride to have a small part in developing this fine product.

A variety of students saw action on the Executive Council during the year. Jim Boyd, Bob Morton, Evie Dunne, and Monte Cady were elected president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer, respectively, in the Spring of 1958. Morton resigned to assume editorship of The Denali, and was replaced by Hank Hanson. Boyd withdrew from school in November, and was succeeded by veep Hanson, who was replaced by Dick Reeve. Evie Dunne transferred to the States at semester ' s end, and was replaced as secretary by Diane Sherriff. As spring elections rolled around once more, Monte Cady was the only member of the original group still in office, and then all were re-elected for ' 59- ' 60.

Chuck Titus Guy Galloway Jerry Hunter Don Smith After a brief period of inactivity due to faulty equipment at the beginning of the year, KUOA was on the air for the remainder of the school year. The combined efforts of Chuck Titus, engineer, and Ron Thiel, manager, plus the rest of a hardworking staff, put the station back on its feet.

POLAR STAR Big news around the Polar Star office during 1958-59 was the succession of editors who oper- ated the paper. At Denali press time the total was up to four, as Merritt Helfferich, Chuck Vern- on, Jim Alguire and Ray Jackson held the post, in that order. Bill Boucher, sole holdover from the ' 57-58 staff, was managing editor all year. During the Fall months, the Star had some unexpected com- petition for student readership, as The Trashcan, anonymously written and mimeographed, ap- peared for a brief three issues. During the final eight weeks of the second semester, the Polar Star was printed three times a week, and included material from the Staff Bul- letin. At left, then-editor Helfferich looks on as then-reporter Vernon proofreads some copy at Jessen ' s Weekly, publishers of the Polar Star. . . . with a variety of editors, Ray Jackson, then-sports-editor, pounds out some copy, of a Pall Mall and some H G coffee.

A Sophomore majoring in Home Ec, Marcia was crowned with an ivory and golden headpiece custom designed by a local jeweler. This crown will be used in all future Miss University coronations. At left: Queen Marcia and date John Hajdukovich dancing. Marcia was selected from a field of five Princesses, each of whom had been chosen from the ASUA feminine population by a screening committee set up for the purpose.

One of the most popular student activities, from the standpoint of participation, and one of the most productive, from the standpoint of entertainment, is the Choir of the North. The group has presented several concerts in the Fairbanks area this year, in addition to touring the state; highlight of the ten-day trip that covered most of the principal cities of Alaska was the Choir appearance before the combined House and Senate of the First State Legislature.

These traditional functions have a two fold purpose: 1 ) they provide practical experience in entertaining for Home Ec students, 2) they provide a situation in which the engineering students may gain poise in practicing the social graces.

It was founded by and named after Peter Buschman who arrived in 1897 and built a salmon cannery and a small sawmill. Petersburg was incorporated in 1910 and has shown a slow but steady growth. The population today exceeds 1600. Fishing and logging are the main industries found in the Petersburg area. Petersburg is predominantly a Norwegian community and boasts of the largest Halibut fishing fleet in Alaska. With the two large cold storage plants, two shrimp canneries and four Salmon canneries Petersburg is one of the major fish producing cities in Alaska. 215 Spring and .
