" HON. JAMES WICKERSHAM JULY, 4, 1915 This cornerstone was constructed by volunteer citizens an Judge James Wickersharn, delegate to congress from Alaska, foi the purpose of arousing public interest in the establishment of a land-grant college in Alaska. The cornerstone was a symbol of hope and inspiration for Alaskans interested in higher education and its very presence aided in rallying popular support. The 1917 Legislature created the Alaska Agricultural College and School of Mines which opened on September 18, 1922. Tb i University of Alaska, its successor, was established July 1, 1935 iwnmi« MMPimaiBl . . - " : . : .: ■:-r. ■ H The cornerstone of the Alaska Agricultural College and School of Mines symbolizes an idea and mirrors a physical plant which has changed the College Hill as well as the preconceived notions of the University. Judge Wickersham envisioned an insti- tution devoted to instruction in Mining and Agriculture, but this idea has changed progressively since the College became the University of Alaska in 1935. The present University physical plant reflects the immense growth which has been taking place in the past three years. Campus construction during the 1962-63 school year has reached a peak, with more than six projects being built. The previous picture symbolizes another aspect of campus " construction " which also continues daily. Engineer ' s Day pranks left the Bunnell Building without desks, but many classes continued despite the inconvenience. The depth and awareness of the University ' s goal must be constantly alive, even on holidays. The administration, faculty, and students must also look past the impres- sive campus expansion and see that the University community as a group of people continues to expand academically. The 1963 DENALI is dedicated to these ideals. y w ci r (K i, i T A T N Pf fDENTlMLUAM • WOOD » ■ ■ Tm IN CH4R££ OP DR. CHRISTIAN T. ELVEY Photo by: Don C. Knudsen 10 DR.

LI II . I S STQMDk The Division of Statewide Services was born on July 1 of 1961. Its birth grew out of the union of some already existing departments and an entirely new one. The idea of coordinating all of the off campus, evening division and special education pro- grams of the University into the one Division of Statewide Services was not new in educational circles, but was a new concept on the University of Alaska campus. The Division was estab- lished with four departments. The four departments are: 1 . Evening, off-campus and correspondence study 2. Summer sessions, Conferences and Institutes 3. Cooperative Extension Service in Agriculture and Home Economics 4. Audio- Visual Communications This department also supervises the Community colleges in the state: Anchorage Community College Juneau-Douglas Community College Ketchikan Community College Palmer Community College Sitka Community College Besides this, the department distributes more than 90,000 bulletins on everything from cooking to raising corn. 17 UBRARY JOHN S.

From the ancient Greeks to Contemporary Angry Young Men, the Arts — Drama, Literature, Music, Philosophy, and Art have stirred and occupied the world ' s greatest minds. The College of Arts and Letters is dedicated to the idea that every man is endowed with the spark of creativity and that every man must be given the freedom and opportunity to display and refine his powers of comprehension and expression. The College of Arts and Letters ran boast some of the finest instructional minds, which have been drawn together fro . u over the world to provide a provocative and challenging atmosphere for the students of the University of Alaska. The courses in foreign languages, linguistics, literature, drama, and philosophy offer a wide range of selection to the students who have grown inquisitive about the broader aspects of culture. w. v ;■ r F£OFE££OR Cm2L££ fcW D£AN: COLLEGE OP fl QAND LETTERS 25 DANNY PIERCE Chouinards Art Institution American Art School Brooklyn Museum Art School A T 26 RONALD SENUNGETUK Rochester Institute of Technology, ' 60, B.F.A. ■ " »T»« J ZNGUCU PROFESSOR ARTHUR WILLS Denver University, ' 51, B.A. University of Kansas, ' 58, Ph.D. ■■■MB PROFESSOR LEWIS KNAPP Visiting Carnegie Professor (Fall semester) 27 i ■ THOMAS J.

The four students, pictured on the opposite page, were chosen from a field of approximately 70 students. Though the University of Alaska lost, they were able to score higher than any other losing team that competed against Temple University. c o L L B W L 37 TREPETRJHED FOREST By Robert Sherwood A lonely cafe in the middle of the desert serves as the set for a drama which changes the lives of all con- cerned. A militant cafe owner; his lovesick, starry-eyed daughter; a young gas station attendant; an old man; a killer, Duke Mantee; and his group of protectors. 38 Love, in its adolescent form, grips the starry-eyed miss for the traveling Ameri- can who is lost. m Strife begins when the people are interrupted by the group of convicts, headed by Duke Mantee, who have just escaped from prison. Taking over the cafe by force, Mantee and his group try to terrorize the inhabitants. The lost. American, played by Robin Fowler, finds himself and dies be- cause of his newly found purpose. OF BfOLO fCAL SCIENCES AND RENEWABLE The greatest study of Man is Man himself. How does he function; how is he related to other living things; what is the ecology of animals and vegetables; how do they affect Man and how does Man affect them ? This is an age of expanding interests. Animal and terrestrial conservation and new prob- lems of Man ' s adaptation to life in outer space demand equal attention. The College of Biological Sciences and Renewable Resources is vitally concerned with all fields of biology, from the automatic flagellation of the tiniest microscopic animacule to the fascinating problems of physiological slowdown of Man in outer space. 40 a ytim- $£?

COLLEGE OP BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES AND EDUCATION A nation has no greater wealth than the rich and fertile minds of its young children. The bright eyes and keen ears are constantly seeking and learning, comprehending and as- similating the mysteries of the limitless objects and ideas that compose life in the world. Some children are gifted with the seeds of genius while others are never quick to understand. The College of Behavioral Sciences and Education is dedicated to the study of man ' s formation — how he learns and what the best methods are to stimulate his mind and broaden his capac- ity for knowledge. 46 DEAN: OCU Q OF BBWORAL QC1WCB AND EDUCATION 47 ANTHROPOLOGY AND GEOGRAPHY DR.

William Bayes, USAF Evening and off-campus instruction includes classes on the military installations, classes in Alaskan communities, and evening classes on the main campus. Correspondence courses are being developed. Classes at the military installations are residence extensions of the University curriculum. They were established by the Board of Regents upon request of the Department of Defense agencies to provide higher education for servicemen and their dependents in Alaska. All even- ing and off-campus courses provided under this program are fully accredited, and credit earned is accepted toward University of Alaska residence requirements in degree earning programs. Credit is also transferable to other colleges. The program has grown immensely since its inception on Ladd Air Force Base in 1949. In 1950 the Elmendorf Air Force Base program began and currently there are 11 different areas participating in the instruction program: Adak, Kodiak, Kenai, Elmendorf, Fort Richard- son, Fort Greely, Eielson A.F.B., Fort Wainwright, Clear, and Nome. There is also a large on-campus evening study program. Mrs. Laura E. Jones, University Registrar, helps Col. Jesse D. Willoughby prepare his study program. 56 MfUJARY LIEUTENANT COLONEL RICHARD BEYER University of South Dakota ' 44, B.A. CAPTAIN JAMES COCHRAN III University of Florida ' 50, B.S. 57 QOZNCB MASTER SERGEANT EVERAD HORTON Coach of the Champion University of Alaska Rifle Teams MASTER SERGEANT EDMUND CRITES FIRST SERGEANT DELBERT YOCUM " t ■ " M! t OF ECOMC urcs AND GOVERN UENT The present can best be understood when there is a firm understanding of the past. The political, economic, and governmental dramas which now hold modern civilization on the brink of upheaval have been enacted many times before; for history, it is said, is cyclical. Is the United States following the path of decline of the ancient Romans, bringing an era of power and influence to a slow-dying end ? Are the internal rebellions of Red China against Soviet Russia enough to begin the final stages of world war? Before the answers can be reached, the questions must be fully understood. The College of Business, Economics, and Government trains today ' s young citizens to understand to- day ' s questions, so that tomorrow ' s problems might better be solved. 59 D£AN W4N£JEN££N 60 ECONO UfC£ PROFESSOR HANS JENSON Copenhagen School of Economics and Business, ' 49, B.S.C.

With man ' s increasing understanding, the unanswer- able questions are being resolved. Field researcher, laboratory technician, and academic theorist work united, probing the unknown. The great industries of our day watch with in- terest the vital sciences of geology, mining, and metallurgy, hoping that new sources for the valuable products of evolution will be located and conserved, that future generations may be served better than in the past. 66 V££N SARL BkfSTUNk VGAN: COUX££ OP SAR7W COBNCBC AND UINERAL NCUQfeX 67 ££OLO SV i I $P j Wt ' w I ' il Mkklwi PROFESSOR TROY PEWE Augustana College, ' 40, A.B.

Meade. These two individuals saw that the 67 hour week was sprinkled with the music, news programs and reviews which mirror KUAC ' s div- ersity. They were helped intermittently with their task but the main burden was theirs. KUAC-FM is the state of Alaska ' s first educational FM station. It is owned and operated by the University of Alaska on an assigned broadcast frequency of 109.4 megacycles. KUAC began broadcasting last fall and continues to operate during the summer on a seven day, sixty-seven hour week. The Speech and Drama Department, in coordination with the Electrical Engineering Depart- ment, see that the radio station stays on the air. JOSEPH MEADE— Program Director J. ALLAN MacKINNON COURSE OF MATHEMATICS PMVSfCAL SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING- In May, 1963, Astronaut Gordon Cooper made sixteen 90-minute orbits around the Earth and landed again 22 1,000,000 of a second younger than if he had remained at home. Ein- stein ' s theory of Relativity predicts an incredible 3,000 year trip in only fifty-five years. But traveling at the speed of light, would there not be a possibility of moving in space and aging none at all? Might it be possible so surpass the speed of light and become younger? Could modern man someday return to the Dark Ages? Or what of the Future? Is there a Fourth Dimension? New concepts of time and space and matter have revitalized the vast expanding fields of Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, and all phases of Engineering. The problems and laws of Nature as they fall within the grasp of man ' s groping mind seem increasingly complex, yet, paradoxically, more ordered and systematized. Progress is being made every day; man is growing as his mother planet shrinks beneath him. The College of Math, Physical Sciences and En- gineering, realizing the expanding scope of science, is preparing itself to match the challenge. 71 VGAN: COW£G 0EM£JUWmC£,PU CALQaWC£Q AND BN NWZIN 72 Hi CWE UfSfEY PROFESSOR WILLIAM WILSON— Head, Chemistry Department Brown University, ' 31, Sc.B.; ' 34, Sc.M.; Yale University, ' 36, Ph.D. ELAINE JACOBSON University of Alaska, B.S., ' 57; ' 62, M.S. % PROFESSOR NORMAN BIRKHOLZ Montana State College, ' 54, B.S.

Doug, Alice, and all of the Universal Services employees provide the students with good service and assistance. Janitors work days and nights in order to keep the buildings on campus clean and orderly. Universal Services also helps out by hiring stu- dent help to work in the kitchens and as janitors in the buildings on campus.

He suggested that a Southeastern Alaskan be commissioned to carve a totem pole for the campus to demonstrate the role of that area in the development of the campus. 184 " The University Alumni Association commissioned Amos Wallace to carve the pole and he began working May 20. He tackled a pole of yellow cedar which was donated to the University by the Alaska Lumber and Pulp Company of Sitka. The 54-foot pole was shipped to Fairbanks free of charge by the Alaska Steamship Company and the Alaska Railroad. " The pole is based on a model carved between 1850- 1900 during the peak of the totem pole carving period. The small pole was carved as a model for a larger one, but the larger one was never finished. The pole com- bines eight figures— four large ones and four small ones. From top to bottom, the figures are: a raven, a frog, the giant cannibal, a frog, the mosquito, a frog, a bear, and a wolf.

Work for the book usually begins way before the school year begins and continues into the summer. The layout and photographic ideas must be blended stylistically to form some overall mood and tone. The Patsy Eastland — La) out Stuff DkNAL David Gilbert — Head Photographe yearbook, though, is always handicapped by not having enough staff members. One year it ' s not enough photo- graphers and the next time you need artists. The prob- lems are endless and always require action. The continuous integration of photographic staff, layout staff, and art staff provides the action necessary for completing the book. We have forged ahead, lagged behind and managed to finish the book, but now it must be judged by those for whom it was intended. V ARBOOfc Too many people judge both the yearbook and the newspaper too quickly, not knowing the prob- lems which each must face. These publications, just like any other organization, are living entities and not merely a finished product. The final product will be only as good as the staff that created it. Joe Meade — Spoils Editor The student reaction to the book, not just their response to seeing the completed book, but also their interest shown throughout the year helps also to influence the book. If there are interested students active enough to offer their help — whether it be as a photographer or coypwriter — then we have an interchange and action.

The assignment: The stu- dents were to write, produce and stage an original melo- drama. Nothing can stop me now. Luck is in my pocket ! With the aid of an ancient book, The Del Sarte System of Expression, the writers, directors, and actors began the experiment to recapture the long-for- gotten art of melodramatic gesture. Modern realism, the class discovered, had conditioned almost every natural response. Gone was the ' ham ' and the exaggerated powerful movement. So you have a wild tongue, do you. I ' ll cure you of that! I ' ll show you that a kiss trom me is a favor to you! 206 Exaggeration had to be resuscitated through Del Sarte ' s dramatic laws; for instance, the Law of Sequence — Ex- pression of Face Precedes Gesture, and Gesture Precedes Speech. Many such laws had to be mastered to make " Better Dead Than Wed " a success. Aha! I see that I have a chance to score you cad !

Well, you are the more to be pitied, lor you shall be the wife of a cruel fiend ! 208 I ' ll make lampstands of their maiden bones ! EEpimONll Each movement had to contain a meaning. The actors had to convey the meanings, and the audience had to pick them up. Those who were among the audiences will remember the perfor- mances: the villain cursed, the maiden screamed, the hero fell. The audience hissed, cried, and gasped. The hero arose, the audience cheered, until the villain was defeated and true love conquered all. And furthermore, Mary, you are free to marry whomever you wish. 209 COU-E££ P t DEP lKnUE kjr The University Fire Department is a respected bunch of guys living to- gether in the basement of Hess Hall.

This school year saw the end of the old University of Alaska gymnasium. It was a land- nark on the campus, being as old as the University itself. In 1935 the Alaska Agricultural Col- lege and School of Mines became the University of Alaska and the gymnasium was also com- pleted. It has served its usefulness and will be the new home of the University museum, a fine end- ing for this old building. There will be memories of it: the basketball court that wasn ' t even high school size, the ROTC drill periods, the Starvation Gulches, and the place to spend a cold, wintry Sunday after- noon to keep in shape. 224 . .

Cross-country and alpine skiers entered races throughout Alaska, in the Yukon Territory, the Pacific Northwest and Colorado — com- prising the University ' s most ex- tensive participation in competitive skiing to date. Training for the 1963 season officially got underway beneath the orange and yellow foliage on Sep- tember 20. Paced by the University ' s new ski coach, Jim Mahaffey, the trainees ran along the twisting cross-country trails — ranging from 2 to 12 miles. They also hiked up and down the nearby domes. Coach Mahaffey also introduced the squad to a varied program of soccer, cal- isthenics, tumbling, and gymnastics. Jim Mahaffey came north from Western State College, where he had been assistant coach and skier in four events as an undergraduate. He was an alternate on the I960 Olympic Biathalon Team. His skiing career started in Alaska when he joined the Elmendorf A.F.B. ski team in the early ' 50 ' s. Joe Abel — Downhill Entry The snow came appallingly late this year. Not until after Christmas did the snow fall " deep and crisp and even. " Disappointingly, only a very small, hard core of seven remained to undertake the com- petitive season. A giant slalom, the a slalom, followed by a cross-country race on the three suc- cessive weekends following semester break opened up the Interior Alaska racing season. The 15 kilometer cross-country, sanctioned as an Olympic qualification race, drew a field of 56 en- tries plus three entries for the Women ' s 10 kilo- meter race. Following the University of Alaska ' s Nat Goodhue, who took first place, was a field of entries from Fort Wainwright, Fort Richardson, East and West Anchorage High Schools, and the College area. Entering the Northwest Intercollegiate Championship at White Pass, Washington for the second year, the Alaskan skiers appeared to be moving up in the ranks of their rivals. Goodhue moved up from last year ' s tenth place to fifth in the cross-country event. Joe Abel placed 10th in a large field of well- seasoned racers in the downhill event. The next weekend found most of the Na nooks at the Anchorage Fur Rendezvous. Gail Bakken, the University ' s woman cross-country skier, crossed the finish line ahead of the Anchorage and Homer girls, but behind the Juneau girls. John Samuelson and Wayne Britton of the University dominated the Class B Men ' s cross-country race. Alpine skiers Joe Abel and John Mackown were rained out of two out of three of their events. Meanwhile, Nat Goodhue, along with other northerners from Old Crow, Yukon Territory, and the U.S. Army Biathalon unit at Fort Richardson, were competing individually in the North American Nordic Championships at Crested Butte, Colorado. In the 15 Kilometer race Goodhue trailed Ben Charlie of Old Crow by 7 seconds, good for a 7th place out of the 21 entered in Class B. The Sourdough Rendezvous lured four University skiers to White Pass, Yukon Territory. Joe Abel swept the Alpine races while Old Crow ' s men and women dominated the cross-country races. ■$■¥ ' " M $ Joe Sebastian was the University ' s sole entry in the North of the Range Army Biathalon (skiing and shoot- ing) race. A great opportunity ex- ists for the University if it combines its skiing and shooting talent for participation in this special event. Back on the College Hill, the scene was set for the University ' s annual Gold Nugget Ski Races. The cross-country races were high- lighted by the entry of three Biatha- lon skiers, two just back from the World Championship in Europe, plus the presence of seven Old Crow men and women, plus a field of about 20 elementary school children. Ben and Martha Charley of Old Crow, Y.T. Nat Goodhue roars in to finish. Gail Bakken, the University woman entry, broke her ski about one frustrating mile from the finish, after having taken the lead from one of the Old Crow woman entrants. The Biathalon skiers won the first two places in the men ' s race; the second place going to the man who had been America ' s number one cross country skier at the World Ski Championships last year. Goodhue caught two of the four Old Crow- skiers who had beaten him earlier in the season, and John Samuelson won in the Class B event. Herb Thomas, the third Biathalon skier, came out of the three-day, three-event ski meet with the Skimeister Trophy. He combined his sixth place in the cross-country with a second in the Down hill and a first in the Slalom to win the coveted com- bined title. The season came to a gradual and delightful close. Alpine enthusiasts shadowed the National Alpine Championship race courses on Mt. Alyeska. They watched the most hotly contested National Alpine Championship in U.S. history, and Alaska ' s first National Championship in any sport. 237 I ■ V ■ m 238 Cross-country skiers joined the Uni- versity Dog Mushers on an adventure that took them the 60 mile round trip to and from the Athabascan village of Minto for its Winter Carnival. Gail Bakken, thereby, became the first wo- man to make the trip on cross-country skis. Her determined pursuit of cross- country skiing earned her the Outstand- ing Cross-Country Skier award. John Samuelson ' s achievement in Alpine and Nordic skiing earned him the Outstanding Freshman Skier award. Soon after the May Day ski jaunt, the snows left the ground and the ski season became a memory. But an old epithet says . . . " Life moves along many paths, but the best tracks we remember are the ski tracks.

Coach Bill Dalatn ' s team scored a total of 115 goals and 70 assists for a total of IS 5 points. Ed Armstrong was the leader of the pack with 23 goals and 18 assists for 41 points. Terry McLain followed next with 15 goals and 11 as- sists for 26 points. Seven Nanook Hockey players racked up points in the double numbers. Be- hind Armstrong and McLean were Bill Armstrong with 23, George Tibbits with 23, Gordon Morris with 20, Siegfried Jokiel with 14 and Jim Erickson with 12. Terry McLean (is) makes one of his 15 £oaIs of the season. He combined this with 1 1 assists for a total of 26 points for the 244 Six Nanook Hockey Players scored more than three goals in one game. George Armstrong turned the trick three times to gain top honors in this accomplishment. Ed Armstrong, Terry McLean and Gordon Morris scored the magic number in two games, and George Tibbits and Burle Beard did it once. Because of good team work the Polar Bears retained the Amateur Hockey As- sociation Alaska State Championship, and won both the Dawson Ice Carnival Tournament and the Fairbanks Winter Carnival Tournament. 245 Gary Hadfield steals the puck from a Ft.

Every tournament that the Nanooks played in they won. The Bears traveled to Canada to play in the Dawson Ice Carnival Tournament which they won by defeating the Dawson All-Stars 3-2 and 3-2, and the Elsa team 9-1. The Nanooks then traveled back to Fairbanks for the Fair- banks Winter Carnival Tournament. They defeated Ft. Wainwright twice, 7-3 and 10-4, to win the top honors. Then came the State Amateur Championship play offs at the University rink. The Bears defeated Ft. Wainwright again, 15-7, the Fairbanks team 16-2, and a very strong Elmendorf AFB team 7-0, thus retaining the championship for the second year.

He shot a fantastic 79. 7% from the foul line. Jonathan Spring- er was next in line with 608 points and co-captain Bill Waterson was third with 313 points even though he was out a good part of the season with injuries. Springer was the high rebounder with 484 and Sperner was a close second with 453. Four Nanooks took honors for the highest number of points for one game. Sperner scored 36 in one game, Marcus Jackson was second with 30 points, and both Springer and Bob Mays scored 29 points, one short for the Varsity " 30 " Club. Twelve Nanooks did better than 50% at the free throw line with five over 60%. Those over 60 ' , were Sperner, Waterson, Mays, Jackson, and Dennis Lattery. The others were Springer, Bob Stanton, Thad- deus Dumas, Roger Grummett, Joe Poor, Doug Car- ney, and Erling Nelson. In overall statistics the Nanooks scored 1,272 field goals, attempted 1,034 and made 629 for a total of 3,173 points. They fouled 913 times and controlled 2,013 rebounds. The Bears averaged 75.5 points a game and their opponents 71.2 points. 253 XiiiT, r i Bob Stanton takes a rebound in the North Dakota game. The Polar Bears had a so-so season that was marked with injuries and illness. The season started off with the Bears winning nine of their first eleven games. Then sick leave and a strong University of North Dakota team left the Nanooks with four straight losses. The Bears managed to end the season with a .750 league win average and a .571 overall win average. This was the first year in Alaska basketball history that three college teams played in the state. The University of North Dakota toured in December, and St. Martins and the University of British Columbia were here in March. This year ' s schedule also included a Polar Bear tour of Washington, Oregon, and California. Prob- ably the most exciting game of the year was played during this tour. The Polar Bears played the University of California at Santa Barbara, one of the top West Coast small college teams. The game was evenly played and neither the Bears nor UCSB could gain a very sub- stantial lead. The Bears made the last basket, which, if it counted, would have given them the game by one point. However, the scorekeeper ruled that the shot was made after the buzzer and therefore it did not count. Franz Sperner grabs one of the 453 rebounds he caught for the Bears. ■ l M HMi A tired Alumni player appears to use Franz Sperner as a resting post during the season ' s first game.

" Mike Barnes and Bill Bettis were named to the tournament ' s first team all-stars, Bob Hanson was named to the second team all-stars and Jeff David Jr. received honorable mention, which was a fine climax to a good season by a team that worked very hard together to make it one. The University of Alaska freshmen started the basketball season slowly winning three of their first fifteen games and finishing fourth in the " Farthest North League " standings. Four of the freshmen ' s five starters were hampered with injuries throughout their first twenty games. The frosh entered the end of the season in good health; determined to prove that thev had a much better team than their record showed at the time. The frosh did in fine style winning ten of their last sixteen games. And behind the defense of Tom Bennett, playmak- ing of Jeff David Jr. and fine all around play of Bill Bettis, Mike Barnes, Bob Hanson, plus a strong bench, the frosh finished runners-up in Bob Hanson (40) and Mike Barnes (35) fight for rebound. Tom Bennett (21) looks on. 259 For the first time in several years all of the Nanook Cheerleaders were females! The Cheerleading squad was increased from three to five and Coach Ordway used them as the third team. This year ' s squad, Joy Davolt, Gina Ashbacker, Jill Baggen, Brenda Cherry and Mary Jo Hammerstrom, had plenty of chances to perform, as the Nanooks played their longest season in the history of the school. They also traveled to Anchorage and Juneau for the University of North Dakota games played in those cities. These women were chosen in an ASUA assembly early in October from a field of twenty contestants. The vote for third place on the team was so close, that the ASUA legislative council decided to increase the team to five members. 260 GINA ASHBACKER BRENDA CHERRY MARY JO HAMMERSTROM JOY DAVOLT JILL BAGGEN -■» ■ ■ - I " IWSAWZALQ 262 U R££TUN£ A few brawny students of the University decided to start a wrestling team and began practicing in the gymnasium.

If the book does not meet the standards of quality, then the staff invites criticism and, most of all, wishes that more students would turn out to help produce the book.
