The Ted Stevens Papers Project announces a new exhibit in the Senator Ted Stevens Gallery of the Elmer E. Rasmuson Library, University of Alaska Fairbanks! Curated by Northern Studies graduate student Susannah Dowds, Recognition, Honors and Gratitude for a Senator: An “Award-Winning” Exhibit, opens December 6, 2012 with a gallery talk and reception at 6:30 PM.
Based on numerous plaques and awards received by Senator Stevens over the years, Susannah has created an eye-catching exhibit that is fun, as well as educational. The items displayed demonstrate the numerous groups and organizations Stevens worked with and represented during his congressional career, and the breadth of issues involved in a senator’s work. The exhibit highlights the local connections between Stevens and his Alaskan constituents.
