Vic Fischer talked about his new autobiography and signed copies October 30 in the UAA Consortium Library, at an event attended by about 200 people. The book, written with Charles Wohlforth, traces Fischer’s life from his early days in Germany and Russia to his decades in Alaska, where he was a delegate to the Alaska Constitutional Convention, a member of both the territorial and state senates, and the first director of ISER. Today he is a director emeritus at ISER and continues to study state and local government policy and Alaska-Russia issues.
The book was published by University of Alaska Press.
The event was sponsored by the UAA, ISER, and UA Press.
