MacArthur 'Genius Grant' awarded to Alutiiq Museum director

The 2007 MacArthur Foundation Fellowships were announced today. The awards — which include a five-year grant totaling $500,000 — are sometimes referred to as “Genius Grants.” This year they were handed out to 24 individuals from a broad range of fields. Among the recipients is Sven Haakanson, executive director of Kodiak’s Alutiiq Museum.
