Prominent Alaskan Remembered

Rosemarie Alexander, KTOO – Juneau

George Rogers is often remembered as a big thinker, for his contributions to Alaska statehood, his economic studies, a quick wit and sense of humor.

He was a scholar, an author and professor.  He served on numerous local and statewide boards and commissions, including the Alaska Permanent Fund.

Rogers died Sunday at his Juneau home. He was 93 years old.

He spoke with reporters many times at member station KTOO.  And this remembrance from Rosemarie Alexander includes some of those interviews.
