MR. ALASKA: BOB BARTLETT GOES TO WASHINGTON tells the story of one man’s political, professional and personal journey from the streets of a gritty gold-rush town to the halls of the U.S. Senate.

Edward Lewis “Bob” Bartlett represented Alaska in Washington D.C. for more than two decades, first as Alaska’s Territorial Delegate to Congress and later as the state’s first Senator.

Bartlett’s most exclusive distinction: he helped create the very state he served.
