Journalist and historian Michael Carey will discuss Ted Stevens' early career in Fairbanks. Stevens became the district attorney for Fairbanks in 1953 and was a prominent law-enforcement figure until he joined the Interior Department in Washington in 1956.
In 1965, Ted needed help in his law office. I signed on.
I had no idea what I was getting into.
- Judge H. Russel Holland
Attorney Jack Roderick will give a more personal retrospective on Ted Stevens. They started practicing law together in Anchorage "just by chance." After a stint with the Peace Corps in India, Jack was asked to take over Stevens’ part of the practice when Stevens was appointed by Governor Hickel to the U.S. Senate.
