I practiced journalism in Alaska for nearly 30 years, starting my junior year at East Anchorage High School as a prep sports writer for the Anchorage Daily News. After graduating from college in 1972 I went to work there full-time.

Here are some speeches, book chapters and newspaper series that highlight some of that work.


Farewell, Alaska (my valedictory remarks at the Alaska State Historical Society in Juneau in the fall of 1995)
Next Chapter (I contributed a chapter for Mike Doogan’s book Our North)
A People In Peril (winner of the 1989 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, the finest journalism I have ever been involved with)
Alaska Teamsters (winner of the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, Alaska’s first Pulitzer)
Behind 959 (the story about how we wrote the Teamsters series)
