Senator Stevens served as Chairman on the Civil Service and Post Office Committee for many years and was a true friend to all of Alaska and Postmasters and Civil Service workers of the entire country. We can attribute better working conditions, more modern post offices in many towns and cities across the nation and better pay and benefits to this fine gentleman. Locally, he and Representative Don Young were instrumental in securing funding for the new post offices at Ketchikan and Ward Cove. Senator Stevens also took keen interest in and attended many NAPUS conventions.
Through the years we enjoyed many occasions together, both professionally and as family friends. He was a sincere and honest fellow Alaskan and former Hoosier. I convey my heartfelt and deepest sympathy to his family.
Alice R. Brusich, Postmaster
