Alaska's Constitutional Convention

by Fischer, Victor



In 1956, delegates gathered at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks to write a constitution for what became the forty-ninth state of the union. They produced a document that many have said was more distinctly appropriate to its time and place than any other state constitution.

Victor Fischer, one of the delegates, describes this historic event. Celebrate the constitution's fiftieth anniversary and learn about the writing of this important document.
