Carl Brodersen has many vivid memories of his grandma, Betty Clauson. After all, they were almost all each other had in the way of family before Clauson passed away Aug. 27 at the age of 93.
But, going through boxes upon boxes of his grandmother’s correspondence after her death has painted a new picture for 29-year-old Brodersen, he said. One that shows a life outside of the Pelican library and school, where she touched so many lives for 30 years. One that preceded her time in Alaska, even, where she moved as a newlywed in 1945.
