ANCHORAGE (AP) Alaska flags were lowered at all state offices Thursday in memory of Alaska Constutional Convention editor Nadine Price, who died last week.
Flags will remain at half staff Friday in honor of Price and throughout the weekend in memory of Athabascan leader Ralph Perdue, who died Tuesday.
Price, who died April 24, edited more than 4,000 pages of transcripts from the official record of the Alaska Constitutional Convention. The work was done between 1962 and 1964 while Price worked for the Legislative Affairs Agency.
Perdue was the former president of the Tanana Chiefs Conference. He had been battling cancer complicated by pneumonia.
Perdue initiated and was one of the founders of the Fairbanks Native Association in the early 1960s.
Perdue also served on Gov. Walter Hickel's Federal and State Land Use Commission, the Communication Commission, the Fairbanks North Star Assembly and the Fairbanks North Star Borough School Board.
