Taken aback by Alaska

May 3, 2009

I guess if the past year was any sign, I should have known not to forget our neighbors to the north. No, not Canada, our actual fellow citizens to the north.

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition Alaska. KTUU is reporting that The University of Alaska, Anchorage is the most recent recipient of an anonymous, scholarship based donation. Run by former Lt. Governor Fran Ullmer, the University of Alaska, Anchorage was never even in the running for my list. This is a lesson learned on Wikipedia research; Ullmer is listed under the categories of “Mayors of Juneau, Alaska”, “Members of the Alaska House of Representatives” and “Living people”, among others, but not the crucial “University President” category that I derived my own scorecard of women university presidents.

However, it does expand our donor’s reach further much further west than before. Nearly all of the other schools are east of the Mississippi.

    Don’t ignore Canada, though.
