Congratulations Ron Inouye!

Our awesome board member, Ron Inouye received a Meritorious Service Award during the 101st Commencement at UAF, which recognizes service to the university or an Alaska community.

Ron has served the university for many years as both an employee and an advocate. His university career started in 1970 as an instructor at the Ketchikan Community College.

Prior to his 17 years at the Rasmuson Library’s Alaska and Polar Regions Collections, he also worked at the UAF Center for Northern Educational Research.

At the library, many of his years were dedicated to indexing Alaska’s periodicals. Today, the index is widely used by historians, researchers, and students. During his time there, he also served as the interviewer for numerous oral history recordings.

Ron Inouye is a philanthropist and volunteer for numerous university and community organizations, serving with the Friends of the University of Alaska Museum of the North and the Rasmuson Library’s Rare Book Endowment Committee.
