Pauline Fredrickson was born in Cordova, Alaska, in 1929 and relocated as a child first to Chichagof Island and then to Sitka, where she has remained to raise her family, and lead us all with her wise, generous spirit. She dropped by Raven Radio to record a tribute to the station called Build on the Good, which you can listen to here. On her way out she insisted on a photo-op with KCAW News Director Robert Woolsey, her next-door neighbor for 27 years!

During her recording session, Pauline offered many thoughts and observations about her nearly-85 years as an Alaskan, which we will share from time to time on our airwaves and on our Facebook page.
