InfoJohn Butrovich was an Alaskan whose life and work has been linked inseparably to the political and economic history of Alaska. He served in the Alaska Legislature for three decades. During this time, he helped shape an underdeveloped and impoverished territory into a viable state. His many accomplishments as a political leader have earned him high honors in the state and a reputation as a politician of strong ability, great dignity and utmost integrity.

Born in 1910 in a mining camp north of Fairbanks, raised in Fairbanks, educated on a basketball scholarship at Washington State University, John Butrovich returned to work in Fairbanks, began selling insurance and soon bought the agency, but in politics he made his mark. He was elected to the Alaska State Senate in 1978. During his years as a senator, he was at the forefront of the movement to gain statehood and pivotal in the development and maturation of the state. He served on every committee of the senate and presided as president of the senate from 1967 to 1968.

Butrovich's political leadership was characterized by his committment to the goal of creating a better life for all Alaskans. The respect and esteem of the many to whom he listened and for whom he spoke during his long and active political life have been bestowed upon him on countless occasions. Upon his retirement from the state legislature in 1948, he was elected an honorary member of the House of Representatives. In 1980, he was named Alaskan of the Year and awarded an honorary degree by the University of Alaska.
