Collection summary: Program and video recordings of a symposium entitled, “After the Land-Use Commission, What?”

Organizational history:
As the joint federal-state Land Use Planning Commission for Alaska implemented the provisions of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971, a debate developed over the coordination and matching of government management systems for land usage. The Southcentral Alaska Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration sponsored a symposium, entitled “After the Land-Use Commission, What?,” in an attempt to establish a dialogue on setting up a coordinated management system between federal, state, and local government, and private landowners. Four functional areas were chosen for discussion: watersheds, fish and game, recreation, and natural resources. The symposium was supported in part by the Alaska Humanities Forum and the University of Alaska, Anchorage. It was held in the Anchorage Higher Education Consortium Library on February 18-20, 1974.

Collection description:
This collection consists of the symposium program and twelve videocassette recordings of the proceedings. The discussion panels were: Watershed Management, Fish and Game Management, Recreation Management, Natural Resource Management, Relating Use Philosophies to Management, and Legal Barriers to Cooperative Management. The guest luncheon and dinner speakers were Alaska Lieutenant Governor Henry A. Boucher, Dr. Robert W. Hiatt, President of the University of Alaska; Emil Notti, President of the Alaska Native Foundation; and Philip Rutledge, President of the American Society for Public Administration.
