    Letters of Gratitude in Honor of Dr. Walter Soboleff the Month of November 2021

    During the month of November, drop by the City Museum for a free notecard, a free postage stamp, and an insert honoring the late Dr. Walter Soboleff to use for mailing letters of gratitude and encouragement to someone in your life.
    In 2014, HB217 was signed into law by the 28th Alaska State Legislature, 2nd session, “an act establishing November 14 each year as Dr. Walter Soboleff Day”. Walter Alexander Soboleff (November 14, 1908 – May 22, 2011) was an influential member of the Juneau community and throughout the state of Alaska. Of Tlingit and Russian-German descent, he contributed to many organizations, including serving in all of the offices at Grand Camp ANB, participating in the Juneau Lions Club, teaching Native Cultural Studies at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, serving in the AK National Guard, and his lifetime avocation as Presbyterian pastor for the Juneau Memorial Church and as a traveling preacher. He spent his life working with people, with the goal of higher education, self-respect, spiritual values, tolerance, and equality.
    Those who knew him remember his frequent handwritten notes and cards. Through this simple act of recognition and caring, Juneau-Douglas City Museum invites you to send someone a note of encouragement in his honor. As Dr. Soboleff once said, “When you give, feel good about it.”
