Jan. 6, 2022 — Frank Baker — 50 years of Alaska outdoor adventures through the seasons: nature’s and his own

Author, photographer, and outdoorsman Frank Baker will begin his presentation with a 10-minute slide show of the four seasons. He will follow with a discussion of how his outdoor adventures paralleled those season while dealing with age-related health issues, injuries, and other challenges. Frank will describe his motivations to write and photograph these adventures and what living and working in Alaska for three-fourths of century has meant to him.

A resident of Eagle River, Frank arrived in Seward from Pennsylvania in 1946. He received a B.A. degree in Journalism from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 1974. Soon after that he began a career as a writer in Alaska’s oil industry that spanned more than 40 years.

Following his retirement in 2015, Frank contributed articles and opinion columns to publications and websites both inside and outside Alaska. He has published three books of poetry. Frank also produced a weekly radio program on Anchorage’s KLEF 98.1 FM radio station from 2002 to 2007.
