Mr. Alaska: Bob Bartlett Goes to Washington is the uplifting chronicle of one man's political, professional and personal journey from a gritty gold rush town in Alaska to the U.S. Senate. With his horn-rimmed spectacles and awkward speech, Edward Lewis “Bob” Bartlett was an unlikely hero. Yet Bartlett became Alaska's champion in Washington, serving for fourteen years as the state's Territorial Delegate to Congress and another eight as senior Senator for the state of Alaska. His years in the U.S. Congress between 1945 and 1968 left a legacy matched by few. Bob Bartlett authored or co-authored more than 900 bills with a remarkably high rate of passage, a record of legislative success that alone qualifies him for honor. But Bartlett's more exclusive distinction is one few members of Congress can claim-his greatest success was the very creation of the State he represented. Some 40 years after his death, interviews and a wealth of archival footage reveal a humble man who never forgot the people he represented, despite becoming the consummate Washington insider.
