Steve Ulvi and Lynette Roberts

Born in Walnut Creek, California in 1951 and educated at the University of Oregon, Steve Ulvi came to Alaska in 1974 with his brother, Dana, and homesteaded on the Yukon River near Eagle. He married Lynette Roberts and they moved to Fairbanks when their children became of school age. Steve became a subsistence specialist for Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve and Gates of the Arctic National Park. He was interviewed for the Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve Project Jukebox because of his experience living a subsistence lifestyle on the river, and participated in the Gates of the Arctic Project Jukebox as an interviewer.
