Mary Ann Borchert
Mary Ann Borchert is a trained biologist who came to Fairbanks, Alaska in 1971 to run the electron microscope lab at the Institute of Arctic Biology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. After about a year, the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) took over the funding and operation of the lab and Mary Ann became an employee of the Geophysical Institute until her retirement in 1986. Mary Ann has remained an active volunteer in the Fairbanks community, at one point even serving as Interim Assistant Director of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UAF. In 2000, she participated in the afternoon storytelling session at the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and shared some of her memories of working there.
