Biographical note:
Neil Risser Bassett was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1928. He received a B.S. in wildlife management from the University of Minnesota in 1949. He also received M.S. degrees in wildlife management from Utah State University (1951) and zoology (wildlife) from the University of California, Berkeley (1956). Bassett served in the U.S. Air Force medical section (1951-1955), and in the National Park Service as a park ranger and park naturalist for three years. He joined the Bureau of Land Management in 1959, serving as a realty specialist in the Los Angeles Land Office (1959-1960), and as a lands and minerals specialist in the Susanville (California) District Office (1960-1967). Bassett came to Anchorage, Alaska, in 1967. He worked in the Alaska Office of the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), first as Chief of the Lands Branch (1967-1970) and later as Chief of the Branch of Lands and Minerals (1972-1985) in the Resources Division. In this position, he acted as a coordinator for the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA), and was involved in all phases of its implementation. Bassett retired from the Bureau of Land Management in 1985. He married Dorothy Bills in Anchorage in 1974 and was active in the Masons from his induction in Covina, California in 1960, to his death in Anchorage in 1990.
