Q. Sid would like to know who was the first governor of Alaska?
A. William Allen Egan, a democrat, served as our first governor, from 1959 to 1966. He was popular enough that after two others succeeded him, he came back into office for the 1970-74 term. If you would like to see a list of all our governors, please check the archives as someone else asked for the complete list. Take care, -BJ
