JUNEAU – Scott Carrlee, longtime Curator of Statewide Services for the Department of Education and Early Development’s Alaska State Museums has retired.  Carrlee came to the Alaska State Museums in 2000, from a distinguished career at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.  He spent five years as State Conservator and moved into the position of Curator of Statewide Services in 2006.  During his more than ten years in this position, Carrlee assisted museums from every region around the state.  He created an internship program that provides valuable assistance to Alaska museums during the summer months. 

Carrlee was an integral member of the team that designed and built the new Father Andrew P. Kashevaroff State Library Archives and Museum building in Juneau.  Most recently, Carrlee’s Statewide Services Program was integral in the Alaska State Museums’ award of the National Medal for Museum Services, the highest award for museums in the nation. 

Addison Field, the museums’ Chief Curator, said, “Scott had a long and distinguished career at the Alaska State Museum. He spent many years helping museums from Metlakatla to Utqiaġvik find and build on their strengths.  Alaska museums are stronger because of the work he did.”

Carrlee’s retirement was effective February 28, 2018.
