Fairbanks Tall Timbers Lecture: Barbara Lando


The Fairbanks Tall Timber series honors those who have served the Fairbanks community well. Join veteran newsman Robert Hannon as he interviews Barbara Lando.

Barbara Lando was born in New Jersey and earned a Ph.D. in Mathematics at Rutgers University. She came to Alaska in 1969 when she and her husband both accepted teaching positions at UAF. Barbara not only taught mathematics but was instrumental in starting the computer science program at UAF. She retired in 1990 as a UAF Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science, Emeritus. After retirement, she became the Alaska State Director for Elderhostel and became interested in promoting a lifelong learning program in Fairbanks. Barbara had the vision and was the driving force behind UAF's now-established Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI). Recently, she helped establish Aging at Home Fairbanks, a membership organization offering support for older adults to live independently and engaged in their community.
