In 2014, HB217 was signed into law by the 28th Alaska State Legislature, 2nd session, “an act establishing November 14 each year as Dr. Walter Soboleff Day”. In his 2011 obituary his son Ross wrote, “It is his work with people that is his legacy”. Dr. Soboleff spent his life working with people with the goal of higher education, self-respect, spiritual values, and tolerance and equality. Through the month of November, the Juneau-Douglas City Museum will provide complimentary note cards and US postage to anyone who chooses to stop by and write a personal note of encouragement to someone in their lives. As Dr. Soboleff once said, “When you give, feel good about it”. November admission to the Museum is free In Celebration of Dr. Walter Soboleff Day.
