Page 448 ROBERTSON/EASTAUGH Paragraph 2 - omitted from .Statehood & the Constitutional Convention. Add: At the 1955 constitutional convention, Delegate R. E. .Bob. Robertson approved of statehood but wanted Juneau named the capital in the body of the constitution, not just in the schedule of transitional measures. (In 1962, the Alaska Supreme Court held that because the state capital reference was only a transitional measure, the capital could be changed by statute or initiative.) Bob also believed that the initiative process the Constitution proposed was too easy to implement, and because initiatives can.t be easily corrected, bad law could result. He also opposed a provision submitting an ordinance to the voters on whether to abolish fish traps. Arguing unsuccessfully to change the three items, Bob submitted a letter of resignation to convention President William Egan three days before the convention concluded and returned to Juneau. Believing the resignation wouldn.t be effective unless all of the delegates accepted it, Egan did not distribute copies of the letter. The convention concluded without Bob Robertson.s vote. In 1960, Bob was persuaded to sign the constitution, which he did happily, finally making it a unanimous vote.
