Petroleum Directory: Lounsbury and Associates establishes UAA scholarships

In May, Lounsbury and Associates announced the establishment of the Hewitt V. Lounsbury Scholarship benefitting engineering and geomatics majors at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Two scholarships will be awarded each semester to degree-seeking engineering and geomatics students. Plans are for the scholarship to become a self-perpetuating endowment.

Interested students should contact the financial aid office at the University of Alaska Anchorage for details.

Hewitt V. “Hoots” Lounsbury came to Alaska in May 1944 with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Hewitt was born in St. Paul, Minn. on Feb. 22, 1911 and passed away Jan. 8, 1971.

In 1946 he started a candy company called L&W Candies, later known as Brownie Bear Candies. He founded Hewitt V. Lounsbury and Associates in 1949.

Hewitt served on the Anchorage City Council and was Mayor from 1958-1959. He was also an active member of the Downtown Rotary and one of the founding members of the Alaska Society of Professional Land Surveyors.

Lounsbury and Associates is the oldest continuously operating surveying and engineering company in Alaska with 60 employees in Anchorage, Wasilla and Kuparuk.
