FAIRBANKS- Monday would have been former U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens' 90th birthday.

The University of Alaska Fairbanks will commemorate the date with a public event at Rasmuson Library. It also will be streamed live on the Interest at stevens.library.uaf.edu.
Stevens, a Republican, served for 40 years in the Senate. He was revered for bringing federal dollars to the state.
A jury convicted Stevens on Oct. 27, 2008, of seven felony counts of lying on Senate financial disclosure documents, and he lost to U.S. Mark Begich, D-Alaska, eight days later. The conviction was dismissed in April 2009 because of prosecutorial misconduct. Stevens died in a plane crash on Aug. 9, 2010.
