Chris L. Kleinke Library Fund

This book was purchased in memory of Chris Kleinke on behalf of the Chris L. Kleinke Library Fund

This fund is made possible by Katharine M. Kleinke in memory of her late brother, Dr. Chris L. Kleinke. A well-known Anchorage psychology professor, Dr. Chris L. Kleinke received his doctorate in psychology from Claremont College and went on to teach clinical psychology at Wellesley, Wheaton and Boston Colleges. Dr. Chris L. Kleinke taught at the University of Alaska Anchorage from 1985 until he retired in 1998. He passed away on February 22, 1999. Many of his published psychology textbooks and articles have been translated into several foreign languages and are now used by students across the globe. "Like a beacon of light he goes before us to show us the way on a road we have not yet traveled" - Kleinke Family. This endowment will support purchases for all collections, with a preference in the field of psychology.
