adn.com | life : Change at the museum helm: Farewell: "During her 33 years at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center, Wolf launched visionary projects with the energy of a tennis ball machine. Her most recent lob is the museum's ongoing $116 million expansion. In her 20 years as CEO, the museum budget has tripled from $2.4 million to $7.8 million and the permanent collection has doubled to 24,000 objects and 500,000 historic photographs. Yet Wolf, 66, remains the rare executive who has been seen climbing ladders and sweeping floors in her high heels. 'She worked harder than any of the rest of us. She had more energy than any of the rest of us,' said Walter Van Horn, the museum's curator of collections and Wolf's colleague since 1977. 'She was totally dedicated to the idea of this museum, that this museum could have an important impact on people's lives.' Today is Wolf's last day on the job."
