Ray H. Stevens, longtime Juneau banker and businessman, died August 13 at the age of 96. Born in Iowa, he made his home in Livingston, Montana for a time and then came to Juneau in 1913. He first was associated with his brother-in-law, Ed C. Russell, owner and editor of one of the city's early newspapers, the Daily Alaska Dispatch, forerunner of the Alaska Weekly. Shortly thereafter he accepted a position with the First National Bank, where he remained for 20 years.

In 1933 Mr. Stevens and his wife, Jessie, opened a ladies apparel shop, Stevens of Juneau, in which he continued to take an active part until the time of his passing. He was one of the founders of the Alaska Federal Savings and Loan Association, and was a member of its board of directors, as well as secretary, at the time of his death. [Oct1967]
