Those regulations do not require all apprentice candidates to have a high school diploma; an apprenticeship program may decide for itself whether its admission criteria mandate a diploma. There are more than 90 electrical apprenticeship sponsors in Alaska, not three as stated in Fagan's column.
Thursday's Compass article, "Railroad titans' heroic work left lasting mark on Alaska," on Page A-13 appeared with a historic photo that was labeled Michael J. Heney. The photo was in fact of Wilfred Hoggatt, governor of Alaska in 1907.
