The period from 1819 to 1840 was characterized by corporate reorganization, a reorientation of settlement northward and inland, and regulation of foreign competition. Naval officers conducted a conservative administration. Profits from the colony also declined during that period. By 1833, the Russian-American Company had five administrative units known as counters and two districts with a population of 627 Russians, 991 Creoles (or individuals of mixed Native-Russian blood), and 9,120 Natives. New Archangel (Sitka), Kodiak, Unalaska, and Atka in Alaska, and Ross in California, comprised the five counters.

Victor Fischer was a delegate to the Alaska Constitutional Convention of 1955-56 and a territorial legislator. He taught at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks and Anchorage in the 1960s and 1970s, and from 1966 to 1976 directed the university's Institute of Social and Economic Research. During this period he published the study, Alaska's Constitutional Convention. Since 1980 he has been a member of the Alaska State Senate from Anchorage. Page viii Gerald McBeath, professor of political science at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, has published several studies on Alaska government and politics, including Dynamics of Alaska Native Self-Government (with Thomas Morehouse), Alaska's Rural Development (co-editor, with Peter Cornwall), and Alaska's Urban and Rural Governments (with Thomas Morehouse and Linda Leask).

Originally, this issue involved the relationship between Alaska and the federal government. After statehood, the issue shifted to the question ot the proper amount of power at the state level-how centralized should state government be? This question figured in several plans for decentralization of state services, as the new state agencies decided how to establish offices and deliver services over the far-flung regions of the state. The topic also figured in discussions about the role of local governments, which under the Alaska constitution are given significant powers and the authority to use them liberally.
