Alaska prospector William Veazey Pratt, 75, died March 13 at Alaska Regional Hospital. No local service was held.

Mr. Pratt was born July 29, 1917, in New York City. An only child, he entered the U.S. Army and retired as a staff sergeant E-6. He worked claims in the Summit Lake area and was taking classes in geology at the University of Alaska Anchorage at the time of his death. He had previously mined in Canada and had been in Anchorage for about six years. A friend said: "His love was the earth, mining and geology."

Mr. Pratt is survived by his cousins, Edward Robbins of Jefferson, Mass., and Marie Barlow of Yarmouth, Maine. Interment was in the family plot at Grove Cemetery in Belfast, Maine. Local arrangements were handled by Witzleben's Sixth Avenue Chapel.
