(Russian: Высокопреосвященный Андрей Петрович Кашеваров)

was an Alaskan-born priest of the Russian Orthodox Church. He was of Russian and Native Alaskan heritage, and both his father and grandfather had served as missionary priests. He served the Church - as teacher, choir director, inspector, deacon, and priest - for over 60 years in many locales throughout Alaska . He was also the first librarian and curator of the Alaska Historical Museum and Library when it relocated to Juneau in 1919. During his tenure there, he collected thousands of items for the museum, providing an insight into Alaskan history of incalculable significance. In 2015, the state of Alaska honored Fr. Andrew Kashevaroff by naming its new State Libraries, Archives and Museum Building after him. This building was officially opened on June 6, 2016.
