       RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) _ Former South Dakota School of Mines and Technology president Harvey Fraser has died.
 
       The Rapid City school says Fraser died Sunday at the age of 97. Funeral arrangements are pending.
 
       Fraser became the school's first dean of engineering in July 1965. He was named president the next year and served until 1975.
