He wrote about life in the 1940’s and 1950’s in the first few chapters of his childhood and young adulthood in Lancaster before the failure of the larger companies in Lancaster (as in “The Glass House.”). His Memoirs: “Anecdotes of a Lifetime: Memoirs of a Professional Geologist,” is now available in hardback, paperback, and soon in Kindle E-Book covering 17 Chapters, hundreds of footnotes of hyperlinks, many photographs, and an Index of principal characters and special topics of discussion.
His stated objective was to provide a record for his children, their children and grandchildren beyond of a Grandpa of the past, of his life, of his family and friends and associates during the mid-late 20th Century well into the 21st Century and what is it was like as a professional geologist who traveled the U.S. and the world in search of the natural resources needed by America to prosper in a country that has been recently side-tracked into strained political (and personal) relationships creating a serious threat to the American Democracy and to the stability of many American families.
