His stated objective was to provide a record for his children, their children and grandchildren beyond on 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. He and his wife, Mary, raised a family of 5 children, all now with one or more college degrees, and have been married for some 45 years.
