Who, who were the people that you were working with on these projects and, and what kind of products came from this kind of research?
Well, as to who we were working with, Harold Mitchell was the division chief and the project under which I worked was headed up by, initially, Maxin Y. Pillow and after he retired, Harold Gus Wahlgren took over as the project leader, and so I worked directly with them. And there was, there was a, a pretty good crew of people that worked. Doctor Larry Lassen was part of that group and we had a number of students that first year um people like Kent McDonald and Dave Lewis, came to work here and Marshal Brunden and there was a technician Arnie Okkonen who was working with us. We traveled all over the West, all summer long getting these samples and.
Did you enjoy your work?
Oh it was wonderful, wonderful. Yes, we got to see, well I traveled in every state in the West except, for Alaska and Hawaii. But all the, the lower forty-eight states, the western states we worked in. And I, I said did this for about ten years, was an extensive project and you are asking what kind of product came out of it? It was mainly statistical reports for the industry so they could determine what kinds of strength wood came from which areas of the country.
