during the summer, remember
w-a-a-y back when we never had full
summers?) Upon graduating he ac-
cepted a position as Mining Engi-
neer for Oliver Iron Mining Co. in
Chisholm, Minn. He continued in
this position until 1909, at which
time he gained some underground
experience as a miner. (You should
see the pictures of those under-
ground days, which he has in his
office.) In the fall of 1909 he came
back to his home state as mining
engineer for the Vinegar Hill Zinc
Co. at Platteville, holding that title
until 1911, when the position of
mining mill superintendent was be-
stowed upon him.
  In the meantime, however, he
came back to Madison during the
summer of 1910 to get married.
There are now two young Shoreys,
Mary, at present a Lieutenant in
the U. S. Army Medical Corps, and
Edwin Robert, also in the service as
a Captain in the Infantry.
  The young Shoreys aren't the
only soldiers in the family, however,
because their father left his job at
Platteville in 1918 to serve as a 1st
Lieutenant in the U. S. Army Corps
of Engineers during the first world
war. After the war he aga n re-
turned to the mines, this time as
operating engineer for the Oliver
Iron Mining Co. at Shullsburg, Wis-
consin. The call of his Alma Mazer
soon caused him to leave that posi-
tion in the fall of that year and he
came to the U. of W. as assistant
professor of Mining and Metallur-
gy. In 1927 he acquired the title
of associate professor and ten years
later was promoted to that of full
professor, which title he holds to-
day.
  Besides his teaching duties Prof.
Shorey has carried on extensive re-
search here at the University on the
concentration of zinc, lead and
fluorspar ores as well as work on
consulting practice, and examina-
tion and evaluation, test mill opera-
tions in the U. S. and Canada. At
the present time he and Prof. Bar-
ker are consulting engineers for a
mine in the southwest part of the
state. (That's the part of the state
which I call home.)
  He holds membership in the
A.I.M.M.E., the Professional Engi-
neers' Society of Wisconsin, and
the Society for the Promotion of
Engineering Education as well as
Triangle engineering fraternity.
  When it comes to hobbies he is
a great camera fan. He has quite a
collection of outstanding photo-
graphs and any time you amateur
photographers want some tips I ad-
vise you to stop in and see Prof.
Shorey.
