I graduated from OSU in zoology/wildlife biology and married (Donna, 1967) NDEA Title IV fellowship to grad school, Univ. Montana, Missoula, MT two daughters and Ph.D. in microbiology/wildlife biology Asst. Prof. and Chair of Biology, Pacific Univ., Oregon Asst. Director, Craighead Wildlife/Wildlands Institute (CWWI), Missoula Adjunct Prof., Univ. Montana Director, CME and Medical Staff Liaison, St. Patrick Hospital (SPH), Missoula Manager, Microbiology Diagnostics Lab, SPH Director, CWWI Divorce (1996, 29 years) Director, Quality Assurance, and Chief Science Officer, Bioscience Laboratories, Bozeman, and married (Marilyn, 1998) retired 2012 Wordsmith Scientific and Regulatory, LLC, consulting in the antimicrobial/disinfectant industry.
So, there you have it … the bare-bones history of my post-grad life. But, my greatest accomplishments are my two daughters, who, in turn, provided us with the four granddaughters in Merceuil, France (oldest daughter, Jacqueline, married a Frenchman) and two grandsons in Portland, OR (daughter Katherine). My stepson, who also lives in Portland, enjoys his carefree life as a bachelor, at least until he stumbles into the right girl. All three kids were allowed to travel their own journeys, needing our “help” rarely and provided advice only if requested. Happily, all turned out to be stable, good people. Marilyn and I share a quiet, fun life in Bozeman, a very unique place, and feel ourselves very fortunate to spend this stage in our lives in Montana, “the last, best place.”
