Following his discharge from the army at Fort Russell, Wyo., he spent some months working for the Bell Telephone Co. in Wyoming.

      He has been with the Ohio Oil Co. in Casper for some years and in 1940 was appointed general superintendent of the Wyoming pipeline division. He served in this capacity until 1946 when he suffered a heart attack and asked to be relieved of some of his duties. He was then appointed assistant superintendent.
