My connection with AGU began in 1939 following a regional seminar and meetings in Oklahoma City. The late Dr. Nelson Sayre sponsored my membership, just as I was embarking on a career in water resources investigation. Then, after about 4 years with the Texas Board of Water Engineers, I served 32 years with the U.S. Geological Survey in hydrological and geophysical studies in several states and at national headquarters as a staff scientist and administrator before retirement in 1973, after which I've done some consulting work. A long association with the growth and development of geophysics has allowed me to see the dynamic part AGU played in the growth and development.
