He was employed by The Kansas Power and Light Company, International Harvester Company, and Continental Oil Company prior to entering the Federal Civil Service. A veteran of World War II, he served on active and reserve duty in The United States Air Force retiring as a Colonel from the Air Force Reserve staff in the Pentagon, Washington, D.C. An inveterate traveler and amateur historian, he had visited most of the national parks, revolutionary war and civil war sites, and frontier forts and battlefields, and all the state capitols.
