Bibliographic information

Biographical/Historical note A graduate of Rice Institute with an MA from Harvard (1942) as well as a graduate of the U.S. Air Corps Flying School whose professional career was as Chief of the Anthropological Branch of the Aerospace Medical Division of Wright Patterson AFB, Ohio. As a violinist and as a hobby he had learned to repair violins and became interested in the work of the CAS through Hutchins' 1962 SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN article "The Physics of Violins," and started his own violin testing set up in 1963. As a result of this he conceived the idea of establishing a violin repair and research group at Antioch College. See correspondence here and the formal proposal in the Antioch College file (not funded).
