    John was my graduate student at Oregon State, where he got his masters in agriculture technology. He wrote a profound thesis on drainage in the Willamette Valley. I will long remember his research and contribution to drainage in the Willamette Valley. We never did publish his thesis, because I took an assignment to Egypt shortly after he graduated
