Memoirs of a Hayseed Physicist by Peter Martel

Part 39:
My First University:
Mobil’s question: “What would be your response to a rod man who wants to earn a promotion to surveyor?” My response was that I would do my best to help the chap learn about surveying and, if necessary, I might even help him with any homework that might be involved. I felt that the desire to improve one’s self should be encouraged. We never learned what Goetz’s answer was. In any case Goetz continued his studies in geophysics and eventually earned a Ph.D. from Columbia. He went on to work in a civil service job at the Dominion Observatory in Ottawa.
