I had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with Frank when I was appointed to succeed him as Director of the School of Renewable Natural Resources in Sept. of 1987. He was a big help to me as I took on that assignment. We also had many discussions of our respective government careers. I had been with the USDA for 34 years prior to my assignment with the SRNR. Frank had an outstanding professional career & made many fine contributions in the field of natural resources. I valued his friendship.
