How to Purchase
... I graduated from Northwestern with a BS degree in June of 1941 and I set about looking for employment. ... I learned of a job opening with the (Frasier-Davis?) Construction Company, out of St. Louis, and they had a twelve-million-dollar contract to build a several-mile long segment of the Delaware Aqueduct, bringing water from ... [the] Catskills to the New York City system. ... It crossed under the Hudson River ... ran through Putnam County and then Westchester County, and so on. ... The stretch that they were going to do ... required three geologists for ... three, eight-hour shifts out of ... Carmel, in Putnam County, ... a small town there. They were digging the tunnel for the Aqueduct underground, as large as a subway tube ... and then, bringing the ... excavated rock in trucks to a crushing mill, where it was ...crushed ... to make aggregate. ... This was then mixed with cement to make concrete to line the Aqueduct tunnel ... for ten miles. They couldn't use all the stone. Some ... was flaky or might have cleavage and would split, and the lining could crack off. So, they ... needed geologists to stand at the crushing plant and make a quick inspection of the load in the large trucks ... and assess the load. ... If there was, in our judgment, too much unsuitable rock, we ... rejected it and they would have to take it ... away and dump it in the reservoir. ... The suitable rock ... was moved on to the crusher. ... They worked twenty-four hours a day. So, I and two people that I knew, ... young geologists from the New York area, worked at this. One had the day ... shift, one ... the swing shift, and I was the third to come on the job, so, I had the night shift, from midnight to eight AM. ... We boarded in a private home. They turned the ... living room ... into a little dorm, with cots. ... A number of people, engineers, construction [workers] lived there. ... Working the night shift I had to sleep most of the day; it was not easy, with traffic and the light. ... The job went on for a couple of months ... until the contract was completed. They kept me on longer than the other two. ... One went down to Washington, DC ... to work for the US Geological Survey. Incidentally, our salary at this construction job was forty dollars a week, which was great in 1941. ... The fellow in Washington, D.C. was established after a few weeks and ... said, "Come on down. They're hiring people. You ought to be qualified. ... You have a bachelor's degree, with a geology major, and the Survey would hire you. ... If you come down in the morning, I'll take you to work and ... you can be interviewed." ... So, I finished there in New York; ... took the night train ... arriving in Washington early in the morning. ... When I made my way to where he lived ... I wasn't too happy to see so many guys crowded into one room. I don't think they had one drawer for each [man] ... forget about closet space, and they were standing ... in line ... to use the bathroom, each holding his towel and soap and ... toothbrush. That was Washington, DC! ... Lots of people were coming in, because, while we were not yet in the war, we were already gearing up, helping the Allies and so on. ... So, I went, was interviewed and they ... offered me a starting position. ... It was at the first ... the lowest professional rank. ... The salary would be ... twenty-eight dollars a week. ... I ... thought, "Twenty-eight dollars a week, and I have ... living expenses and I am several thousand dollars in debt from my undergraduate college." I had to borrow money to finish college because even my part-time jobs weren't sufficient. I ... concluded that I could not afford to work there. I ... had to clear my debts ... first, and then, I could take the luxury of a job like this. So, all things considered ... I decided this would not be the best move for me. I went back to Chicago ... to look ... for something that would permit me to earn ... more. ... I inquired at the Labor Department offices ... where they ... advised people ... of the needs for all kinds of workers. ... They were beginning to build ships and munitions and other ... defense needs. ... They told me, "We need shipbuilders desperately. The industry has just about been extinct since World War I. We haven't ... been building any. People don't know how to [do it]. ... We're just beginning... and [there is] a desperate shortage. ... The government is now ... starting programs to teach people shipbuilding and shipfitting and ship lofting" (how to make the patterns for the ships and do the steelwork)." ... Also, the earnings were much better, [you could] work overtime, and so on. ... So, I decided ... to take ... a six-week course, which was given at ... Lane [Technical] High School, way at the ... western part of ... Chicago. I ... worked at a part-time job, morning into early afternoon, then ... went to school ... to take the course until ten at night; and ... hoped for a job. ... 2b1af7f3a8
