Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Maurice Lee "Maury" "Quickshot" Albertson (August 30, 1918 - January 11, 2009), PhD, civil engineer, a teacher of water resources management over a long career (starting in 1947) at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado and former head of the Colorado State University Research Foundation. He was born and grew up in Hays, Kansas. There he learned from his father about helping others in a rural environment and living a life based on the Sermon on the Mount. Having witnessed economic hardship at the time of the Great Depression and seeing the effect of prolonged drought, he was inspired to focus on water resources. Albertson eventually headed all research projects at CSU. He received a B.S. degree from Iowa State University, Ames, earned M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanics and hydraulics from The University of Iowa, and received a D.Phys.Sc. degree from the University of Grenoble in France. His first wife, Dolly (Myrtle Marie Campbell originally of Waterloo, IA), died in 1976. His second wife, Audrey Faulkner, who survived him, is co-author on some of his publications. Albertson has been credited with changing the face of U.S. volunteerism.show more
