Bill & Ginny Retired
At the conclusion of the 2008 academic year, Ginny and I retired from our faculty positions at the University of Idaho.

We are now enjoying retirement and living in Bend, OR.  We did quite a bit of skiing at Mt. Bachelor this winter and are volunteers at the High Desert Museum.  If you've never visited the museum put it on your list as a "must do" the next time you're in town.  We do interpretive tours of the Spirt of the West exhibit which covers approximately 100 years of history and development in the High Desert.  I'm a bit surprised that this is one of the things that I really enjoy doing, since history was never something I enjoyed in school. 

With the arrival of warmer weather we expect to be hitting the hiking trails and enjoying the many great outdoor things that central Oregon has to offer.

Ginny and I were married in September 1965. Following our graduations from the University of Idaho (1967 & 1968) we moved to Clear Lake City, TX where I worked for General Electric Co supporting NASA's Apollo and Space Shuttle programs.  Cliff and Laura were born in Texas City, TX in 1968 and 1971 respectively.   In 1975 we transferred to San Jose, CA where I was involved in USAF satellite R & D programs. By 1980 we were tired of living in large metropolitan areas so the opportunity to return to Moscow was greeted with great anticipation.   I've now completed my 24th year with the University of Idaho as a professor in the Computer Science Dept.  We've had two opportunities for sabattical leaves.  The first one allowed us to spend a year in Menlo Park, CA where I worked for Varian Medical System, and the second was spent working for Hewlett-Packard in Boise.

We enjoy the outdoors and use our free time each summer to visit our favorite places in Kauai, Yosemite, Glacier, Zion, and Arches National Parks.  During the winter months we try to spend time on the ski slopes, especially at Brundage Mountain in McCall.
