S. Fish and Wildlife Service as a Contaminant Specialist at the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center in Laurel, Maryland.  He moved in 1982 to the Ecological Services Field Office in Clear Lake.  His major duties included evaluation of Hazardous Waste Sites, Pesticide Applications, Petroleum Product Manufacturing and Oil or Hazardous Material Spills, as these related to fish and wildlife health.  He coordinated the Abnormal Frog Survey for the Fish and Wildlife Service in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Arizona, before retiring in 2007.
