Dave is a retired petroleum exploration geologist and is presently an international travel consultant (20+ years). History of the West is now his avocation.

His interest in History of the West began with an inspiring history professor at the University of Wisconsin.  Shortly after, he became a field geologist in western Wyoming with the opportunity to travel many historic trails by jeep.  His geology career took him away from Casper.  However, during that time, he did have the amazing opportunity to study the history of two different Indian tribes: the Blackfeet of northern Montana and the Navajo of the Four Corners region.  This came about as an expert witness in mineral development on lawsuits on behalf of the tribes before the U.S. Indian Claims Commission.

He returned to Casper two years ago and has embraced the opportunity to learn about the "History of the West" with an extensive reading program and by visiting museums.  His activity with the "Reading the West" book club, a partnership of the Natrona Co. Library and Fort Caspar, has also been quite rewarding.  He also has an interest in the 19th Century art of the American West and has had the opportunity to visit most of the major museums housing those collections.

In addition, he has rekindled his interest in geology.  Field trips with geologists from Casper College and the Tate Geological Museum take him out into "Historical Wyoming", and that always results in further study.
