After three months the Minnesota project ended and I was offered a full-time position that was to begin in January in Nevada.
Shortly after the premier of our show America Unearthed in December of 2012, an internet “debunker” wrote a blog intimating that I was falsely claiming I had received an Honorary Master’s Degree in Geology in 1987.
The blog was cleverly written so as to not outright assert I was misrepresenting my qualifications, but it certainly did give readers the impression I was somehow claiming to be somebody I wasn’t.
In August of 1983, I completed my 6-week geology field camp classwork and was ready to begin my job search.
Charlie contacted me about interviewing for a position as a field geologist with a Mapco Minerals.
Due in part to Charlie’s recommendation I was hired.
