Gerhardt (Doc) Bohn, professor in Agricultural Engineering Technology, is shown here with two students. Nearest to Bohn is Mark Kimball, 1972. Kimball served as a technician in the Plant and Earth Science department and then as a UWRF safety officer until his retirement. Can you identify the other student on the far left?
Two faculty members as they appeared when students at River Falls in 1934.

He went on to live a long happy life, but was unable to return to his teaching career.
