Having been involved in the fabulous hobby for over 25 years now, I have had the very nice experience of meeting a lot of new people and making friends with many.

I have been involved at the National level since 1975, and feel very proud to have been a part of getting the organization on sound footing. I have also helped in the establishment of over 20 new branches during this time. We just recently formed two new branches: Branch 36 in Washington and Branch 37 in Arkansas.

My background is this: I was born and raised here in Oregon and have a farming background. Went to school here in Salem and attended Oregon State University. Served in the U.S. Air Force as an aircraft loadmaster. I was a professional fire fighter with the Salem Fire Department for 10 years. I was co-owner of Salem Tire Service for 21 years and presently own an antique store and specialize in farm and antique toys.

I have served as National President (with the exception of one year) since 1978; prior to that I was Vice President for two years.

With 37 branches, from the East Coast to the West Coast, we now have a membership in excess of 6000. Our goal is to promote the hobby of old iron, restore and preserve a part of the past for our followers to enjoy and carry the hobby forward.
