William Anderson (PhD '63)

I retired after 35 years of teaching Engineering at The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. My wife Betty and I are well and celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary this year. We spend the each winter in Palo Alto to be near our son/daughter-in-law and 4 granddaughters. We stay in Ann Arbor the rest of the year. I'm doing a lot of wood turning (on a lathe) and playing a lot of golf and volleyball. My favorite charity is working with a poor region in Russia, in combination with the Russian Orthodox Church. My college ROTC training led to a 3 year commitment to the Air Force, which I spent doing research at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio in 1962-1965.
