I worked in a Studebaker dealership Nickerson's Shell Service, from 1960 to 1964.  It was a small store in Truman, Minnesota that sold a lot of cars for it's size. The town dump wouldn't take whole cars so my job one winter was to cut old Studebakers (1950 1951 vintage) into pieces small enough they would fit onto a pickup and be accepted at the dump.  If you ever wanted to find a ton of old Studebaker parts the Truman, MN dump (about four miles west of town) might be the place to look.  I imagine the groves and sheds of farms in the area would also be productive. 

From Studebakers in Truman I moved on to Quaking Aspen near Santa Fe, NM. Graduate school was a lot of fun and I learned a few things too.  I found out the Russians own a third of the worlds trees, including lots of aspen.  I set out to accumulated all the publications on aspen, many of which were printed in Russian. This was pre internet times though and sending postcards to Russia got old.  It also wasn't possible to get copies of everything.  That was probably just as well, because the reality is much of the writing was pretty worthless. 

Time marches on and my dissertation on Mineral cycling in aspen sat on the shelf at the University of New Mexico library.  I doubt if anyone besides my committee ever read it.  However, quaking aspen ( Populus tremuloides ) is still an interesting plant and ecosystem.  The orange aspen foliage in the fall is the best fall color New Mexico has. I have decided to publish my Quaking aspen research on the internet and see if anyone will find and read it there.
