As far as I know, I'm the only History major working at Tektronix. I've worked in my minor field since graduation. Drafting, Computer Aided Drafting and Computer Aided Engineering have provided a career path from teaching drafting classes at Marysville High School to providing training and support in high tech. What happened to Industrial Arts at Humboldt? Did the Spurs and Intercollegiate Knights also vanish?

Cathryn Halvorson Rudolph, Psychology, 1980

January 20, 2011

Well, here we are in 2011. It has been 30 years since Dan and I attended Humboldt State when the Governor was Jerry Brown. This year we have a special treat of BOTH daughters attending HSU. Hollund graduating in May and Lauryl just starting last August. Both pursuing a science track. Both enjoying all that Humboldt has to offer. Lauryl has filled her need for Nordic speed with the new challenge of HSU Women's Crew. The commitment level so high but like the Junior Olympian that she is, she is meeting it full speed ahead. Hollund's graduation looms large and we discover that Jerry Brown will also be signing her diploma when she walks with her class in May. Funny how history repeats itself in such beautiful and unexpected ways.

Currently I am affiliated with Institute Analysis of Natural Resources (IARN), Universidad Atlántida Argentina in Mar del Plata, Argentina as a Research Scientist. I often work with Werner Flueck, a Swiss who graduated in 1982 from Humboldt with degrees in Wildlife Management and Zoology. We clandestinely eloped 3 months before our graduation so that Werner could receive his green card and then attend graduate school at University of California, Davis. Soon, our marriage will span 29 years. Over the last 20 years, we have worked together on studies related to conservation of the endangered native deer and impacts of exotic deer in Argentina and Chile. Last year we were the main organizers for the 7th International Deer Biology Congress, held in the Huilo Huilo Reserve, Chile, which was the first time the congress was held in Latin America.
