Iowa State’s 1981 Cy’s Favorite Alum (shhhhhh…) Attended the University of Iowa


Click on résumé to magnify detail.

In a previous post I included my father’s (Deane Gunderson) 1940 résumé. Under his sub-heading of education, my father included that he had attended one summer session/program at the University of Iowa. This newspaper article (below) tells about that session specifically geared toward high school seniors and the study of physics. By putting a few clues together, I believe this June 13, 1935, article is from a Rolfe Arrow.

Other than this particular summer session, my father’s collegiate studies were at Iowa State College. From there he received two engineering degrees: a B.S. in Agricultural Engineering in 1939, and a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 1940.

    Well, there are many ways I find myself being a “chip off Daddy’s block,” but physics is definitely NOT one of those!!!
