A wonderful note in his own words from the Harvard alumni website: "I entered the Boston of Sce of Westinghouse, Church, Kerr & Co., in the fall of 1902 and was transferred to their New York office in 1904. I was made assistant to the vice-president in 1912, and left the company in 1914, and then spent a year each in northern Idaho and Colorado, where I operated a railroad and quarry property in which I was interested. I became secretary-treasurer of the S. E. Junkins Co., Ltd., in 1916, and since then have been engaged in engineering and construction work throughout western Canada, mostly for railroad clients. While in New York I became interested in the Big Brother Movement, serving as a director, and in the Harvard Engineering Society, also serving as a director. My principal hobby (or vice) is golf. Have traveled in most of the United States and in Mexico, Canada and the West Indies. War Service: Was at work on railroad construction in Canada for Canadian Pacific Railway at Vancouver and elsewhere, in connection with trans-Pacific and trans-Atlantic shipments of food and supplies. Publications: Various articles on engineering matters for the technical magazines. Member: Harvard Club of New York; Harvard Engineering Society; Southwood Golf Club, Ltd., Winnipeg. -Roger Conant Barnard"
