Additionally, he belonged to the Archeological Society of Virginia for over 50 years. While a school teacher for 30 years, he simply loved the outdoors, namely hiking and looking at everything. As a graduate of Virginia Tech, he brought the scientific philosophy to the discovery and recording of ancient stone writings of Native Americans.
