Building Enduring Roads


Like several of the guests of this Summer Sessions series, Doug Goering has a multifaceted connection to the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Doug’s father taught marine sciences here and Doug attended UAF as an undergraduate before receiving two bachelors of science degrees from the University of Washington, one in mechanical engineering the other in physics. While an undergraduate at UAF he also worked as a research and administrative assistant.

Doug returned to UAF for his master’s in mechanical engineering focusing on Arctic heat transfer; before earning a doctorate in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. Doug also worked here as a research and teaching assistant.

In a remarkably long career, Doug taught here as Assistant, Associate and Full professor and served as interim and full dean of the College of Engineering and Mines from 2006, until this year, when he retired.

And reviewer Frank Soos looks at Sherwood Anderson’s Winesburg, Ohio. The book celebrates its centennial this year.
