He was also a member of the Pennsylvania National Guard rising to the rank of Lieutenant. He was offered and accepted a position in the mathematics department at Dickinson College where he became a full professor and taught in that position for 32 years. During his academic career he published numerous articles in journals of mathematics in the United States and around the world.
Upon retiring, he spent many summers at his cabin in the woods of Michaux Forest. He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed fishing, hunting and golfing.
