  • Notes 
    • “Edgar graduated from Temple High School and immediately enrolled at Texas A&M. He was a member of the Corps of Cadets and the ROTC, thereby securing a commission in the Army upon graduation in 1948. World War II had ended so he was never assigned to active duty. He married Jean immediately after graduation and became employed in an oil field equipment concern first in Houston and later in Oklahoma City. Although Edgar had a degree in mechanical engineering, he became an expert in metallurgical engineering, particularly in welding, which he pursued energetically for the balance of his career. While in Oklahoma he received patents on a new welding process known as friction welding. In 1963 the family moved back to Houston where he was involved in a US Government scientific research program, Project Mohole, aimed at drilling the world’s deepest exploration well to the mantle of the earth. unfortunately his project was canceled because of budget problems during the Vietnam War. He then transferred to Exxon Production Research Laboratory where for 20 years he continued to develop technology for offshore platforms and pipelines. The most notable was the Alyeska Pipeline, which was controversial. The construction took almost ten years and was considered to be the achievement of the decade of the ‘70s. Edgar retired from Exxon in 1986 after a serious illness, but soon began his own consulting company. In 1994 he was appointed to chair a committee to prepare an international pipeline welding code, having to travel to Europe, therefore, enjoying a mini-vacation at times.”
