Good faith addition, wrong place[edit]

An anonymous editor made the following contrib, but unref'd and in the Notes section:

"Before his interest began in meteortics, Harvey Nininger was a professor at McPherson College in Kansas teaching biology but he also taught a course in geology. When Nininger first started taking college courses after high school, his teachers didn't think he would make the grade. After several months, in college he soon was at the head of his class in science and had the admiration of the faculty. Sortly after graduation he was offer a job as professor when another department head moved on. Although he wasn't sure he should take the postion, he proved to be an excellent educator and teacher.Items about his biology work can be found in the Published papers of Nininger."

By memory, this is mostly right, but needs cites and editing. I'll sort through this sometime, unless someone else does it first. --Pete Tillman (talk) 15:26, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
