Now Soils ).uildina May 19, 1934 Mr. Earl W. Tinker Regional Forester Federal Building Mil-wakes, liseonsin Dear Tinkert Unless you have already completed your pute mt force, I hve jnst aero0s a man whom I think you mey want to consider. His ness is Philip Allan and he is at present doin game mt work for t Coon Talley project. He took a zoologial. course at the University of New Hipehire and has partially completed a Ph.D. thesis on the s8 of New Hapshir , workin uMsr Professor Dies of Michiga. I have Just bee working with him a week at Coon Yalley and hrve a very hig opinion of his personality, bai. e and enthusiasm. If I had any opening, I wuld snap him - for either res.arch or administrative work. He has at present only a formn's position at Coon Valley, but I hav reason to believe that they will offer him a technical opening as soon as one occurs. Probably after this occurs he wuld not be available. His main difficalty from your standpoint would probably be his lack of formal forestry traini, but I found him entirely able to comprehd fortetry questions and If anythind more o intelligent about thma than the aver trained forester, Allan prefers m ent vol. in connection with m as rather than birds, and hie first Interest would be deer. I gather that he has had oonsiderable contact with deer both in New Hmpshire and Michigan I do not Inw wether he has civil Serice status, but if not he oould in btedly pass som appropriate Civil Service examination, I have aged him to send me a de3cription of his cpliftcations, *hiih I will forward to you as soon as it arrives. Meanhtile I thou4*t I had better send you this letter at once, since you migt be making u your slate. Allan uld like at sme tim in the future to complete his Ph.D. An administrative ausg ent under you in the Lake States would of course automatically give him a familiarity with deer which he could later caitalise by taing a year off for thesis purposes. W ith best regrds, Yours sincerely, In Chrge, GameORsearc AI/Yh
