James Kish (B.S. 1969 Advisor: William R. Webber)


I've had an interesting career in astro-physics at the U of Minnesota and the U of New Hampshire.

My advisor was William R. Webber. I've been blessed with two children, a daughter who lives in Santa Rosa, CA and a son who lives in Austin, TX. I have two wonderful grandchildren, ages 13 and 12. Also, I had a computer business in NH for many years. Working for Dr. Webber for many years allowed me to travel to remote parts of the world, flying large balloons for research in cosmic ray astronomy. I am now retired and living in Las Vegas.
