I was born on 28 July 1930 in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. My father, Friederich Frances Kiemle, was born 22 August 1905 in Karlsruhe, Germany and emigrated to Indianapolis, USA in 1923. He was sponsored by my step uncle Friedrich Kiemle born 29 November 1864 who emigrated to the US I believe from Tiefenbronn. My mother, Dorothy (Houston) Kiemle was born 23 September 1903 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I went to Iowa State (College) University, Ames, Iowa 1948-1951, Forestry, minor in fish and wildlife and the University of Washington 1951-1953; 1957-1959, Bachelor of Science Fisheries; Bachelor of Science Biology & Science Education. I also attended Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon 1967-1968, Master of Biology & Science Education and Edmonds Community College 1980-1987, Associate Degree, Ornamental Horticulture.
I worked for the US Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine, Kremmling, Colorado in 1950 and the Oregon Fish Commission, Clackamas, Oregon, 1951. From 1952 to 1960 I was with the Washington Department of Fisheries, Aberdeen and Seattle, Washington. I was a Secondary Schools Science teacher & Science Department chairperson, Seattle Public Schools, 1959-1989. And I worked at Molbaks Plant Nursery responsible for Greenhouse Operations in 1987. Since 2000, I am enjoying retirement with my family of 3 children and 8 grandchildren. I also enjoy my church, music, writing my life story, walking and multi-cartilage exercise. I can no longer do gardening or salt & fresh water fishing. But life is good! My wife Ruth & I celebrated our 50 years of marriage, 1955-2005 with all our children & grandchildren here in Seattle.
