Dates of existence



Philip G. Haddock was born in San Diego, California, in 1913. He completed his B.S. in forestry (1934) and Ph.D. in plant physiology (1942) at the University of California, Berkeley. After graduation, Haddock enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Force, where he served until 1945. He then assumed his first teaching position at the New York State College of Forestry. In 1946, he returned to the west coast to become Assistant Professor of Silviculture at the College of Forestry, University of Washington. While there, he aided in developing plans and operations in the commercial thinning of Douglas firs. He also became interested in Douglas Fir's provenance and assisted Stan Gessel in his first fertilization plots. Haddock remained at the University of Washington until 1953, when he joined the Faculty of Forestry at UBC to work in silviculture. Throughout his career, Haddock has strived to infuse science into the art of silviculture. He is also an ardent conservationist. Although he retired from UBC in 1978, Haddock remained active. In 1982, he coordinated and taught a resource management course offered at Simon Fraser University.
