Bush pilot : early Alaska aviator Harold Gillam, SR., lucky or legend? by Arnold A Griese( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Harold Gillam Sr's story is presented with new clarity and balance. Bush Pilot describes a private, introspective man torn between family responsibilities and his unrelenting drive to pursue his goals in aviation. Early Alaska aviation did not rely on the actions of one single pilot but succeeded through the shared strength and will of many. Yet Gillam made significant contributions. The facts and details surrounding Gillam's adventures and some times "edge of the seat" flights keep readers involved from the first page through the controversy overshadowing his final tragic flight. Bush Pilot is an Alaska aviation adventure. Bush Pilot offers thought-provoking insights into Alaska's aviation history, and introduced me to its courageous and colorful pilots and other interesting characters -- many of whom had once been only names in the news during my growing up years here in the Interior. Val Scullion: Alaska grown. Bush Pilot is a well-researched account of an Alaska Pioneer aviator whose natural instincts and high degree of self-confidence help explain his success in off-airport operation and weather and instrument flying. Tom Hetherington: lifelong Alaskan, private pilot, and Alaska aviation history aficionado. In a book appealing to novice and experienced aviation buffs alike, Arnold Griese has brought new light to the life and legend of Harold Gillam. Full of new details about the famed Alaska bush pilot, Bush Pilot serves to demystify the events in Gillam's life while providing an excellent account of the early days in Alaska aviation history.

Reading Improvement at the College Level by Arnold A Griese( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The question whether or not reading instruction should be included in the college curriculum was examined. Although 75 percent of the institutions of higher learning provide some type of reading instruction, the position of college reading instruction is uncertain. The reading course has no body of principles which can be taught and expanded upon. The required course work is under the auspices of many departments--psychology, english, education, educational psychology, personnel services, etc. the historical rationale for the failure of english teachers to assume responsibility for the college reading program is discussed. It is suggested that the english profession conduct an extensive study of the nature of the reading process and its historical development. This paper was presented at the national council of teachers of english conference (honolulu, november 23-25, 1967). (jm)

Special Problems of Reading Comprehension in the Education of Eskimo and Indian Children by Arnold A Griese( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The paper endeavors to delineate more clearly the special reading comprehension problem of the Alaskan Eskimo and Indian. Reading comprehension is essentially a cognitive process -- the ability to engage in rigorous abstract thinking. A number of formal anthropological reports indicate that Alaskan natives, especially the Eskimo, are deficient in the ability to do abstract thinking. The anthropological perspective, however, also indicates that Alaskan natives were directed toward concrete problem solving before any significant acculturation took place. Their harsh environment allowed no leisure class to arise -- an essential requirement for the evolution of a written language. Under such circumstances, a cultural pattern evolved which focused on less sophisticated aspects of thinking and made it difficult for the child of that culture to succeed in a Western educational system which emphasizes the interpretatn of language symbols, especially in reading. The problem is one of moving the pupil who experiences reading difficulty because his mental responses involve concrete problem situations, to making these responses when confronted with more abstract situations. Two suggestions are given to overcome this: (1) the development of culturally oriented reading material which would also enhance the Native student's self-image; and (2) the use of inquiry with the stories read by the pupil or read to him by the teacher, I.E., a followup procedure using questions, discussions, and related activities.
