About the Author(s)

Andrew D. Althouse - received his engineering degree from the University of Michigan. He was the Assistant Director of the Vocational Education Department at Cass Technical High School in Detroit and later became the Supervisor of Vocational Education for Detroit. As a leader in the field, he and his coauthor Carl Turnquist created one of the first training programs in refrigeration while at Cass Technical High School. Andy, as he was known, created the first technical training course in refrigeration for industry. The instructional materials used in this first course became the foundation for the textbook Modern Electric and Gas Refrigeration, which was published in 1933. Mr. Althouse was a Member of the American Society of Refrigerating Engineers.

Carl H. Turnquist - earned his engineering degree from Wayne State University in Detroit and, along with Mr. Althouse, developed one of the earliest training programs to provide instruction for mechanical refrigeration for the automotive industry and for railroad passenger cars. With industry support, Carl's program flourished as the demand for skilled technicians in this new field expanded. The Modern Electric and Gas Refrigeration book was revised every three to five years as new equipment was developed. The title of the book was eventually changed to Modern Refrigeration and Air Conditioning. Mr. Turnquist was an Associate Member of the American Society of Refrigerating Engineers.

A.F. Bracciano - received a bachelor of science degree in Industrial Education with Certification in Vocational Education from Wayne State University in Michigan. He also earned a master's degree in Secondary Education and a Specialist degree in Administration and Supervision.

Mr. Bracciano was employed as a teacher of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning for twelve years. He then became Director of Career and Technical Education for Warren Consolidated Schools in Warren, Michigan. He taught Community Resources Workshops for Michigan State University and presented at conferences throughout the country.

Mr. Bracciano is a life member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES), Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE), and the American Technical Education Association (ATEA).

D.C. Bracciano - graduated from Oakland University in Rochester Hills, Michigan, with a bachelor of science degree in Mechanical Engineering. He began his career in HVACR at the Warren Schools Career Center, graduating in HVACR, and worked in the HVACR field performing air conditioning installations and domestic and commercial refrigeration, heating and air-conditioning service.

Dan has over twenty-five years of experience working in design development and manufacture of HVAC systems for General Motors, Mitsubishi Climate Control, and Alternative Energy Corporation. Dan is currently a Chief Product Engineer—HVAC for Chrysler LLC. He holds several patents in the field, including a patent for a Modular Hermetic HVAC system. Dan is a member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and is a member of the Interior Climate Control Steering Committee of the Mobile Air Conditioning Society (MACS).

G.M. Bracciano - received a bachelor's degree in Education, a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, and an education specialist degree in Administrative Leadership. She completed coursework in Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration through Oakland and Macomb Community Colleges.

Ms. Bracciano has worked in the field of education for over twenty-five years and has held positions as both university professor and administrator. Currently, she is the Provost of Gulliver Schools. Ms. Bracciano specializes in development and implementation of innovative curriculums and has presented at local, state, and national conferences. Ms. Bracciano is a member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning (ASHRAE), Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES), the American Technical Education Association (ATEA), and the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE).
