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.

William A. Bowditch - has an extensive teaching and welding background. He has been a teacher, department head, and supervisor of special needs and vocational programs. In addition to his formal college training in preparation for teaching, Bill has taken several specialized courses in industry, such as the Hobart Welding School and American Welding Society courses. He is a member of the Association for Career and Technical Education and a life member of the American Welding Society. As a coauthor of Modern Welding, he has guided this Goodheart-Willcox book through many revisions to keep it up to date and technically correct in order to maintain its value as an authoritative welding text. He is also a coauthor of Welding Fundamentals.

Kevin E. Bowditch - is a welding engineer specialist for Subaru of Indiana Automotive Inc. His welding experience includes working for two automotive firms, two aerospace firms, a construction company (building nuclear plants), and a precision sheet metal firm. While working for one aerospace firm, Kevin designed resistance welding and soldering equipment, special equipment for custom applications, and worked to develop correct welding and soldering schedules for customers. He has a Bachelor's degree in welding engineering from The Ohio State University and has attended specialized conferences and courses sponsored by the American Welding Society, American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and American National Standards Institute. Kevin joined his father as a coauthor of Modern Welding, beginning with the 1984 edition, and has been a coauthor of Welding Fundamentals since its first edition was published in 1991.

Mark A. Bowditch - joined the Bowditch team of welding authors in 1998, when he co-authored Oxyfuel Gas Welding with his brother Kevin. He has more than ten years' experience as an educator, holds both bachelor's and master's degrees, and has taken classes at the Hobart Welding School and the University of Hawaii's HCC welding program. He is a co-author of Modern Welding and Welding Fundamentals with his brother and father.
