Captain Marvin T. Paulson is retiring April 1, 1969, after more than 30 years of Federal service. He has been Chief of the WB Western Region's Administration and Technical Services Division since January 1966.

A native of North Dakota and a graduate of North Dakota State College, Captain Paulson was employed by the Coast and Geodetic Survey for 3 years before he entered the commissioned corps as a deck officer in 1941. He served aboard ships on the West Coast and in Alaska until being transferred to the Army in January 1945. He returned to the Coast and Geodetic Survey in 1948 after serving in the Philippines, and then headed large triangulation parties. He was on the Arctic Field Party in 1951. For the next several years, he was assigned to ship and field party duties, then came to Washington as assistant to the chief of the chart division, and was chief of that division in 1962-1963. He attended the Armed Forces Staff College in 1960. For 2 years, prior to going to Salt Lake, he was executive and commanding officer of the US Coast and Geodetic Survey Ship EXPLORER.

The Paulsons are moving to Las Vegas, Nevada to make their home.
