Captain Lorin F. Woodcock, who has served since February 1941, and for the past 2 years as Associate Director for Geodesy and Photogrammetry, retired on September 1, 1968. His assignments have taken him to virtually every section of the country, and he sailed aboard six Coast and Geodetic Survey's ships. He was transferred to the Navy in July 1942, and before returning to the Coast and Geodetic Survey 4 years later served in the South Pacific aboard the PATHFINDER and HYDROGRAPHER, both Coast and Geodetic Survey's ships transferred to the Navy during the war. His last assignment at sea was on the PATHFINDER, which he commanded in 1965.

Captain Woodcock is a 1940 civil engineering graduate of the University of California in Berkeley, and holds a Masters Degree in photogrammetry from Cornell University. He is a member of a number of professional societies.

The Woodcock's were guests of honor at a party on August 22, 1968. They are moving to Oregon and will make their home there near Medford.
