Biography

Gustav Bliesner (1910-1994) was an electrical engineer and an expert on rural electrification, sprinkler systems, and hydroelectric dams. He consulted on industrial and military projects, and on electrical systems for the United States space program.

Bliesner was born at Fairfield, Washington; he graduated from Rockford High School and attended Washington State College, where he earned his bachelor's degree in electrical engineering in 1933. In the following year he finished his Master of Science degree. In 1939 he received his professional engineering degree, and later became a Ph.D. candidate at Iowa State College. During his career as an engineer he taught at local universities, worked with the Army Corps of Engineers, Boeing, North American Aviation, and the Bonneville Power Administration. Mr. Bliesner was an expert in the field of rural electrification whose long and distinguished career included participation in projects such as the Grand Coulee Dam and the Boeing KC-135.

Collection Description

The collection is comprised of Gustav Bliesner's scrapbooks, journals, correspondence, professional documents, office files, along with a large quantity of miscellaneous collected material, primarily printed ephemera. Bliesner carefully and painstakingly documented his professional activities and accomplishments; his civic and social activities are also represented. The scrapbook volumes, which Bliesner called "My Life's Philosophy," constitute the bulk of the collection.

Collection Arrangement

The collection has been arranged in four series. The first and largest series is made up of scrapbooks that Bliesner titled "My Life's Philosophy." These scrapbooks are maintained in the order that Mr. Bliesner created them and follow a generally chronological sequence. Bliesner assigned volume numbers and titles to each scrapbook. The second series is a separate sequence of scrapbook volumes. These were accessioned at later dates but are also part of Bliesner's "My Life's Philosophy." The third series is Bliesner's office files, arranged in Bliesner's original decimal system. An index to these files is located in box 79. Series four is arranged by subject, and is sometimes only roughly sorted.
