I never met Mr. Hostrop in person, but spoke to him on the phone several times. His signature is on both of my U.S. Mineral Surveyor appointments.

Rest in Piece Mr. Hostrop

Berny was the new Chief, Division of Cadastral Survey, W. O. BLM and hired me in 1974.

Obviously, we had many memorable times together until the early 90's when retirement came around.

Rest in Peace, Berny!

Seen many survey & resurvey plats signed by him from the time when they were all issued out of Washington. If I remember right, he was a Wyomingite.
