BUD UZES (1934-2006)
Bud Uzes passed away quite unexpectedly on February 7, 2006. His family and friends will miss him dearly. The picture above shows my dad with one of his favorite instruments - a Burt Solar Compass with a clamp on telescope, made by Gurley. This picture appears in Chaining The Land (1st Edition), and gives a taste of my dad's wit. (Scholarship Fund Information)
The Bud Uzes Surveying Collection
My dad loved the history of surveying. He collected surveying related instruments, books, maps and related artifacts for 40 years. He collected these items with incredible passion and zeal, and his collection reflected the love and energy he devoted to it. My dad's collection included almost 500 instruments/tools/artifacts, over 1500 books, and countless maps and other related items. Following Bud's wishes, the family sold his surveying collection.
Here are links to my dad's INSTRUMENT and BOOK collections, which were sold in APRIL 2006:
