Personal information

currently, a starving librettist
Roger Edwards is a long time OLA member, who is a retired microbiologist for the Portland Water Bureau. In addition to overseeing the analyses for bacteria, algae, and zooplankton at the Bureau's Water Quality lab, he also was paid to wander about in the Bull Run watershed, where he collected water samples from the streams, lakes, and reservoirs there. He is a Portland native who graduated from the University of Portland, and then did enough practical biology to earn a master's degree from Northeastern University in Boston. “New England was an interesting place to visit, but I don't regret coming back to the Pacific Northwest.” He enjoys being in OLA if for no other reason that the excuse it gives him for trips to the many lakes here.
