Slim's Career

Slim had an interesting and somewhat unusual career. He was a school principal at age 21, and a superintendent of schools at 22. When he went to the University of Michigan, at age 47, he had completed twenty-five (25) years as a school superintendent. He then spent twenty-three (23) years at The University of Michigan, helping their graduates find jobs. His personal specialty was to work with public school boards, throughout Michigan and the Midwest, in selecting new school superintendents... something for which he had a unique background and talent.

Below is Slim's employment history, from his graduation at Western Michigan University in 1934, until his retirement in 1982...
