Gifford Knapp's influence
Later on Gifford became my first boss. I worked for him for a dozen years as an operator of just one of his Cat bulldozers. We built hundreds of miles of terraces, constructed many ponds and cleared out acres of timber with those Cats all over southern Iowa and Northern Missouri.
Yes Gifford Knapp did all those things and more. His ability to think 'out of the box' made the man 'one of a kind' and a shining star of the Christian faith!
