I’m in the running again for the Board of Directors for the Society for Industrial Archeology (SIA).
I’m not very good at writing these, but this is what I’ll submit:
Seth Price became active with the Society for Industrial Archeology in 2007. He has been a student volunteer at the 2010 and 2011 SIA Conferences, and attended several other conferences and fall tours. He also reviewed a book on explosives for the SIA Journal, which was published in 2011. He served on the board as an interim position last year.
His interest in industrial archeology began through watching trains and finding ghost towns in the New Mexico desert.
Professionally, Seth holds a BS in Materials Science and Engineering from Virginia Tech (2005), an MS in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering from New Mexico Tech (2010) and a BS in Broadcast and Operational Meteorology from Mississippi State (2016). He works as an instructor/laboratory associate in the Chemical Engineering Department at New Mexico Tech, as well as a tutor in Magdalena Municipal Schools, and St. Mary’s Catholic School in Belen. He also does curriculum development consulting, and has developed several online engineering classes for various institutions.
Seth is also a licensed amateur radio operator (N3MRA), runs a small storm chasing tour business, tinkers with cars and electronics, and shoots competitively. He maintains a number of blogs, including https://westernghosttowns.wordpress.com which discusses SIA-related topics.
