Humanitarian and Engineer Jack Keller Remembered

Nov 21, 2013

Jack Keller and his wife, Sally.

Stored in the Fife Folklore Archives on the Utah State University campus are seven boxes containing information and oral history recordings from 39 members of Cache Community Connections.  Among those recordings are comments from long time Utah Public Radio friend and member Jack Keller who spoke about his years volunteering with the Northern Utah religious and civic community organization.

On Nov. 10, we received word of Jack's passing. Recognized as a humanitarian who traveled to third world countries finding ways to make water available for farmers, Jack was a founder of Keller- Bliesner Engineering. In 1980, Jack referred to his career as an irrigation engineer as a love affair.
