In Search of Captain Warner by Patricia Barry
ANCHR has reprinted In Search of Captain Warner originally authored by Patricia Barry. It chronicles the life of Captain William Warner, whose name graces the Warner Mountains and many other locations in Northeastern California. It is reprinted with much new material by Philip Warner, a cousin of Captain Warner. Philip's writings on finding Captain Warner take up where Patricia Barry left off. He greatly expands our knowledge with the additional intrigue of his
genealogy explorations and historical discoveries. Philip contacted ANCHR early in his explorations, and we have been following his endeavors ever since. For several years Phil worked with Barbara Mahler and with Tom Kuykendahl, who scanned all of the original typed master's thesis. Phil completed his project working with Jim Jessee who edited this
The original author, Patricia Barry, lived in or near Alturas, California, and has since passed on.
In 1934, Philip Warner was born to high school teacher parents in Rochester, New York, raised in the small farming town of Webster, New York (before Xerox moved in), and graduated with honors from Webster Central High School. He accepted a scholarship from Oberlin College, but in 1953 he chose to enlist in the Army. In 1955, he was appointed to the United States Military Academy's Prep School at Stewart Air Force Base in Newburgh, New York. There he received a "competitor, regular" appointment to West Point and entered in July, 1956. Upon fulfilling his three-year Army enlistment, he resigned from The Corps to accept an appointment by Rochester Products Division to the General Motors Institute (now Kettering University, Flint, Michigan.) In 1960, he graduated with a BIE/Production Management degree and served Rochester Products Division in the field of "factory computer-operations" for 30 years. He retired in 1987 at age 53.
In 1964, he married Liv Glenne of Drammen, Norway, his wife of 48 years. Since 1971, Phil and Liv have traveled more than 450,000 miles by VW Camper and Winnebago motor homes to "almost everywhere" in the United States and Canada. Their search for Captain Warner is told here.
