Through the middle months of 1985, it took a real effort for George Thomson to convince friends and associates, on campus and off, that he was not retiring. He was merely moving down the hall, and in the process, relinquishing the reins of the Forestry Department to Dr. Steve Jungst. As will be evident, however, his move to a more modest office was not indicative of the direction or magnitude of the shift in George Thomson's role on the Iowa State University Campus.
