AHB. Charles (Deake) Dake Jr.
Charles was born on March 26, 1763 to parents Charles Deake Sr. and Anna Gould Deake in Hopkinton, Kings Co., R.I. He moved with his parents to White Creek, Washington Co., N.Y. He was only fourteen at the time the Revolutionary War started but served in the New York Militia. He served in the class of Ebenezer Allen and Capt. William Brown's class in Col. John Blairs's Regiment and in Van Woert's Regiment. In 1789 he married Abigail Waite Sherman in Washington Co., N.Y. (She was born on Nov. 19, 1773 at White Creek, Albany (Washington) Co., N.Y. and died on Feb. 2, 1861 at Greenfield, Saratoga Co., N.Y. She was the daughter of Caleb and Mary Sherman. Mary Sherman was the daughter of Rev. William Waite). He was listed in the 1790 Federal Census of Ballstown, Albany Co., NY. He was a member of Baptist Church of Christ, Providence, Saratoga Co., NY in 1793 and lived in North Galway. They moved with his parents to Greenfield, Saratoga Co., N.Y. He built a school in Daketown on the corner of his farm and taught in the school in the winters. The Second Baptst Church of Greenfield was founded in 1794 at Daketown. Charles was listed as a Deacon of the Second Baptist Church at Daketown, N.Y. In April 7, 1795 he was a town officer on the Commission of Highways for Greenfield Center. (The first town was formed March 12, 1793, the first town meeting was held April 1, 1794 at Kings in a log house). From 1811 through at least 1818 he was Justice of Peace and Supervisor of the Town of Greenfield, N.Y. He was known as the "Peace Maker". In 1822 when the Second Baptist Church of Greenfield (Daketown) disbanded he became a member of the Greenfield Center First Baptist Church. He lived in Greenfield until his death on July 1, 1843. He is buried in the Dake Cemetery, Daketown, Saratoga Co., N.Y.
From "Greenfield Glimpses" and written by Jennie E. Rowell, daughter of Serepta (Dake) Smith and grand-daughter of Benjamin C. Dake.
The Dake Homestead was
erected by Charles Dake, Jr. at the end of the lane which is a short distance
east of the Daketown Rural School. It was a large two story Colonial Type with
an attached woodshed which always held an ample supply of firewood. Inasmuchas
modern plumbing was not available all water used was carred in and out with
pails. The large basement had a vegetable and a general storage area at the
rear of which was an apple storage cellar. The farm orchard produced as many
as 200 barrels of apples annually. There was also a milk cellar with shelves
for milk pans and cheese storage. Space was provided for a cheese press and
storage of jars of butter covered with cool wet cloths. Both butter and eggs
were sold to the Frank Hewitt Grocery in Saratoga Springs. Food was prepared
in the kitchen on the first floor where Grandmother displayed her cherised willow-ware
dishes. In the parlor between the front windows stood a white marble top table
which always held the Family Bible. An unabridged dictionary, current copies
of the Tribune and the Christain Advocate were also available. The walls were
adorned with lovely crayon pictures mounted in heavily gilded frames attesting
to Mother's devotion and proficiency in art studies at the Jonesville Academy.
All the upstairs bedrooms had rag carpets made of rags sewed by Grandma and
the girls, then woven on the Wilsey family loom. The bedroos, at least the two
guest rooms were hated by little fluted woodstoves. Their doors opened to the
front enabling one to read their future in the flames. The four poster bends
were piled high with feather bedding, down comforters and converlets of homespun
wool. The quilts had carefully stitched patterns of the orthodox styles, some
of which were original with Grandma, copied from wallpapers. Curtains, reaching
the floor, called valeces, were hung around the rooms, "band boxes"
were placed under he beds. Each bedroom had a washstand with the necessary "pre-plumbing"
equipment. There were ten beds on the second floor. Grandfather and Grandmother
always had one or two boys living with them, working during the summers and
attending school in the winters. When they reached age eighteen they were dismissed
with $100. and a new suit of clothes. With a large household the arrival of
a half dozen persons at mealtime caused on embarrassment such as it might do
now. Grandmother adopted little Adaline to bridge the gap of four boys between
Serepta and Mary. She married happily from their home. She would return yearly
with her ever increasing brood of little Lewthwaites for a visit. Each season
some of Grandmother's brothers and sisters, who still regarded "Ben C's"
as home, came for a visit. Usually for a period of one to six weeks. After Grandmother
attended Jonesville Academy, her former school friends often came, especially
summers that the many beds were fully occupied. In the clothespress off from
the nursery, hung the silk dresses of black and gray. Even Grandmother's meager
little face "quivered" the finest ostrich plume in Saratoga County,
draped around a black straw bonnet in summer and a velvet one in winter. There
never was a crimp or curl in her neatly parted gray hair, never a trace of corn
starch on her face. She would recall the past and say "I was the best looking
one of Father's girls". I was once asked to make a public prayer, but begged
off as unequal to it. An old resident said, "Your Grandmother could make
a prayer equal to that of any minister, yet she had had only five days of school
and that of a pioneer.". There is a tradition that Charles Dake, Jr., realizing
the need for an education of his own children and those of rural Daketown community,
built the Daketown School on a corner of his farm. he himself taught the school
during the winter. As to Grandfather Dake, I have been told that he had the
farm from his father, the "Old Peace-maker", run down and encumbered,
and made it a paying place, supporting all of those who have been mentioned.
Also he sent "away to school" all of his eight children except for
Uncle Charles. Years ago he paid the mortgage saving the Jamesville Baptist
Church. Like many a person he has been in a decline and yet outlives us all.
My Mother has often spoken of her Father's kindly patience in his old age.

He received his B.S. degree
in Mechanical Engineering from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI on December
2001. He then worked with Dr. Majdalani as a Research Assistant in the area
of thermal management and electronics cooling. He also served the Department
of Mechanical Engineering as a Teaching Assistant, helping to organize and lead
numerous Laboratory sections for the Energy Conversion Processes and Instrumentation
and Measurements courses. While his technical assistance to Dr. Majdalani led
to several proposal grants and awards, his research work led to an important
discovery in thermal management. He determined that flow vortication in a confined
space can have a significant effect on heat transfer enhancement; so he set
on to research the most practical and simple configurations that could lead
to flow-heat transfer enhancement in the context of electronics cooling. After
experimenting with nearly a hundred different designs, he determined the optimal
winglets/vortex trippers that generate the strongest vortices in channel flow.
He also discovered that quadrupole vortices are among the simplest and most
effective ways to control the flow in a channel. His work led to a comprehensive
325-page M.S. thesis that was published in two volumes, in December 2004. He
graduated with a 3.875 GPA after receiving the 2002-2003 Graduate Fellowship
Award from the NASA Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium for his work on "Cooling
of the Next Generation Micro-Chips in Aerospace Communications."
Prior to beginning graduate degree work, he was employed for 15 years as a thermal engineer designing heat exchangers and HVAC&R systems (Modine/Thermacore in Racine, WI). This professional work included projects involving the cooling by refrigerants and glycol solutions of servers and PCBs. During this period of full-time, professional employment, he has completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering with focus in thermal system analysis. While at Modine and Thermacore, he personally designed hundreds of heat exchangers of various types; participated in the design of nearly every kind of HVAC&R system; developed dozens of new products and methods of design and construction; tested and simulated scores of heat exchangers and systems; and was an integral part of the development of numerous new heat transfer advancements.

AHCBG. Alonzo Henry Dake
Alonzo was born to parents John Dake and Amelia (DuBois) Dake about 1832 in (possibly Saratoga Co.), New York. In 1848, he moved to California. Between 1859 and 1860, he was listed as a Physician in Sacramento, CA. In 1861, he was listed as a Gold Miner in Placer Co., CA. He married Carmelita Maria Hermosilla on Dec. 18, 1862 at Sacramento, Sacramento Co., CA. (She was born June 16, 1844 in Concepción, Bio-Bio, Chile and died Oct. 28, 1907 at Oakland, Alameda Co., CA). Alonzo was a heavy drinker, would get in fights and was abusive to Carmelita. The following account was documented in the Argus Newpaper on April 18, 1874, " During the past few weeks a change seems to have come over the usual quiet of the community at large and one would suppose, if such could be possible, that there is an epidemic of murder in the air. The people of Sacramento and San Francisco have been horror stricken by suicides, attempts at murder and the general carnage of humanity during the past two weeks, and we can safely say the killing season has commenced in earnest. And on this particular we regret to say the effects of the mania have reached one quiet town of Auburn. It is our painful duty to have to record a blood chilling assault which took place on Monday last in Auburn, between the hours of six and seven o'clock whereby two citizens, while under the influence of whiskey had an altercation which may result fatally to one and imprisonment to the other. The circumstances about as follows - A resident of Placer, who resides about one mile from Auburn, at the ranch house by the name of "the Shinder" or "Stone House", named A. H. Dake came into the town of Auburn to settle business with some of the merchants and during his stay in town was met in the early part of the evening by a blacksmith, who has a shop and resides in Auburn, named Moses Predom, who was under the influence of liquor. Predom was bosterous and insulting in his language toward Dake and wanted to fight but Dake did not want to make any row, and went away from Predom. Further on in the evening Dake went into Buins' Saloon with some friends, and here he again encountered Predom, who renewed his challenge to fight, and went so far as to strike Dake on the breast with his fist. Even then Dake over looked this and invited Predom to take a drink and be good friends, which was done, both separating at Buins' Saloon. Dake went across the street, just a few steps, to the store of Richard Gordin, and on coming out of Gordins' Store, after settling his business affairs -- met by his hostile follower, who threw down his coat and hat on the street and amid braggadous and -- renewed his challenge. As Predom was in the act of stepping to the middle of the street and squaring off, with his back turned to his adversary, Dake made a half turn to his left, where a barrel of pick handles stood, and seizing one of these struck Predom on the right side of the head three or four times, the stunning effect of which felled Predom to the ground, where Dake followed up the assult by hitting him several times while he lay insensible on the ground. Parties interfered and Dake was conveyed to the County Jail, and Predom was conveyed to his home by four men, bleeding profusely and in an insensible condition. Surgeon D. M. Todd was called in to attend to Predom and upon examination found that there was one scalp wound on the back of the left side of the head, two scalp wounds and a fracture of the skull on the right side of the head, above the temple, deep flesh wound over the right eye, and a fracture of the right cheek bone. Dr. Todd proceeded to tie up the arteries, sew up and dress the wounds which was very successfully accomplished after some hours of hard labour during which everything of clothing where the wounded man lay was saturated with the profusion of blood which he had lost. The specticle which the unfortunate man presented from the wounds was horrible, and seemed to chill the blook of all who gazed upon him. Both men are ordinarily good citizens, Dake being a resident of the County some six or seven years and Predom some fifteen or sixteen years. Dake was formerly a police officer in Sacramento City and the person who killed Charles Yates at Fifth and L Streets, about ten years ago, in consequence of a trouble growning out of the fact that Yates' wife alleged Dake had insulted her. Dake was convicted of man slaughter or murder in the second degree, and served out a portion of his term in San Quentin, but was pardoned five or six years ago, as Mrs. Yates, on her deathbed, confessed that her evidence on the -- on arrival at the killing were false. Both are married men, Dake having a family of five children and Predom five children. Predom when not under the influence of liquor, is said to be a good citizen, a whole souled man, charitable with his money in time of need and honest enough to pay his debts, and a good workman besides, but when intoxicated he becomes very abusive, dangerous and troublesome, wanting to quarrel with his best friend. Dake says that Predom and he have had two or three altercations before, when Predom was intocicated, but that when Predom was sober they always met in a friendly spirt. We called at the County Jail and saw Dake, who says that he is sorry that the occurance took place but that he was so dogged by the man Predom that he could no longer restrain himself from striking him. At the spot where the orrurance took place, a pool of blood was found, which has scarcely dried up yet, the sidewalk convenient being also stained, which is gazed upon with horror by the passers by daily. Since the second day of the occurance the wounded man has had repeated convulsions, sometimes having nearly as many as one every half hour. On Thursday afternoon he presented the first indication of partial consciousiness, by asking for what he wanted, but since that he still remains in an inconscious state. There is a watch of careful nurses employed to attend him who sit up night and day and he is fed with liquids . It is presumed he may recover from his injuries, provided a cessation of the convulsions sets in. Lockjaw is guarded against. Being a very strong and healthly man, his constitution may be able to stand the severe shock, and sanguine hopes for the present and entertained at his recovery."
Alonzo and Carmelita were divorced on June 9, 1879, on the grounds of abuse and lack of financial support of his family. Carmelita to make a living after the divorce was listed as a farmer for a couple of years. Alonzo was listed as a Carpenter in Placer County, CA in 1880. They were remarried on Nov. 27, 1883. Between 1884 and 1885, it appears that Alonzo went back to Gold Mining in Placer County, CA. They divorced a second time on Oct. 21, 1887, again on the grounds of abuse and lack of support. He was killed on May 14, 1888 at Auburn, Placer Co., CA and buried at the Odd Fellows Cemetery.
In the Placer Hearld Newspaper on May 18, 1888 an account of his killing was reported, "FATAL SHOOTING AFFRAY - On last Monday night, in the bar room of the Empire Hotel, A.H. Dake was shot by Martin Pelster and died within an hour. Both parties are well known in this county, having lived here since the early mining days. The shooting, as near as can be ascertained, grew out of the following circumstances; Mrs. Dake got a second divorce from Dake in October, 1887 on the ground of drunkenness and the failure to provide for the family, and has continued to live at the family home, the Stone Hours, ever since. Sometime after her divorce Pelster began to court Mr. Dake and they became engaged to be married. Dake hearing this returned from Colfax where he had been following his trade of carpenter, and according to report, threatened to shoot them, if they married. On the day of the shooting, Dake and Pelster talked the matter over and appeared to be on friendly terms. Dake asserted that Mr. Dake had promised at the time of the divorce that she would not marry again. Pelster agreed to cease paying attention to the lady, if she acknowledged the promise. After taking a few drinks they went to the Stone House to hear her account of the matter. Mrs. Dake denied having made the promise where upon Dake went away and Pelster stayed for supper. While at supper some one fired through the window, the shot taking effect in the bicep muscle of Pelster's right arm. It appears that no one except a very young boy saw the assassin, and told the family that he had seen his father looking through the window. Dake was at different places in Auburn that evening and was apparently as collected as ever, and did not act like a man who had attempted murder. He went to the Empire to pass the night and was talking with Ed. Gerlach, when suddenly the folding doors parted and a gun was discharged, the load taking effect in Dake's face and neck. As he fell he asked who shot him? Dr. Todd was summoned but could not save him. Dake lived about an hour after the shot. Pelster walked in, laid down his gun and showing his arm said "Here's where he shot me and I have got the best of him now". Dake was buried in the Odd Fellows Cemetery, Wednesday morning. Justice Dunnam admitted Pelster to bail in the sum of $2,000 to appear today at 10 o'clock for preliminary examination."
Carmelita married a second
time to Martin Pelster on May 22, 1888, so Martin must have gotten off on the
charge of murder. On October 3, 1905, she petitions to raise her grand daughter
Silvia (daughter of Henry Alonzo Dake). She died October 28, 1907 at Oakland,

Frank was born to parents Alonzo Dake and Carmelita (Hermosilla) Dake on May 12, 1875 at Auburn, Placer Co., CA. He married Nanette Belle Middleton on Nov. 25, 1898. Between 1898 and 1904 he lived in Colfax, Placer Co., CA. From 1907 until 1917 he lived in Alameda, CA.

He was President of the
Kearney Bank in May 1879 when it defaulted. (See story below),
Among the many events in the history of Kearney that caused great excitement was the failure of the Kearney Bank in May, 1879.
Until a short time before the bank suspended, it was regarded as one of the solid institutions of Kearney. C. W. Dake, the President of the bank, was one of the most public-spirited men of the county, and was universally loved and respected. Depositors, and the citizens in general, had unlimited confidence in his business integrity. For some weeks there had been a rumor that the affairs of the bank were in an unsafe condition; yet the confidence of the depositors was so great that but few gave these rumors credence. A very few, however, withdrew their deposits. About this time the investigation of County Treasurer Van Sickle was attracting public attention, and but few suspected the real condition of the bank, and when, one morning, the bank was declared closed, the depositors were taken completely by surprise. Some few, however, took the precaution to at once have their deposits secured. A great number of the depositors were workingmen, whose little all was deposited here, and which represented the savings of many years. When it became public that the bank was closed, the citizens of Kearney were at first dumbfounded with surprise. Then there was a general panic, the citizens nearly crazy with excitement. Besides immediate losses, all branches of business suffered as the result of this failure. A feeling of distrust, and a general lack of confidence, pervaded the entire business community, and as a result of this the business of the town was seriously retarded for some time. Many poor people who had deposited here lost their all. At first there was a general feeling of indignation manifested toward Mr. Dake, many believing that he had enriched himself from their deposits, though this was hardly true, as he too lost all his property. Though many of his actions were inexcusable, and though there had been general mismanagement of the affairs of the bank, the failure was misfortune rather than intentional dishonesty. Mr. Dake had always been foremost in every public enterprise for the purpose of benefiting the city or county. This very public spiritedness caused him to embark in venturesome enterprises and speculations, that caused not only his own ruin, but that of many of the depositors. Among the enterprises in which he was engaged were the Black Hills Stage Route, of which he was the proprietor, and the school section additions to the city of Kearney. Besides this, he was careless in his business affairs. He loaned money recklessly to parties without taking proper security, trusting to their honesty alone, and, as a natural result, lost heavily. Some of the men to whom he had loaned money failed, and were unable to pay to the bank any of their indebtedness; while many others could not or would not meet their obligations when due, thus making its suspension absolutely necessary.
The day previous to the closing of the bank Mr. Dake made an assignment of all his property, both real and personal, to E. C. Calkins and Nathan Campbell, for the benefit of his creditors. The liabilities of the bank were great and the assets small, with a great deal of the property in such a condition that the money could not be realized at once; therefore, a proposition was made to the creditors that they allow a new bank to be started from the assets of the Kearney Bank, the creditors to take one-half of the money due them in capital stock in the new bank, and the remainder in certificates of deposit, which were to be paid in twelve monthly installments. This proposition, however, was not accepted, and only a small percentage of the money due the depositors has ever yet been paid.
C. W. Dake, having put all of his property in the hands of the assignees, and finding that no arrangements could be made by which he could again go into business and pay his debts from his earnings, left the city, penniless, and the last known of him by his Kearney friends he was keeping a boarding-house in Colorado.
Charles and his wife rode the tourist train to Pine Grove, CO and fell in love with the area. After Charles used his Civil War script to purchase 160 acres in the area, he platted the town of Pine Grove, Jefferson County, CO, in 1886. President W. Harrison signed the land deed. Charles provided places for people to build cabins and homes and then provided support services. He lived in the town and ran a boarding house, he was the general manager of the Pine Grove Resorts, a summer resort. He was also the proprietor of the Cottage Hotel. He built the Pine Mercantile Building, which was first a hay and feed store and later he ran a general store. The Mercantile Building now operates as the Pine Emporium. The side yard of the Mercantile Building had the original train switch-back. He built a Post Office next door. A two room public school house was built to educate all the young people in the area and now is a private residence. Charles was a Justice of Peace from 1888 until his death in 1907. He organized and owned the Pine Grove Water and Light Co. He built a dam on Elk Creek with the idea of supplying the entire town with water. He donated land for the Pine Grove Cemetery. He sold land on which the Methodist Church was built, this building is now the Pine Gorve Community Center. Charles contributed polically to Jeffereson County and the State of Colorado for the rest of his life. He was a member of the 9th General Assembly as a Representative of Jefferson County. In sketches and portraitures of the state officers and members of the Ninth General Assembly, Charles was described as one of the most agressive spirts in the up-building of that section. Also Representative Dake did much for the State School of Mines in Golden, besides giving Colorado an excellent game law. By1910, Nancy is widowed and living in Chicago, Cook County, IL.

The International Telework
Association and Council, or ITAC, has awarded their annual "Star of Telework"
Leadership Award to Maj. Gen. Terrence L. Dake, United States Air Force Reserve
Mobilization Augmentee commander for Air Force Materiel Command. Every year
ITAC recognizes individuals and organizations showing leadership, innovation
and who promote advances in the field of teleworking.
Under Gen. Dake's leadership, the AFMC Reserve program has successfully piloted the use of telecommuting in support of military activities across the globe. Gen. Dake's vision and advocacy of telecommuting has been instrumental in allowing reservists to provide better customer service to the active duty force.
Telecommuting effectively expands duty time so reservists are available to work anywhere, at anytime. Over the past four years, Reserve officers assigned to AFMC have used telecommute opportunities to complete a multitude of projects while not physically located at their unit of assignment. This experience has shown telecommuting provides quality, task-oriented products, while saving time and money.

Kyle Dake wins his semifinal match at the World WrestlingChampionships on Oct. 21, 2018 in Budapest, Hungary.
Kyle Dake waited years for his chance to represent the United States at the World Wrestling Championships. On Monday, he capped off his debut appearance with a performance he’ll never forget. The 27-year-old from Ithaca, New York, is the newest world champion at 79 kilograms after a 2-0 victory over Olympic bronze medalist and two-time world championship bronze medalist Jabrayil Hasanov of Azerbaijan in Budapest, Hungary. Dake earned his first point when Hasanov couldn’t score to start the match and went to the break leading 1-0. He got a single leg to force a step out and take a 2-0 lead and then the clock ran down on Hasanov.
Dake, a four-time NCAA champion from Cornell joins another former college standout, Penn State’s David Taylor, who won the first U.S. gold medal of these championships for Team USA on Sunday. The U.S. has now won five medals so far at the world championships. This was Dake’s first time on the senior world team after finding himself stuck behind Jordan Burroughs and J’den Cox the past several years. Burroughs defeated Dake in 2013, 2015 and 2017 to make the world teams at 74 kg. and Cox beat him in the finals of the 2016 Olympic Trials at 86 kg. Cox is wrestling this year at 82 kg. and Burroughs won bronze at 74 on Sunday. Dake entered the competition ranked No. 4 in the world at 79 kg.

The following is a memorial to C.L. Dake written by Josiah Bridge of the U.S.G.S. (U.S. Geological Society) The article appeared first on January 1935 in A.A.P.G. Bulletin, v. 19, no. 1,pp.143-147.
Charles Laurence Dake was born in Chaseburg, Wisconsin on April 2, 1883, the eldest son of George E. and Mary A. Dake. George Dake was a carpenter and builder, and in early life young Charles started to learn his father’s trade, but soon afterward decided to enter the teaching profession. After completing his high school course, he spent 2 years at the State Normal School and then entered the University of Wisconsin, receiving his A.B. degree of Philosophy by Columbia University. He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Sigma Xi, the American lnstitute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers, and a Fellow of the Geological Society of America. During his last year at Wisconsin he married Miss Ella Hildegard Falkenstern, of Portage, Wisconsin.
ln the fall of 1912, Dr. Dake received a temporary appointment as instructor in geology at Williams College. The following year he became assistant professor of geology at the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy. He was made associate professor in 1918, and professor and head of the department in 1921, a position which he held during the remainder of his life.
Dake was primarily an educator. His most important contribution to geology is to be found in the large number of professional geologists who began their training in his classrooms. He had a tremendous enthusiasm for his subject, and a clear and forceful manner of presentation. His students soon learned that it was not sufficient to be able to repeat what had been said in the lecture or what was contained in the text, for his examinations were almost invariably so framed as to require a student to reason from the facts rather than merely remember and repeat them. Small wonder that one of the students once remarked with a long face, "lt's no use taking a ‘crib' to Doc's exam, for you never can make one up to fit his questions." Professor Dake's particular pride and hobby in teaching was his course in interpretation of topographic and geologic maps, and, in all probability, no better course in the subject has ever been given. lt was an eye-opener for all who took it, and particularly to students who had entered with advanced standing and who had rashly tried(without success) to substitute work done elsewhere for it. Out of this course grew a very useful little text, The interpretation of Topographic and Geologic Maps, written in collaboration with John S. Brown, a former student. Dake had long cherished the idea of writing a book which would be a revision and amplification of the United States Geological Survey Professional Paper 60, and which would make use of the finer and more detailed topographic maps which had appeared since that volume had been published. The cost of such a volume was prohibitive, however, and no publisher would take it. lt was not until a plan was worked out whereby lists of available topographic maps were substituted for plates that it became possible. ln their search for material for this book the authors examined practically every topographic and geologic map which had been published by the United States Geological Survey, as well as hundreds of maps from other sources.
Professor Dake took a keen interest in the educational standards of the department and of the school and was always on the alert to improve them. As head of the department, he was a member of the policy committee of the school, and he also served on the committees on graduate students and curricula. He was greatly interested in the whole problem of engineering education and, at the time of his death, was chairman of the American institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers' committee on engineering education. Dake's own struggle for an education, against poverty and prejudice, has never been fully told, but it left its mark, and make him bitterly intolerant of the student who came to college "because he had to," or the one who "came to have a good time." He expected his students to show the same enthusiasm and industry that he himself possessed, and this was especially true if the man had signified any intention of becoming a geologist. "l could give you a passing grade on this paper if you were merely taking the course because it is a required subject," he once told a student, "but, you have signified your intention of becoming a geologist, and I have a right to expect better work of you than of some of the others." He was always interested in the progress of his students, always willing and eager to discuss their problems with them, always ready to help them if possible, and managed, somehow or other, to keep in touch with many of them long after they had left school and entered professional work.
While a student at Wisconsin, Dake worked in the lron Ranges both for the Wisconsin Geological Survey and for private companies. After coming to the Missouri School of Mines, most of his field seasons were spent in the employ of the Missouri Bureau of Geology and Mines. Out of this work came three large publications:
"The Sand and Gravel Resources of Missouri," 1918; "The Problem of the St. Peter Sandstone," 1921;
"The Geology of the Potosi-Edgehill Quadrangles,"l930;
He also produced material for a number of shorter papers, and gained a reputation as one of the outstanding students of the stratigraphy of the early Paleozoic of the Mississippi Valley. In the course of this work, he mapped the distribution of certain formations of the Ozark Uplift in sufficient detail to permit them to be shown separately on the 1922 edition of the "Missouri State Geological Map."
This was the first edition of this map, in which, such a separation had been attempted. Later studies in the Ozarks were partly responsible for the more detailed subdivision shown on the 1926 edition of this map.
Dake spent the summer of 1916 along the Rocky Mountain Front in northwestern Wyoming gathering data for a geological map of the state for the Wyoming Geological Survey. Out of this work came an important short paper, " The Heart Mountain Over thrust and Associated Structures in Park County, Wyoming." lt was a clear description of one of the great over thrust faults of the northern Rockies, a type of structure whose existence in this region had not been clearly demonstrated before.
ln 1917,1920, and again, in 1930 he obtained a year's leave of absence from the school and spent the time in professional work, and in graduate study; the first year for the consulting firm of Valerius, McNutt, and Hughes; the second at Columbia University; the third in the employ of the Sinclair Company.
During the summer of 1934 he was again in northwestern Vlffoming working on the Heart Mountain over thrust in collaboration with W.H. Bucher and R.T. Chamberlain. This work was a part of the Yellowstone-Beartooth-Big Horn project, one of the several projects carried on with the funds from the Penrose bequest to the Geological Society of America. He had been making a study of the distribution and nature of the "exotic" limestone masses along the mountain front between Greybull and Shoshone rivers, and mapping the critical thrust features in the valley of the South Fork of the Shoshone.
Dr. Dake was never a robust man, but his energy and enthusiasm for his work were tremendous. ln the field he often drove himself to the point of exhaustion. He had completed his field work and was returning home with his wife, son, and two daughters when he was stricken with a cerebral hemorrhage, doubtless, brought on by hard work in high altitudes, and died shortly after reaching the hospital in Denver.
