Bob Lingard
Envionmental Consultant
Troy, New York

My grandfather, Eric, was born in the Lancestershire district in the early 1900s, and moved to Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada when he was five years old. He and his wife, Elsie, still live there today.

My father, Donald, was born in Lethbridge in 1933 and recently retired as a professor emeritus from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He is a professor and a large animal veterinarian.
I was born in 1964 in Pullman, Washington. I have recently returned to school after working ten years as an environmental consultant (the nice folks who laid me off can be found at, and now live in Troy, New York (near Albany). I am pursuing a M.S. in Architectural Lighting at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Lighting Research Center (, with the generous support and encouragement of my darling wife, Suzanne (Wainwright... more good English stock). I will likely work with the LRC, researching light and vision with the facility's director, Dr. Mark Rea.
My grandfather (Eric) seems to have come from a long line of John Lingards, who were meatcutters and greengrocers in Lancashire. I have better notes buried in my boxes (we're in the middle of a slow-motion move right now).
My interests include renovating our house (built 1945), motorcycles (I have owned three old BMWs... currently between bikes), writing (including the lost art of handwritten correspondence), videography and photography. My wife and I hope to visit Europe within the next few years.
