Barry Thompson – Reclassification Talk
NBRC Past President, Barry Thompson, was born in Jackson, Tenn. His father managed the Piggly Wiggly factory there making store equipment for franchisees of this forerunner of the post WWII supermarket. Barry completed high school, university, medical school, internship/ residency in pediatrics before being drafted into the military in 1968. He gave a power point presentation of his 30-year career in the US Air Force (clinician, educator, laboratorian, commander, and Command Surgeon) and his two interrupted retirements. Barry’s “Pollination Services” classification stems from his long relationship (1954) with honey bees.
