San Rafael Research Center Welcomes Chemical Engineering Consultant Dr. Andrew Fry
"Emery County recently entered into a contract with Dr. Andrew Fry to be a consultant at the San Rafael Energy Research Center. Although Dr. Fry will continue teaching at Brigham Young University (BYU), he is certainly no stranger to the Emery County area."

"Dr. Fry grew up in Salt Lake City but moved to Price when he was 15 years old. After graduating from Carbon High School, he worked for PacifiCorp/Rocky Mountain Power for three years in both the Huntington and Hunter power plants. In 1955, when the plants were reducing their workforce, he accepted a lay-off so that he could go climbing in the Himalayas. When he returned from his trip, he worked for an industrial construction company that built mine infrastructure. Some of his assignments for that job were associated with the development of Willow Creek Mine in Helper."
