Rainier National Park. The 1900s view looks out from the shoulders of Mt. Rainier toward the Tatoosh Range

Rainier National Park. These old stereoviews make great "canvas" for re-photography. Rainier toward the Tatoosh Range. The tree growth is obvious here, less so is the amount of "wear" on this trail from the feet of millions of visitors. I shot this on July 3 when there was still plenty of snow here.

Born in Seattle, Washington on November 8, 1934, Hodge grew up in the neighboring town of Snohomish. As a youth his interests were primarily physics, astronomy and music. He obtained a BS degree in physics at Yale University in 1956 and a PhD degree in astronomy at Harvard University in 1960.
