Walter Sivertsen

Walt is the President of Midwest Creation Fellowship, and has avidly studied the creation/evolution controversy for several decades. His career in chemistry and his certification in quality engineering make him particularly knowledgeable about how science operates, and when it is not literally the scientific method that is operating. Since junior high school, he has been an amateur astronomer. For entertainment, he studies astronomy, calculus, thermodynamics, and all things related to the creation/evolution issue.

Education:

B.S. in Chemistry, 1959, from St. Bernardine of Siena College in Loudonville, New York.

Certificate in Biblical Studies, 1986, from Trinity Seminary in Deerfield, Illinois.

He has been a member of the American Society for Quality (ASQ) for over 30 years, and while working at Abbott Labs, he was trained and certified as an ASQ Quality Engineer in 1974..

Career:

College was followed by service in the U.S. Navy at the Naval Hospital, Bethesda, Maryland, doing research on a biological dosimeter for radiation exposure.

After discharge from the Navy, he worked for Abbott Laboratories for 29 years. During most of that time, he performed, supervised, and developed chemical quality assurance testing of Abbott products. In 1986, he resigned his position with Abbott as a Reference Standards Chemist.

After a year in seminary, he rejoined Abbott, providing technical support for new product development of eye care products. He retired in 1993.

Other:

Mr. Sivertsen realized his need of a Savior and was born-again in March, 1950, at a Word of Life Rally. He later served in a local church for 35 years as, at various times, adult Sunday school teacher, Sunday school superintendent, financial secretary, treasurer, and board chairman.

His life-long hobbies are astronomy, bird-watching, and studying the creation/evolution issue. Walt now volunteers with the Lake County Forest Preserve District as the volunteer Bluebird Administrator.
