新澳门六合彩开奖直播 relocates to Florida, William K. DuPont Carpenter becomes President

By 1958, the organization had outgrown its American Museum of Natural History offices and relocated to Florida to be nearer to Michael Lerner鈥檚 Miami home and beloved Bimini laboratory in photo above. In conjunction with the move, a number of new 新澳门六合彩开奖直播 Governors and members of the Executive Committee were added, and the organization appeared poised and ready for another decade of growth. So it was, but it was to be under a new leader. 

In his prime, William K. DuPont Carpenter was a large imposing man of great character and privilege. Heir to the DuPont fortune, Carpenter stood 6鈥3鈥 and weighed 220-pounds, yet he managed to squeeze into cockpits long enough to forge a distinguished career as an Air Force pilot during WWII. He was an avid hunter and sportsman all his life and is widely regarded today as one of the preeminent giant bluefin tuna anglers of all time. Appointed 新澳门六合彩开奖直播 Vice President in October of 1959, he replaced Mike Lerner as President barely nine months later, a strikingly rapid ascension that was most likely pre-ordained. With Lerner approaching his 70th birthday, it was time for a successor and Bill Carpenter brought not only a sterling fishing resume, but also the financial intelligence necessary to undertake the 新澳门六合彩开奖直播鈥檚 ongoing responsibilities. There may have been other candidates to succeed Lerner, but not with Carpenter鈥檚 combination of credentials.
