Dr. Dillard H. Gates was president in 1975 and presided at the 1976 Annual Meeting in Omaha, Nebraska.
Prior to election, Gates chaired the Professional Affairs Committee working to upgrade professional standards and member awareness of professional responsibilities. This work continued as a major thrust of his presidency.
Other 1975 landmarks include: solidifying cooperative work with the Old West Regional Commission plus exploratory negotiations with other commissions; establishment of the Rangeland Commission working with U.S., Canada, and Mexico; commitment to sponsor the First International Rangeland Congress; and the decision to acquire SRM's first headquarters building.
Prior to his presidency, Gates served as president of the Pacific Northwest Section, as a member of the SRM Board, and on many section and parent society committees. In 1978 he received the SRM Fellow Award and in 1986 the PNW Section Trail Boss Award, He has been a Certified Range Management Consultant since 1979 and has published more than 65 articles in professional and technical journals.
Dillard Gates was born in 1925 at Gates, Nebraska, raised on a stock farm homesteaded by his grandfather and great grandfather and graduated from Gates High School. Following service with the U.S. Coast Guard in the Pacific, he earned B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Nebraska, one year under Dr. J.E. Weaver and, under Dr. L.A. Stoddart, received the first range management Ph.D. awarded by Utah State University.
Following completion of the Ph.D., Dr. Gates worked seven years as Range Scientist for USDA-ARS at the Southern Great Plains Experiment Station, Woodward, Oklahoma and at Washington State University before joining Oregon State University in 1962 as Range Management Extension Specialist. In 1971, following a sabbatical leave as coordinator for the BLM California Desert Project, he became Director of the OSU Range Management Program.
Dr. Gates resigned from OSU in November, 1974 to serve as senior range management specialist with the Agency for International Development (USAID). He was involved with rangeland and related programs in 17 countries in Africa plus several in the Middle East and Latin America. In 1980, Gates retired from USAID and returned to OSU to serve as Director of their Yemen Program.
