Aulton E. "Bob" Roland

Bio: Aulton E. "Bob" Roland has spent most of his life in New Mexico―his family arrived in Albuquerque from the Midwest in 1949 when Bob was eight years old. A retired Lead Engineer with the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP), he has had a long and consuming interest in New Mexico’s history which led him to writing this first book. Roland divides his time between his home in Grants and his ranch house located twenty five miles south.
