Morris Guralnick Associates, Inc. Name Hubert E. Russell
Morris Guralnick Associates, Inc., naval architects and engineers of San Francisco, Calif., have announced the appointment of Hubert E. Russell to the position of assistant chief engineer.
Mr. Russell has been a project manager with MGA for 2% years, and will be in charge of the engineering establishment at the San Francisco office.
MGA is the largest private firm of naval architects in the West, with offices in San Diego, Calif., as well as San Francisco. Among his duties for MGA, Mr. Russell was project manager for the engineering of the new cryogenics vessel Cornucopia for Collier Carbon and Chemical, a task which this firm shares with Todd Shipyards Corporation.
Mr. Russell holds a B.S. degree in marine engineering which he obtained from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in 1950, and an M.S. degree in naval engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1956. After spending six years at sea in Coast Guard ships, he was selected to serve as project manager for the design of the 3,400-ton Hamilton- Class cutters, the f i r s t major Coast Guard design since 1942.
These ships incorporated such advanced features as gas turbine propulsion and controllable-pitch propellers. Cutters Rush, Midgett, and Morganthau of this class are presently stationed in San Francisco Bay. Following delivery of these vessels from Avondale, he received a Coast Guard commendation.
Mr. Russell was selected in 1966 to be chief naval engineer for the Seattle Coast Guard District.
He received the Coast Guard Achievement Medal for his meritorious work in this position.
Since retirement from the Coast Guard in 1970, when he had attained the rank of commander, Mr. Russell was manager of engineering for Airco Temescal, Berkeley, before joining MGA.
He also worked for Lockheed Shipbuilding in Seattle, where his responsibilities included coordination of engineering and production of the newest U.S. icebreaker, the Coast Guard cutter Polar Star.
In addition to the honors mentioned, Mr. Russell is a registered mechanical engineer in California and holds memberships in The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, the American Society of Naval Engineers, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and the engineering honorary societies Tau Beta Pi and Sigma Xi.
