(In Memoriam 02-02-09)
Harold developed an early interest in photography, stemming in part from his father, George Short, who was a noted professional photographer on the Monterey Peninsula. Harold went on to gain a BS degree in Photographic Science from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1961. He worked for the Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation, where he applied his photographic skills to the development of semiconductor chips. Harold took early retirement from Fairchild to pursue a broad range of interests, including not only photography but stamp collecting and environmental causes as well. He was a long-time leader of the Photography Group at the Carmel Foundation, and was also an instructor in the Foundation’s Photoshop Laboratory. Members of the Photography Group all remember Harold fondly for his inestimable contributions.
