Robert H. Giles, Jr. was born on May 25, 1933, in Lynchburg, Virginia. He attended E.C. Glass High School. He won a Bausch and Lomb Science award in high school for studies of the ring-necked pheasant. As an Eagle Scout, he won the W. T. Hornaday National Award for Distinguished Service to Conservation, and in national competition, the James E. West Scouting Conservation Scholarship for a conservation essay and activities. During high school and the summer of 1953 he taught nature lore, scout craft, and similar subjects at Boy Scout, 4-H, and private camps in Virginia and Kent, Connecticut.

From September, 1951, to June, 1955, he attended Virginia Polytechnic Institute. He was enrolled in the Forestry and Wildlife Conservation curriculum, elected the forestry option, and graduated with a B.S. in Biology; Major, Forestry. During this time he was feature and news writer for the campus newspaper; founded and edited The Virginia Tech Nique, a student agricultural magazine; was a member of the forestry club and editor of the club annual, The Virginia Tech Forester; elected president of the V.P.I. Corps of Cadets of 6000 students; and awarded the university President's Campus-Man-of-the-Year award in 1955. In addition, he was chapter president of the Omicron Delta Kappa, national leadership honorary; member of other national honoraries, Alpha Zeta (agricultural), Pi Delta Epsilon (journalism), Pershing Rifles and Scabbard Blade (military), Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges, Sigma Xi (scientific), Phi Sigma (biological), and Xi Sigma Pi (forestry).

From June, 1955, to June, 1957, he completed two years of study and research leading to a Master of Science Degree; Major, Wildlife Management, with Dr. J. S. Lindzey, Unit Leader. His work on the conservation knowledge of Virginia school pupils was supported by the Wildlife Management Institute. Following formal courses in zoology, botany, and ecology, he took supplementary work in educational measurement. He administered 15,000 tests on conservation based to a sample of the total state school population in grades 7-12.

He attended Infantry Basic Training at Ft. Benning, Ga., and won a U.S. Army Ranger tab at the end of that period in the active Reserves.

He is married (since 1956) to Mary Wilson Burnette Giles. They have two daughters, Anne Hayes Giles, born December 30, 1958, and Margaret Pfeiffer Galecki, born October 17, 1960. They have 3 grandchildren.

He joined the Virginia Commission of Game and Inland Fisheries in 1958 and lived in Covington, Virginia, where he worked with wildlife managers on four districts of the George Washington National Forest. He was responsible for forest wildlife management on the Forest and in a five-county area.

He attended The Ohio State University in 1961. He was awarded a PhD for work on the effects of malathion insecticide labeled with the S-35 isotope on forests in the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District North of Dover/New Philadelphia, Ohio. His work was supported by the US Atomic Energy Commission.

He went to teach and do research in the College of Forestry, Wildlife, and Range Science at the University of Idaho, Moscow, Idaho, in 1964. There he taught big game management, a wildlife techniques course, and graduate seminars. He was involved in creating the wilderness research center with Dr. Paul Dalke late in his stay there. He left Idaho in 1967 and joined the faculty of the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech).

Dr. Giles was given the first annual faculty award for teaching excellence by the students of the School (forestry and Wildlife Sciences). In 1977 he won the Wine Award, a university cash prize for teaching excellence.

In 1971 he gained an NSF Scientific Instructional Equipment grant while at Virginia Tech enabling him to acquire analog computers and a programmable calculator. He has continually attempted to use innovative educational aids including individual handouts, textbook supplements, overhead projection, physical game boards, computer based games and educational units, taped lectures, TV units, and others.

In 1967 he was a group chairman and participated in meetings of the National Academy of Sciences - Commission on Education in Agriculture and Natural Resources.

He has taught in several colleges: Integrated Pest Management (College of Agriculture), Man and the Environment (College of Architecture), and given lectures in agroforestry, world forestry, photogrammetry (GIS), and human health systems (College of Human Resources), Descriptive Environmental Systems and Design (Architecture); Complexity of Socio-Technological Problems (Mechanical Engineering).

In 1999 he developed and taught a distance-learning wildlife management course at the Northern Virginia Graduate Center. He continues adding material to that course content on the Internet.

In the summer of 1952 he worked for the U.S. Forest Service in Oakridge, Oregon, as a fireguard and trail crewman. While a student at Virginia Tech, he was employed as a vegetative mapper for the Bartlett Tree Surgeon Company for the Greenbriar Hotel, White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. He had previously been a temporary employee of a local tree surgeon and also of a local veterinarian.

In September, 1963, he joined the College of Forestry, Wildlife, and Range Science at the University of Idaho as a instructor. While in Moscow he was active in student organizations, taught Techniques of Wildlife Management, Big Game Management, and a graduate seminar. Field trips and meetings throughout the state enabled him to become familiar with the state and its people. His research with a forest pesticide, metasystox, was published as a college bulletin. Results of other research, one on a topographic model of populations and the other on elk browse field analyses, have been published. He was involved in early reconnaissance of and reports on the Taylor wilderness property now acquired for the University of Idaho wilderness research center.

He was presented a plaque of appreciation by one of his classes and had three of his students join him at VPI and SU for Ph.D. work - C. D. Buffington, C. Lobdell, and T. D. McKinney.

In Idaho he developed several computer-based instructional games in wildlife management. He left Idaho in 1967 as an assistant professor and joined the staff of the College of Forestry and Wildlife Resources (then the Department of Forestry and Wildlife) in September, 1967, as an associate professor. He was promoted to professor in 1972.

In 1976 he was presented the Virginia Governor's Conservationist of the Year award. He has attended many classes, seminars, and workshops since 1964 including an intensive NATO-sponsored summer workshop in statistical ecology in 1978.

Research

Dr. Giles' research interests are broad and are reflected in the following lists of theses and publications. They are centered on a systems approach to resource management and lean toward computer applications to the solution of environmental problems, particularly wildland problems. He has worked intensively on the problems of wildlife rabies, population simulation, management decision analyses, and comprehensive large area data bases used in impact analyses.

He worked on a series of studies of rabies epidemiology as a system from 1965 to 1975. He developed a computer-based rabies analysis system for the State Health Department which integrates disease control data with laboratory analyses and produces measures of program effectiveness.

Simultaneously, he completed a computer system with the U.S. Forest Service in the Pacific Northwest on big game forage analyses. As a result of this effort and presentations at Oak Ridge National Laboratories, he was employed by the U.S. Wildlife Refuge System as a consultant. This activity resulted in involvement with one Ph.D. study, "Analysis of the Structure and Function of the Decision Making Process in the U.S. Wildlife Refuge System."

He became involved at the University of Idaho in wildlife law enforcement research where field work as well as computer simulations were conducted. Violations were dealt with largely as a stochastic process in population simulation models. He then wrote extensively about the needs in law enforcement research and organized and administered the Southeastern Wildlife Law Enforcement Research Project for many years. This was a cooperative endeavor among five states, the Wildlife Management Institute, the American Petroleum Institute, and the National Wildlife Federation. That effort terminated in 1979.

Research in population modeling has been successfully pursued with students. Early efforts in Idaho were published in the Journal of Wildlife Management. This and subsequent work in simulation resulted in an invitation to prepare two sections for the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, one in "Wildlife Conservation", and the other on "Wildland Operations Research."

Mr. John Mechler, in his M.S. thesis, analyzed deer population data for the State from 1947 to 1967 and developed regression equations for counties in Virginia. These and later work by Richard Holloran provide the basis for predicting deer harvests in the next year and enable improved decision making about game seasons. He has developed an extensive deer population simulator, now available for state wildlife agent use. Future modifications of this system, by Hoecker in the model called NATAL, tied to the regression analyses of Mechler, provide a substantial body of knowledge for improved deer hunting recreation in the state.

A series of theses has been directed, along with staff action, to creating a statewide information system. That effort continues with success having been reached in (1) automating environmental assessments for powerlines, airports, and surface mines, (2) providing computer-produced aids for comprehensive land use planning, and (3) developing wildlife information systems, both knowledge-based (BOVA, a wildlife information system created and delivered to the Virginia wildlife agency) as well as geographic information.

He edited the book Wildlife Management Techniques (1971). As author of two chapters of the book Manual of Wildlife Conservation, he was invited in several years to make lectures before the National Conservation Commissioners Shortcourse at Ft. Collins, Colorado. He authored Wildlife Management (Freeman Co., 1978) a widely used textbook and a book on principles of wildlife management translated into Chinese in 1994.

He has been a research reviewer for the National Park Service, the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, and NSF, and has reviewed many articles for the Journal of Wildlife Management, Environmental Management, and others.

Extension

While he has had no direct responsibility in the state Cooperative Extension Program, he has been very active there. He has lectured often at the 4-H Club Congress. He was co-director of a week long TVA workshop for the staff of the Division of Forestry, Fisheries and Wildlife Development.

He has been a major participant in many workshops sponsored by the Extension Division for state wildlife biologists, US Forest Service biologists, participated annually in the Junior Foresters Institute held on campus, and was a member of the Virginia Tech Speakers Bureau and a frequent lecturer to various groups.

Consulting

Urban Design Concept Associates

He assembled a team of three resource experts and did a brief ecological study of the impact of an interstate (I 70-N) on a park in Baltimore, Maryland. The highway was to be built; it simply stopped at the edge of the park ... waiting. It was an after-the-fact job; he reported on the consequences of past decisions. The report was well received. The study provided associations with colleagues, highway commissioners, urban designers, and with city officials.

U.S. Wildlife Refuge System

He was employed as a systems analyst for the Refuge System for one month and subsequent periods of several days each. He wrote a 400 page report, Operation Converge, which was later abstracted. He reported on the state of the System (it was not a system then), that it would be desirable to operate as a system, and how to do it. Many of his recommendations have been implemented.

Virginia Landmark Corporation

He was employed as a member of a resource analysis team to work as an agent for an undisclosed major investment corporation to analyze and provide the ecological design criteria for a large mountainous year-round, recreationally-based community within 4 hours from Washington, D.C. The early planning phase was one of insistence that the community be ecologically "right." Many reports on all aspects of ecological, forest inventory, ski opportunities, housing, golf ranges, roads, watersheds, and fisheries were developed. The area was developed and is now the popular Wintergreen.

He also was employed to do an ecological examination of a proposed housing development in Williamsburg. The study dealt with landscape values, construction limits, design criteria, potential hazards, and suggestions for using the environment to reduce certain undesirable aspects of high-density living (e.g., noise reduction) and preserving and enhancing certain features present (e.g., specimen trees and flower glades).

TVA

He designed the Woodland Resource Analysis Program (WRAP) for TVA. The system used on about 300 farm woodlands each year for many years. It has been shelved for small, personal computer applications.

Essex Community College

He was employed for 3 days to examine the grounds of Essex Community College, Baltimore County, Maryland, and to make recommendations on the impact of proposed parking areas and other campus developments on the campus. The report was accepted and resulted in alterations in campus plans and construction.

Harland Bartholomew Associates

He developed with the staff of the Richmond office of Harland Bartholomew Associates a plan for maintaining the environmental quality and health of the city of Williamsburg. The plan dealt with all aspects of the environment and contained 25 prescriptions as well as an outline for approaches to implementing them. He was awarded the first annual Award of Merit for the document by the Virginia Chapter of the American Institute of Planners.

Nettleton Real Estate, Inc.

He designed a complex, highly integrated, computer-based corporation dealing with the total resource systems of a 9000 acre area near Covington, Virginia. The plan included the following Divisions: Systems Design, Agriculture, Forestry, Wildland, Recreation, Camping, Pure Water, Recycling, Memorial, Education, Publishing and Marketing, Maintenance and Security, Housing, Arts, and Land Rehabilitation (1978).

Dames and Moore

He participated with 25 scientists in the analysis of the environment impacts likely in the Antarctic resulting from NSF research and research operations there (1978).

Penn Virginia Resources Corporation

He has designed and created a land management plan for the 68,000 acre tract in Wise County, Virginia. About 10,000 acres of the land area had been strip mined and the project involved design of total land-use systems for Appalachia, especially the coal counties of Virginia.

Jaakko Poyry Consulting Inc., Tarrytown, New York

Reviewer for the Generic Environmental Impact Statement on Timber Harvesting and Forest Management in Minnesota.

He continues to write, do consulting, lecture, and teach graduate courses (Dynamic Natural Resource Planning Systems and Modern Wildlife Resource Management) in the Northern Virginia Graduate Center , a unit of Virginia Tech. He is developing a late-stage version of Guidance.
