MC History

milnes_headshot_1Harold Milnes, a skilled craftsman, and a devoted and personable teacher, Milnes expected a great deal from his students.

"Cooper Milnes", as he was better known, would often perform a certain ritual on what was called iron heat day. As the first iron melt ran from the furnace into its receiving ladle, he would run his wet index finger through the molten steam and pretend to taste it. After this he would exclaim, "Put a little more salt in it!".

After 38 years of service, Milnes retired in 1969.

Milnes Hall was dedicated in 1965.

A sports enthusiast, Chinnock served for many years as a faculty representative for athletics in the Wisconsin State University Conference and received the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Award of Merit for his contribution to athletics. He is a member of the Stout and UW-River Falls halls of fame.

Chinnock gave much to industrial education and was known for the genuine concern he held for educating others. After 29 years of service, he retired in 1969 with the title professor emeritus.
