Bio and Links
Bio Photo Nathan Simmons began his career in 1973 designing turnkey UHF TV stations in the United States. He expanded into designing advanced 35mm and 70mm audio playback and acoustic systems for film art house legend Bob Berney (now President of Picturehouse).

Moving to Hollywood in 80's, he worked in postproduction where he was the editor of prime time TV shows, specials and a new art form at the time, music videos. Eager to explore new media, he received an offer by Douglas Aircraft Company to design one of the first all-digital computer animation systems using Silicon Graphics IRIS 2500 graphic workstations.

He was promoted to Producer/Director at Douglas for Air-to-Air photography using 35mm film and a unique aircraft snorkel platform called "AstroVsion" equipped on a specially modified Learjet 35 owned by Clay Lacy Aviation.

In 1990 he was commissioned by an investment firm as lead designer on a three-year project resulting in "Hollywood Digital", Hollywood's first all-serial digital postproduction facility (now apart of the Ascent Media Group).

In 1994 he joined Sony Electronics as a specialist for production systems, post and DVD authoring, then in 1999 he moved to Leitch Technology Corporation as Product Manager, where in 2001 his team received a Technical Emmy award for broadcast servers providing shared storage to multiple channels using Fibre Channel Architecture. He joined Panasonic in their successful venture and market dominance in high definition and digital cinema camera acquisition systems and mastering, as direct sales representative to the major Motion Picture Studio, Television Networks and media outlets.

A member of SMPTE since he was 19, he is the past Secretary, Treasurer, President and board member of the Society of Television Engineers, as well as an honorary Alumni of UCLA for his donation of numerous 35mm Imbibition Technicolor release prints of classic films to the university's film archive.

Orrin Daniels Photo
Thank you for the photos of both Orrin and Donald Daniels. Your time and effort appreciated. Genevieve was their mother, and yes, would like the photo for her , too. The elder Donald (1892) should be included. I do not know who the Elizabeth is.

RE: Eva May
Thank you for the info on John Elmer Mohn. I didn't know his grave was unmarked. I will add that to my tree and maybe some day get a marker for both of them.
I didn't know there is a "handwritten" map of the grave placements! Great info. My great great grandmother, Elizabeth Cox Mohn had no marker even though two of her children were well to do and could certainly have provided her a stone of some sort! She is buried next to her husband Harrison B Mohn and he has a military stone.
Thanks again!
