He later returned to Utah where through his work as a Soil Physicist he gained an international reputation, particularly for his methods of conserving irrigation water.
The papers are, for the most part, arranged in the original order. The arrangement is chronological by either the earliest or only dated item in the file. An oversized manuscript, personal award, and certificate along with the graveside service for Dr. Lauritzen are placed at the end of the collection in a legal-size box.
