He served in World War II as a member of the Army Air Force Corporation. After the war he returned to Utah and continued his studies. Gardner received his Masters Degree in 1948 and a Ph.D. in physics in 1950. He taught at a number of institutions in the West. He was president of the Soil Science Society of American and he was widely known for his research and writing in soil physics and soil-water-plant relations. His last position was as professor emeritus at Washington State University where he was president of the Pacific division of the American Association of the Advancement of Science.
