John J. "Jack" Phillips was a "chemical engineer, amateur climatologist, author, USAR major (ret.) and, yes, rocket scientist." He published a book titled "Suppressed Science" in 2006. His long-time family camp on Lake Colby had once been a speakeasy, which may have been Colby Lake Lodge. Jack's obituary appeared in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise on September 3, 2014.
