After release from the Navy, he taught Biology and General Science at the Albion Community High School for a year and a half. He was then employed by the US Food and Drug Administration in 1948. Mr. Hill held several positions in the Agency and was assigned to offices in St. Louis, San Francisco, Dallas, Kansas City, and Washington DC until his retirement in 1984. His last position was as Director San Francisco District, which had jurisdiction over the states of Nevada and Hawaii, about the northern two-thirds of California, the territories of Guam and American Somoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas, and all the Pacific Islands that belong to the United States.
