A Time of Transition
After Dave Sr’s unexpected death in 1973, George Miller became the third president of C.S. Davidson, Inc. George had been an engineer with the firm since 1959, serving as chief sanitary engineer. At the same time, Dave Davidson, Jr. rejoined the company after receiving his B.S. in Civil Engineering at Lehigh University and a M.S. in Environmental Water Resource Engineering at Vanderbilt College. Dave’s mother, Jody Davidson (later married to Louis J. Appell, Jr.) also led the firm and community during these formative years, serving on a multitude of advisory boards and organizations, including the York Chamber of Commerce, Junior League of York, York Foundation, YWCA, Penn State York Advisory Board, Cultural Alliance, Martin Library, Girls Scouts, and many more.
