Frank loved to be outside. So much in fact he refused to work in the 1957 building, rather he switched to the maintenance department to continue working outdoors.
Frank McKnight was a fossil preparator at the Carnegie Quarry. Frank was a river guide for the National Park Service when he was hired by paleontologist Ted White. Frank assisted White in overburden removal and reliefing work in the temporary quarry shelter before the construction of the 1958 Quarry Visitor Center. McKnight continued to relief fossils in the Quarry Visitor Center. He died in Vernal, Utah in 1997.
