James Drummond Sr.
On Wednesday, August 3, 2016, a silent formation of B-24 Liberator bombers flew above Bozeman. A single bomber dropped out of formation to fly at rooftop level where the last missing brother, a young lieutenant, strapped into the pilot’s seat. The lone Liberator rose to rejoin the squadron, which soared home to the heavens, their final mission complete.
James Drummond Sr. was born in Anaconda, on February 9, 1921, to Scottish immigrants, Thomas and Jane Drummond. He grew up on the Mount Haggin Livestock Ranch between Anaconda and Deer Lodge and graduated from Powell County High School. His youth was full of stories of tending vast flocks of Hampshire sheep, putting up hay with horse drawn mowers, buck rakes and beaver slides, and daily ranch chores alongside his brothers, Dave and Tom.
Upon graduation from high school in 1941, Jim enrolled in Animal Industry at Montana State College (now MSU). His college aspirations were interrupted when he was called to the service of his country in October, 1943. After a short 40-hour pilot training, Jim, along with a crew of 12 other young men in their late teens and early 20s, began a journey across the ocean in a newly built B-24 Liberator to join with the 484th bomb group in Italy to battle Nazi Germany aggressions. Jim flew 50 successful bombing missions at a time when over a third of the aircraft flying each mission did not return home. On several missions all of the other aircraft in his squadron succumbed to flak or enemy fighters leaving his young crew the only Liberator to drop bombs and return to base. He received numerous commendations as a pilot including the Air Medal with Oak leaf clusters. After his 50th mission, Jim was deployed back to Texas to serve as an instructor pilot until the end of World War II.
When the war ended in 1945, Jim returned to Montana State College to complete his degree in Animal Industry. As a student at MSC, Jim was active in the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity where he met many lifelong friends. He was a Bobcat letterman lettering in wrestling his junior and senior years. He was manager of the Little International Livestock Exposition, a student senator and the co-editor of the 1948 MSC annual, the Montanan. His co-editor, George Watson, would eventually become his brother-in-law. While at MSC, Jim became enamored with a young Kappa Delta, Betty Watson, who was the daughter of Irish homesteaders from the prairie of Eastern Montana. The two became one and were able to continue their hand-holding and love affair for 67 years. His final words in life were “I love you” to Betty. Jim earned a Masters Degree in Animal Science at the University of Wyoming and returned to Bozeman to become an Animal Science Professor, Montana Extension Service Sheep Specialist and Director of the Montana Wool Laboratory. He held these positions until his retirement in 1980.
Jim was involved in the Bozeman Community throughout his working career and long into retirement. Jim was an active Boy Scout leader and eventually became chairman of the Mountain Valley District, BSA and on the board of directors of the Montana Council, BSA. He served as the DeMolay Dad Advisor, a 4-H judge, a ham radio operator (N7HEU), and chairman of the doughnut shop daily coffee klatch. He was a Master Mason and member of Bozeman Masonic Lodge #18. Along with Betty, Jim was especially involved in the Lilly of the Valley Eastern Star where he served as Worthy Patron, and eventually served the State of Montana as the Worthy Grand Patron.
Of all his titles, Jim was most proud of “Dad” and “Grandpa.” In his later years his greatest enjoyment came from camping with his grandchildren, teaching them how to operate a swather or a wood lathe, or patiently standing at their side on the banks of a stream with a fly rod. He was a man of principals and honor who loved his country, his family and anything “Made in Montana.”
He died peacefully surrounded by his family. Jim is survived by Betty, his companion of 67 years; his brother, Tom (Ruth); sons, Jim (Leslie), Bill (Nora), Bob (Linda); and his grandchildren, Kris, Taylor, Brian, Rachael and Natalie; and a number of nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Dave.
Memorials may be made in his name to Montana Council Boy Scouts of America, 1902 W. Dickerson St. #104, Bozeman, MT 59718 or to the M.S.U. Foundation/College of Agriculture, P.O. Box 172750, Bozeman, MT 59717.
Visitation was held Sunday, August 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Dokken-Nelson Sunset Chapel. A Celebration of Life was held Monday, August 8 at 11 a.m. at Bozeman United Methodist Church.
Arrangements are in the care of Dokken-Nelson Funeral Service. www.dokkennelson.com.
