If interested in Oard's article, check out No. 168 at

I do not know if this is the original "monograph" but it does carry the
same name as the one that Allen mentioned. You should be able to get the
jest of Oard's understanding of glaciation.

As a note, Oard is presently residing in Great Falls Montana, from my
experience in the region (Masters research on Quaternary geology in
Pacific Northwest and northern Rockies) multiple glaciations are much more
controversial there then they are in the midwest. Like midwesterners who
refuse to recognize the implications of the stratigraphy that underlie
their living rooms (I was a YEC until God confronted me with the
Belt Supergroup, the Columbia River Basalts, the "Latah Formation," the
loess hills of Washington and Idaho, with their multiple paleosols,
Glacial Lake Missoula and its Flood deposits and erosional
features, etc), Oard can live in his delusion of one glaciation in western
Montana without local contridictory evidence. However that does not
justify his statements, and he should do some serious research if he
wants to dabble in Quaternary studies.
