Retired priest in the Episcopal Church and Professor Emeritus of American Literature at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, where I held a distinguished professorship and was a Fulbright Senior Lecturer; wife, Nancy, was both a health educator with women's health services and an adjunct lecturer in English. Our daughter, a parish administrator, lives in eastern Nebraska with her husband, a superintendent of schools, and two of our grandchildren, 16 year old Rowan and 11 year old Brody. Our son, an attorney, lives in Milwaukee with his wife, a college administrator, with our other two grandchildren, 34 year old Willie and 2 year old Greta. We neither smoke nor drink and have no pets. We like walks, concerts, books, community work, and travel (lived in China for 6 months). We have never lived in a place that we didn't leave better than
we found it. One life motto followed me from boyhood; it was etched into the facade of the local newspaper where I grew up: Service is the rent we pay for the space we occupy in the world.
