Personal

 

I was born in Des Moines, Iowa on October 25, 1948 and moved to Texas while still in school, graduating from Coahoma High School, Coahoma, TX in 1967. I attended college at Sam Houston State University and then returned to Iowa to carry out graduate work at the University of Iowa, under the direction of Prof. R. E. Buckles. After a year of postdoctoral work at the University of Arkansas, I took a position at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. I was tenured in 1984, and was offered a position at Sam Houston State University that same year.  I am now Professor of Chemistry and my wife is Chair of the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences.

 

We have a son (B.A., German and History, M.A, History, and a daughter-in-law from Iasi, Romania,(B.A. M. A., English) who both teach in Florida, son-in-law (B.S. Economics) and a daughter (B.S., Nutritional Sciences) who obtained her M.S. in Chemistry who both work in College Station, TX.
