Junior High School:



Went to Western Illinois my freshman year of college and then transferred to the U of Minnesota. My family moved to Minnesota the summer of 1969. Received my B.S.(economics) and Ph.D. (agricultural and applied economics) from Minnesota. Was married the week before I started graduate school and divorced the week I defended my thesis. Graduate school plays hell with a marriage. My daughter from my first marriage is a lawyer in Chicago and used to work in the same building where Randy Taylor is with Chase - my daughter's law firm has since moved to a new building across the street. I will catch a cup of coffee or lunch with Randy during a week-day when I am in town for a conference or seeing my daughter.

I remarried in 1986 and have two more daughters. The youngest is a junior in high school so I do not plan to retire until she is done with college. I got back for the Friday night part of the 30th reunion, but left on Saturday since it was Halloween that weekend. The past few years I try to get back once in the summer to play some golf with McDonough, Taylor, Bolier, True, Johnson and some of the guys from Crown.

The picture was taken in Mexico in 2007 when my daughter got married. I rarely wear a tie and even more rarely wear a tux. Most of you would not recognize me without the picture. I was only 5'2" as a sophomore and 5'8" as a senior. I grew another 4" after high school and put on some weight.
