I was born in Hamilton, Ohio, in 1925, a confession that I am an old geezer. I served in the infantry during World War II, was wounded and discharged in 1946.  I then obtained a B.A. degree with honors in English in 1949.  Subsequently I taught in Cincinnati public schools and at the University of Cincinnati for the next 35 years.
