About meI am retired after a career in adult education during which I held various administrative positions at the University of Wisconsin and the American Council on Education in Washington. I have written four books on education subjects, one of them a biography of the late adult education philosopher/lecturer [[Eduard Lindeman]]. My usual reading fare tends toward biography, autobiography, history, politics, and the environment.
About my libraryI collect biographies, autobiographies, memoirs, diaries, and letters in the following categories: (1) U.S. Presidents, (2) royalty, and (3) the Bloomsbury Group and am an avid reader of biographies in almost any category. I also have most books that have written about the art and craft of biography and autobiography. Approximately two thirds of the books in my library of about 1,100 books are biographies/autobiographies.
