About meI retired from Bank of America in March, 2012, having most recently been a Credit Risk Executive supporting the various wealth management units of the company on the West Coast. I graduated from Hamilton College in 1967, worked as a writer/editor in the social sciences for two years, did graduate work in history at Washington University in St. Louis, earned an MA in History in 1972, and reached ABD status. I studied with John Murrin, JGA Pocock, and Rowland Berthoff, with a concentration in 16th-18th century (Colonial) North and South America, and the British Isles. However at that point, recognizing the trends in the humanities in the 1970s (and ever since), I switched to a career in banking and earned an MBA from Washington University. I spent thirty-eight years in banking, mainly in credit, risk management, and commercial and investment banking. As noted, I have just retired from this career and am thinking about my next steps, which may include a return to history in some fashion, as is evident from my library.

About my libraryConcentrates in American and World history with secondary emphases in economics, investments, and finance, and science.
