  10. BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHCollege Educational Co-operative “The head of the chemical company was a deeply religious man who lived his faith. He took a liking to me and even invited me to go to church with him several times. My guess is that he hoped I would be inspired by his example and take the Lord as my personal savior. In Europe I had been in many of the great cathedrals, so I was comfortable in church and stood and sang and respectfully lowered my head whenever he did. But I had no spiritual awakening.”

  14. BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH “For reasons I still can’t sort out (the pressure of graduate school was no doubt one), I experienced terrible anxiety that year in London. It hit me suddenly. I was in a butcher shop one day and ran out when the butcher picked up a cleaver and slammed it down on a piece of meat. I couldn’t bear to be alone. I would lie awake, unable to fall asleep until four in the morning. I went to see the film A Place in the Sun, and my heart began to pound so hard that I walked out halfway through. I began having a recurrent dream. . . . It was horrifying…”

At Buffalo and Cincinnati I stole time from my family in my drive to transform those universities. There were cultural pressures as well. . . . .
