First, I am sorry that I did not post this in advance of the workshop. But, better late than never!
I was born in the midwest, in a small town in Illinois, Moline. Moline is the HQ of John Deere tractors and other farm implement manufacturers. During the time I grew up there in the late forties and fifties Moline was a prosperous community benefitting from the pent up demand for farm equipment that farmers had not bought during World War II.
In high school I loved my physics teacher and determined to make that my college major. I ended up going to Northwestern University and studying physics for two years, but then switched out of science into the humanities.
Probably the best way to contact me is by email at
My phone number at the TERC office is 617 873 9673.
On Mondays and Fridays I work from my home in Maine. My email is the same, but the phone number there is:

I look forward to hearing from you and am happy to help with any questions you may have!
