After leaving Princeton in 1970 I moved to New York where I lived for 30
years. During this time, around 1985, I changed professions
(painlessly) to that of writer--witness my list of publications below.
In early 2000 I resigned my position as general manager
of SCI and left New York for Texas to be close to my sister and to help
with the family of one of my nephews (witness my great-nephews above!).
As fate would have it, I returned to SCI in 2002 to manage
the Society from a virtual office in Mineral Wells. Here I hope to be a
help to my sister in her final years, to be a good great-uncle, and to
keep SCI running. I also hope to publish my novels as well as place as
well as place my out-of-print music theory books on the Internet.
A more recent note: my sister is gone now. The boys pictured above, as
well as my other great nieces and nephews are growing up fast. Some
are in college. I hope I was a help. I try to contribute to the
community. I am chairman of the advisory board of our local library. I
cast about for an agent for my novels, and I continue to write.
