About me


Raised on a family farm in NE Ohio, I have deep roots in the state and degrees from three of its universities. I lived at two major Underground Railroad junctions and want Americans to know that the Underground Railroad was mostly in Ohio and mostly above ground—not in tunnels!


As a former reference librarian and library director (Wittenberg University), I was once a “soldier in the information revolution.” But I discovered fascinating information about anti-slavery activity the old-style way: from yellowed papers in library archives. I hold a B.S. in Education from Ohio State, an M.L.S. from Kent State, and an M. Hum. from Wright State.

I am now retired and live with my husband in the sunny climes of Santa Fe NM, staying busy with friends, hobbies, and grandchildren.
