psychologist Married 1 3 I had a really wonderful time at Mizzou until I developed mononucleosis the second semester of my freshman year. Undaunted by that, my pursuit of things less academic continued until my microbiology professor had, in my case, a come to Moses talk with me in his wonderings as to why I was a student at his university. This seemed to be a seminal moment in my life as henceforth I did quite well which not only enabled me top graduate roughly on time in biology but get accepted into the counseling psychology program at Mizzou. Just before recieving a master's degree, I was able to join the 325th General Hospital USAR as a medic to avoid becoming a very large target in the jungle. I essentially worked as a psychiatric medic on inpatient units which increases my mental health exposure. After active duty I worked as a counselor, tennis coach and part time psychology teacher at Penn Valley CC for 9 years. During this time I became interested in more of a clinical exposure and increased autonomy so I began the doctoral program in counseling psych at UMKC. After graduation in '79 I followed my fiancee to Santa Fe where I did my post doc with a forensic psychiatrist and at the Penitentiary of New Mexico. I eventually became the director of the mental health program. After 4 years of working in a difficult and dangerous setting I left to join a long time friend in the Portland/Vancouver area in private practice. Not surprisingly, while at the Pen. I learned a great deal about treating trauma and character disorders. I've now been in private practice with my friend who went to Center HS for 28 yrs. Unmarried since 39, I met a truly wonderful person 10 years later. We've been married since and managed to have our only child, now 15, along the way. I've become quite involved with the small Jewish community in Vancouver since my mid 40's becoming its president for a time and now a board member. Robert was a Bar Mitzvah 2 years ago and now we are weeks away, 9-6-12, from dedicating the first newly constructed synagogue in southwest Washington. As my job is not exactly laborious but is enjoyable plus there's college looming for young Rob, I am continuing to work. My past times involve golf, bicycling, weight lifting and gardening. HS at its best, at least for most, seems to be comprised of moments great fun, periods of boredom and other times of anxiety, wondering where and how one fits, as well as, who one, or in this case me, is. Southwest was no exception. In many ways being a student at Southwest may have been more difficult with its unique religious and socio-economic stratification. I think I was advantaged in someways because of my size. Most people knew me and at least acted like they liked me and shockingly I was never bullied. The faculty was another matter. With reflection, I believed a number of them lived on the reputation of the school rather than on their merits. Many teachers seemed to be indifferent, at least to me. Those who "got me" I did well with: Frank Stark, George Campbell, Chaney O. Williams, Ms. Neal, Mr. Harriman, wonderful Geo. Ewing, and coach Robinson. Then there was Eleanor Dolson who accused me of plagiarizing an in class book report because she "couldn't have written it better", Grace Breen, the inspiration of fear rather than joy in public speaking, and Tom E. Kipp, who had a remarkable capacity to not develop basketball ability.

IT Single Again 1 3 •Drake University BA, fraternity man, President of Student Government
Draft notice from our favorite draft board.
•Trekked east from Abidjan—the names still roll of the tongue like mint in summer--up to Bouake then to Ferkessedougoug, across the borders to Ouagadougou, Boulsa, Dargo, Niamey, Dosso, Dogondoutchi, Maradi, then west to Ft. Lamy. Moved up the African plain to the Sahel and Tibli mountains, through Mongo, Ati, Faya Largeau, and Abeche. Captured by the heat and fury of the desert. And the Sahel dwellers. And the foreboding desert tribes. Linked up with the 10eme Para. Watched a rebellion gather steam.
•A needed sabbatical to Chicago, Roosevelt University, MA.
•An escape to the Special Education District of McHenry county in northern Illinois. Met Steve Goodman; met John Prine.
•Then to Paris where they found me again. So on up to Sidi Bel Abbes, Algeria, the last outpost of the French Foreign Legion, on to Alger, and Boumerdes. Watched an insurgency seethe.
•Slipped in time at Boston University, PhD, cheating those who wanted me to specialize in languages—majored in comparative literature instead.
•Then reassigned to Tehran and watched that revolution unfold. Hitched onto the last civilian plane out of Tehran. Got the moniker, “revolutionary Dave” since everywhere I went…
•Traded hair shirt for silk shirt and took a sojourn in Paris. Four years in the City of Lights doing telecommunications.
•Formed DML Associates to consult in IT/telecommunications to FedGov and various telcos while contending with family challenges. Joined General Dynamics in 2008 bringing over client contacts and serving DHS.
•Now also picking up gigs locally and in West Virginia and Maryland as The Second Coming, writing songs, murdering other people’s songs, having a blast. I’ll still spin a good yarn or sing a sad song for a glass of cheap wine.
Teen-age angst followed by moments of ectasy soon dashed by Mrs. Anderson.
Comic relief from Mrs. Welch and others too numerous to list here.
