He grew up in Moline, Illinois and earned a B.A. from Augustana College and a M.A. in history from the University of Illinois.
He taught social studies for thirty-three years, mainly at Webster Groves High School in St. Louis County.
In retirement he became interested in creative writing.
He has published the folowing books: Echoes and Shadows of Life, Nights of the Black Moon and Days of Sunshine, Dreams, Wishes and Fantasies of Common Folk and Home Front Diary -1944- A Family’s Awakening to Truth and Courage.
In retirement he also became a stand-up comic in some of the “joints” and “dives” in the greater St. Louis area. His stage name was Buddy Alley. Under that pen name Author House published his book Zany Humor for Elves, Imps and Clowns.
Xlibris published another humorous book that he wrote entitled “Dear Penis, My Love!”: A Hilarious Study of a Penis Obsession under the pen name of Louise Webb. In it he writes funny take offs of the classics -- everything from plays by Shakespeare to poems by Chaucer.
