About the Author

Having lost my mother, father, and sisters at the age of twenty-three months, I spent my formative years with an aunt who became my foster-mother. The dispersion of my family after Willie Gertrude Hampton Stubbs died in 1936 is an underlying theme for the content of this book.

I spent my formative years in Naples, Texas, in the Price household. They were not pleasant times, but my cousin/foster sister, Ella Mae Barker, emerged as the most important person in my young life.

After high school graduation, I attended East Texas State Teachers College and earned a B. S. degree. I began my working career in the finance business but migrated to classroom teaching in Irving, Texas. During my seven years there, I earned an M. Ed. degree from North Texas State University.

After my foray into public education, I spent twenty-five years in the pharmaceutical business. My work there ranged from a drug rep to a scientific information specialist to a regional manager, and to a national training manager.

After retirement from the drug business, I spent four years in educational administration after which I retired.

My wife of fifty-seven years, Nancy Jacobs Stubbs, and I produced two sons, Michael Wayne Stubbs and Mark Alan Stubbs.
