In his third book, The Man Who Never Met A Stranger, author Reverend John R. Dolan combines the love and spirituality that infuse his other works to create not only an homage to his friend, Frank Nicholson, but also a model for readers who would love to succeed at their own endeavours.
Frank Nicholson's unstoppable positive attitude as well as his humor and grace motivated and inspired the author so much that he decided to write his friend's life story to share with the world.
From his birth just before World War II in England, through his employment in Nigeria during the Biafran conflict and Nigeria's Civil War, to the founding of the new American HMO system in the vast and complex Chicago Blue Cross and Blue Shield Organization, Frank Nicholson never met a stranger...
His attitude and inspiration influenced many other people besides his good friend, the author, John R. Dolan. As we follow Frank Nicholson in his travels around the world, we learn even more about the quality of this unique human being, qualities that, according to the author, will encourage others to follow their hearts, keep smiling, and live life in a generous and compassionate manner.

The Man Who Never Met A Stranger is a biography about Frank Edward Elliot Nicholson, one of

Frank and John quickly developed a deep friendship - as colleagues at Blue Cross Blue Shield, then as husbands and fathers with young families, and as jolly good friends. The Man Who Never Met A Stranger is John's tribute to Frank.
