About the Author

James Barlow taught high school social studies courses for over 40 years in the Beaverton, Oregon from 1962 to 2005. During his long career as an educator, he was the recipient of numerous local and national awards for his teaching. Jim also held senior leadership roles within Oregon High School International Relations League Model United Nations, the Oregon Council for the Social Studies, and Advanced Placement Teachers of the State of Oregon. In 1964 he founded the Model Presidential Nominating Convention and led it for four decades. Conventions brought together thousands of students from across the region in a boisterous and authentic multi-day simulation run entirely by high school students. It became an important fixture in Oregon presidential politics and grew so large that it was held at the Memorial Coliseum for the last three decades. National leaders such as Nelson Rockefeller, Robert Kennedy, George McGovern, Hubert Humphrey, Jesse Jackson, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Michael Dukakis, and Bill Clinton, amongst many others, visited and gave speeches to high school students. A life-long Portland, Oregon resident and a descendent of a famous Oregon Trail pioneer, Jim lives with his wife and cats.

Anil Naik was a high school student under James Barlow. He has traveled to 50 countries across the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Europe, including teaching in an International Baccalaureate World School in Beirut, Lebanon. He continues to be actively involved with the International Baccalaureate. His interests are in anthropology and world history. A son of Indian immigrants, he currently teaches high school social studies courses in Beaverton, Oregon, where he lives with his wife and two young boys.
