          Biography:

                      Born in 1930 in the bucolic little town of Ottawa,
		      Illinois of German immigrant parents, I soon showed
		      promise of things to come.  At the age of five I tried
		      to catch a ball thrown by my father and dropped it. 
		      Later when he tried teaching me to ride a bicycle,
		      I kept falling off.

                      When I was 10, my parents moved to the suburbs of Chicago
		      where I eventually attended Riverside-Brookfield High
	              School. When I failed to make the track team (or any
		      other team), I realized my dream of athletic greatness
		      was not to be realized.  It was then that I turned to
		      mathematics which was considered a sissy subject suitable
		      mainly for girls.  Since many attractive girls took the
		      subject and looked to me for help, I decided mathematics
		      was something to pursue.  Thus a career was born.

                      Well, not quite.  I studied industrial engineering at
		      General Motors Institute, was drafted by the Army,
		      studied electrical engineering at Mew Mexico State
		      University, and came to Milwaukee to practice my new
		      trade.  While working at AC Electronics, I took a night
		      school course in mathematics from Morris Marden.  He
		      suggested I go to graduate school in mathematics and
		      obtained an offer of a teaching assistantship for me in
		      Madison.  Since my work at AC, though interesting, was
		      likely to blow up (I worked on bombs), I decided to take
		      the offer.

                      My next four years as a graduate student were 
                      uneventful (except for my marriage and the birth of my
		      three children).  When my major professor, Jacob
		      Korevaar, left for a year's leave, I took a temporary
		      job in Milwaukee while writing my dissertation. 
		      I have been here since.  

                      Well, not quite.  I have taken every opportunity to visit
		      warmer places beginning with the University of
		      California-San Diego and ending with the University of
		      Hawaii recently.  All offers of visiting positions at
		      warmer places (in winter) will continue to be
		      accepted.
