My father was a phD, not an MD, in Chemical Enineering from Iowa State. My brother, Matthew, here is Atlanta is an MD from Emory University Med. I am an Engineer from Auburn. My sister went to Iowa State as well in Mathematics and then Civil Engineering. I am actually in Kennesaw, a NW burb of Atlanta ... Matt is in Duluth, a NE burb (practice is in Cumming ... due north). My Dad died just a couple of years ago. My Mom ... nee Mary Jo Bostwick of Boone, IA ... is in nursing care with altzheimers. I am 52.
Betty, one of my Dad's sisters was a 5th grade teacher in Cedar Rapids ... well respected... won awards. Her sister, Flo, is a published author of Special Ed text books (Florence Markey Schmerler). I have no idea what NJ did ... but he was a hell of a nice guy. He died of lung cancer back in the 60's (?) in Cedar Rapids or Iowa City. David
