My appointment at Virginia Commonwealth University, which is in Richmond, Virginia, was in the Department of Statistical Sciences & Operations Research. Before coming to VCU in 1987, I was a faculty member for 15 years in the Department of Mathematics at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. I was an assistant professor at Western Carolina University for one year (1971-1972), and prior to that, I enjoyed my years as a graduate student in Statistical Science at Southern Methodist University, in Dallas, Texas. I was a part time instructor for two years at SMU, and was a graduate teaching assistant at WTAMU in Canyon, Texas for the 1964-1965 academic year. I worked for Texas Instruments from 1965 to 1967.

On May 15, 2008, I retired from VCU and moved to Peachtree City, GA. If you would like to contact me, please use my VCU email address ( It remains active, and I check it frequently.
