My love of history started as a child living on a 7,000 acre wheat and cattle ranch in Eastern Washington. We had an Indian graveyard on our property plus an old Indian Trading Store, which had long since disappeared, but got me doing research in our county courthouse for the history of the area. My father worked as a independent contractor in Predatory Control for the Washington State Fish and Game from 1933 to 1946 plus he worked with the CCC camps in Eastern Washington and worked among the Colville Indians. His love of history and wildlife increased my interest in all things historical.
As I grew older, I got interested in the history of medicine, then Egyptology and finally World History. I finally got to be a guide up Hells Canyon and conduct the history tours on our trips. I not only learned about the settlers and Indians that lived in the canyon, I got interested in Geology, identifying all the rocks and even bought a rock polisher. Visiting every museum I could in Idaho and Washington, I learned more about state history than I learned from just reading the history out of textbooks. Living back east for a year (Massachusetts & New York State) increased my interest in American history immensely.
I had the opportunity to guest speak on the Plateau Indians in several Spokane middle and high schools in years past which was a real delight for me.
My schooling consisted of studying Latin in high school & German at the University of Idaho. I went on the take a two year correspondence course in Ophthalmology which lead me to work in the medical field for a number of years and also a four year correspondence course from Glen Cullen University gaining my BA in History and Archaeology.
I feel I would be an asset to any young student that is interested in history.
I was active in Civic Theater for about 15 years and also sang for many more years at rodeos, radio and civic clubs. I was fortunate to work for the local media here in Spokane at KHQ and KREM and did both radio and TV commercials for them and Ad Agencies.
I have never 'tutored' per se, but have an ongoing love and interest in history and research.
I have had the opportunity to visit archaeology digs and sites both in Europe and the United States plus I just had my first book published in 2012 which entailed the history of a German family that came to Boston in 1872, became Principles in Kindergarten Schools there and finally moved west to Idaho they they lived out their lives. Three years of research went into that book and I loved every minute of it.

I have read numerous books through the years on Archaeology by such noteworthy authors as C.W. Cerman and historians like N.G. Seaman plus my college studies on ancient civilizations both in Europe, Asia, Africa and the US.
This has been my life's hobby and interest and I have have been a guest speaker/teacher at Junior & Senior High Schools talking about the Plateau Indians plus my history guides up in Hell's Canyon, Idaho.
I have read MANY books on religions and donated over 200 books to our church library.
I attended the Berean School of the Bible which was a 4 month course learning the Bible, book by book.
We also learned about what religions are considered 'cults' and the various other foreign religions like Islam.
