OMG! Seriously? Studied at Purdue; went to U Illinois for grad school; graduated in '71. Received a D. Litt. from Purdue in 2013. Married twice, three children, five grandchildren. Taught in Canada two years; rest of time at Rice U. in Houston (38 more years). Had a year each in London, Rome, Princeton, and Salt Lake working on books of various sorts. A Guggenheim romance in Rome led to much younger husband #2, born in Italy. Traveled many places for conferences; wrote many academic books and some poetry; took up photography in retirement, when I lived in Galveston and thought I'd stay (but didn't). Still love traveling, of course. Regret nothing; had a great time.
