About the Author

Richard Johnston, Ed.D., grew up as part of an itinerant working family in the Pacific Northwest. His father, a socialist, devoted his energy to organizing fellow laborers into unions. He dreamed of creating a happier world through union brotherhood. In a variety of rural schools Richard settled for passing grades while reading adventure books like Mantrap by Sinclair Lewis. A student at Eastern Washington College of Education, he served as sports editor of the journal and helped to earn his way as a stringer for daily papers in Spokane, Washington. During World War II Richard was assigned to infantry training at Camp Roberts, California, before being transferred to study in the U.S. Army Counterintelligence Corps School located at Holabird Signal Depot in Baltimore, Maryland. Later he joined the faculty to teach in that school for the duration of the war. At Columbia University he met and married photographer Mary Alice Boyce. After finishing their studies in New York they used their remaining G.I. Bill entitlement to study at the Sorbonne in Paris. When those funds were exhausted Richard found employment with the U.S. Army Dependents School system. They remained in Paris for eight years. Back in the U.S. Richard was a professor in three state universities before becoming a founding faculty member of an experimental Public Affairs school, Sangamon State University (now a part of the University of Illinois) in Springfield. There, intrigued by the possibility of democratizing education through the relatively new Community College movement, he edited Community College Frontiers, a quarterly publication (1976-1982). His articles and book reviews have been published in national and international journals. Living now in Colorado Richard enjoys writing, and hiking with his wife on mountains trails.
