About the Author
Born in Brooklyn, New York to Canadian parents, Wavell Cowan then spent an idyllic childhood in a paper mill town in northern Quebec. With a kindergarten teacher as mother and a Jewish father, he became a voracious reader. High school and college years in Montreal (spent largely on hockey rinks and tennis courts – an early passion) led to a degree in mechanical engineering from McGill University. A summer on a showboat on the Ohio River performing before audiences from Cincinnati to Louisville exemplified the arrival of a second passion – the theater. During his doctoral studies in Appleton, Wisconsin, a third passion emerged – scholarship. This led to a career as an independent pulp and paper scientist, developing process equipment and test instruments now in pulp and paper mills worldwide. His passion for problem-solving led to leadership roles in multiple elected town positions and in other organizations from community newspapers to a community orchestra. These passions and life experiences made possible this book.
