"My educational background consists of an A.B., major in Geology, and a Ph. D. in Finance. Both degrees earned from Washington University in St. Louis. My principal work experience is somewhat varied. For three years I was a high school science teacher. Then I spent eight years as a Registered Representative for a New York Stock Exchange member firm. Now I teach at Clark University where I hold the rank of Professor."

"In high school I liked to play football; my favorite subject was English, and my biggest challenge was completing homework."
