Brief Biographic Résumé

Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1927.

Attended Catholic elementary schools; Marquette University High School, in the Jesuit Latin/Greek discipline;
Marquette University; St Stanislaus Jesuit Seminary, Florissant MO;
Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, Washington DC;
Universidad Iberoamericana Jesuit university in Mexico City;
and Georgetown University Graduate School;
Berlitz Institute, Guadalajara, Mexico;
and the Foreign Service Institute language school.

Traveled to Germany in the summer of 1950 to work with Bavarian Caritas (Catholic Charities),
but because of the Korean police action, enlisted in the U.S. Army,
serving in Germany and France (1950-1952).

Except for an interim as assistant dean of Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico City in 1956,
entire civilian career was with the United States Department of Commerce
or Foreign Commercial Service in the international field:
1957 – 1973
worked in Washington DC on Latin American affairs, from country desk officer up to director;
1973 – 1984
served as deputy director of the trade and international marketing centers at the American Embassies in Mexico City, Tehran and Bonn,
with temporary duty in Zagreb, and as commercial officer in the American Consulate General in Montreal.
In 1982 was commissioned as Consular Officer.

After retirement, worked as a volunteer with the Whitman-Walker Clinic (AIDS services) in Washington DC:

1985 – 1994 management committee of their housing services and food bank, being chairman after 1987;
1987 – 1994 on the AIDS steering committee;
1989 – 1992 on board of directors; and was a principal founder of the Washington AIDS Walk.

In April 1992 was invested in the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, of Rhodes and of Malta,
a very old religious order of the Catholic Church, established about 1070,
and currently one of the principal relief agencies in the world.

In December 1995 became the second American-born, and the third person born in the Western Hemisphere
to be admitted to the First Class of the Order, as a Knight of Justice,
subject to the religious vows of obedience, poverty and chastity,
and eligible to work in the governance of the Order.
The Order of Malta, as it is commonly known today, is very active providing domestic emergency medical training,
ambulance and hospital services, aid to the sick and the poor and disaster relief in many countries where it is established,
and providing international aid and assistance to the sick, the poor, refugees, displaced persons, and the like in over a hundred countries.
