After an MS in Psychology from CSULA in 1963, I earned a UCSB Ph.D. in Biological Science in 1970 while working for Human Factors Research Inc. (HFR), a contract research organization, where I became Vice President for R&D. In 1977, I accepted a fellowship to the Swiss Federal Institute for Technology and remained in Europe for 21 years, getting better and better jobs in the fascinating field of Psychopharmacology. In 1986, I became the first Professor of Experimental Psychopharmacology at Dutch University of Maastricht and worked there with outstanding colleagues and students until I retired back to Santa Barbara in 1998. I taught at UCSB, and was also appointed Staff Psychopharmacologist at Tri-Counties Regional Center for the Developmentally Disabled, where I still am. I monitor the effectiveness and safety of TCRC's clients' medication. Leacy and I will shortly celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary in our Solvang home with five children and nine grandchildren, all are doing fine.
