A Professor of Modern European History at Ohio University, I have made the study of Europe a vocation. After studies of political science and history at Harvard, the University of Oklahoma and Ludwig- Maximilian University of Munich, I have spent much of my subsequent life researching European history. The sale of Choctaw tribal lands in Oklahoma that I inherited allowed me to follow a dream. I bought property France and London as a home for my family. Upon retirement from teaching, I joined the UK Harvard Club and close Anglophone community, centered on the Anglican Church of Beaulieu in a uniquely friendly corner of France. I reserve for my own use a studio apartment in France and fly to London to my other home. I enjoy the opportunity to welcome visitors, to answer any questions of first time visitors, and settle them in before leaving to fly to London or by train and bicycle to travel around France, etc.

I sold a farm that I inherited in Oklahoma and invested the proceeds in a house in central London in 1992. I used it for 3 annual research trips to France or to London to use London Library and the Public Record Office. One bed room I use as an office and for visitors.
