Since 1960:

I received my BA from Dartmouth College in 1964 and my MBA from Tuck (Dartmouth) in 1965.
Went to work for Arthur Andersen & Co. in New York City.
In 1966 I was in Holland and met Carlee and her friend, Elaine. Then quite by accident I ran into Carlee 24 hours later in Germany and found out she was living in New York. About three months later I tracked her down through Lord & Taylor where she was working. In June 1968, we were married in her home town, Whitefield, NH.
By late 1969 I was trying to buy a business, but things weren't progressing as planned so I started interviewing consulting firms. I went to Arthur D. Little, Inc in Cambridge, MA, where I stayed for seventeen years.
In 1986 one of my client companies offered me the job as their President & CEO. The company was in the television business. After a long period of negotiation, they agreed to let me stay in the Boston area and just come to the headquarters for the monthly Board meetings. I was very glad I did. During my seventeen years of running the company I bought or started sixteen TV stations (principally ABC and NBC affiliiates) from North Carolina to California. I had a great group of managers and enjoyed every moment. Along the way some of the people I very much enjoyed were Michael J. Fox, Betty White, Rue McClannahan, Dennis Franz, Kim Zimmer, Sherry Stringfield and Brandon Tartikoff.
In 2004 we sold the company which was about a year and a half before it was obvious that the TV broadcasting business was no longer a good business to be in due to the competition from cable and the internet.
Throughout the years investing in the stock market had always been my hobby. After we sold the TV company, it became my principal vocation.

School Story:

I liked Susie Schroeder's story immensely, but I can't come up with one.
I did meet the beautiful Princess Astrid of Norway in the summer of 1961, and was treated by her to a two hour discourse on the history and economics of Norway. Of course, I had no idea she was a princess or I would never have sat down opposite her and started a conversation. I only learned who she was after her driver picked her up and several people came up to me and said, "Do you know who you were talking to? That is our Princess!"

Second Residence/Phone:
