Landscape Research

Planned and Serendipitous

I am a Midwesterner by birth born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1931—during the Great Depression. I have many pleasant memories from the 1930s when times were tough, memories of simple kinds of family activities—most often long walks with my sister Lorraine and my mother and father. My parents both came from large families, my mother, Germaine, had five brothers and sisters, and my dad, Ervin L., had six. There was no shortage of family support nor of cousins. The European roots were predominantly German; however, my mother’s maiden name was Petersen, providing one-quarter Scandinavian heritage.
