Settings of a Professional Lifetime

  • Roger G. Barker
Part of the Human Behavior and Environment book series (HUBE, volume 11)


I was born in Iowa in 1903. My forbearers came from Western Europe in the seventeenth century and were pioneers in the westward movement. At the time of my birth, they were businessmen and government officials in the small communities of Western Iowa. The first 7 years of my life were spent in one of these small towns where my father ran the general store. I had a happy early childhood in our family of five children.
