Comments:

I grew up in Delphi, and I am so proud of my hometown. I'm especially in awe of the folks who are working so hard to preserve the history and beauty of Delphi and Carroll County.

I graduated from Indiana University (BS in English, MS in Higher Ed Administration), spent 6 years working in university administration (Rider University, Trenton, NJ and U of Pennsylvania in Philly), and then 24 years with the U.S. Dept of Housing and Urban Development (Philly and DC). The last 10 years at HUD, I was editor-in-chief of HUD's website. I retired in 2005.

I married Baltimore native Russ Harrison in 1984 in the chapel at Home Hospital in Lafayette, same place I was born. Mom was in an accident the week before we were to get married so we took the wedding to her. We married in the tiny hospital chapel in front of my immediate family and beloved Delphi "moms" Edna Grimm and Betty Kent. We lived in Baltimore and Annapolis before moving to Tucson in 2001.

No kids. Many dogs. I love living in Tucson - love the desert. And I'm minutes from my sister Shelley and most of her adult children, who have been here many years.

For the past few years, I've been researching and putting together some books of memories, stories, photos and clippings about growing up on the Hill in Delphi in the 1950s and 60s. I was honored that my project was chosen as an Indiana Bicentennial Legacy Project (thanks to Bonnie Maxwell). I've finished 3 books - all available at the Delphi Public Library in hard copy and on the library website in digital form - and I'm working on my fourth. I also spend my time doing genealogy research, keeping in touch with old friends, hanging out with Russ, and playing with the dogs.

I feel lucky that I grew up in Delphi, Indiana.
