The author's autobiographical note is succinct: "Born in the worst of the depression. Grew up in Hyde Park, a neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. Graduated from Hyde Park High in 1951. Thrown out of Boston Latin and left Technical High School voluntarily. Served in the Army like most people of that generation and railroaded for 45 years: Boston Terminal Co. New Haven Railroad, Penn Central and Conrail. "I came from three previous generations of railroaders. Enough is enough."
