Once Upon a Time Barbara Richardson Came to Dinner 

April 19, 2009

Barbara Richardson came to Sunday Dinner

Barbara is one of my most long-time friends.

Years ago we worked together at the National Institute for Education and left together with all the other Excepted Service employees at the pleasure of the newly minted political appointee Checker Finn.

Barbara left to become the Academic Vice President at West Virginia Wesleyan and then Professor at Western Michigan University from which she retired in 2008.

Over the years, I've visited Barbara many times in Michigan and at her summer home in Maine, and most recently at her winter home in Florida.
